750,000 families gain hope for their financial future

Nashville, TN – Financial Peace University (FPU), the 13-week program taught by Dave Ramsey, has helped more than 750,000 families positively change their financial future. This life-changing program teaches families and individuals how to handle their money through common-sense principles and small group accountability. FPU classes will be held in Cedar Springs at:

The Springs located at 135 N. Grant St. in Cedar Springs. The classes will begin Sunday, September 13, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. Contact Janet Van Dyke at (616) 696-4989 or janetvandyke@netscape.net for more information or to register.

Solon Center Wesleyan Church located at 15671 Algoma Ave. NE in Cedar Springs. The classes will begin Monday, September 14, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. Contact Annette DeGraaf at (616) 636-8349 or ardegraaf@yahoo.com for more information or to register.

As they work on a Total Money Makeover, the average family pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700 in the first 91 days after beginning FPU and is completely out of debt, except for the mortgage, in 18 to 24 months. “We’ve actually relieved ourselves of over $50,000 worth of debt in two years just from using these principles,” said Russ Lee, form FPU participant.

The program is made up of 13 life-changing lessons taught by Dave Ramsey on DVD in a fun and entertaining way. “I like to put the cookies on the shelf where everyone can reach them,” says Ramsey. After each lesson the group meets to help each other plan budgets, discuss successes and temptations, and support each other in their journey to beat debt and build wealth. Topics covered include:

  • Saving for emergencies
  • Budgeting
  • Relationship and money issues
  • Buying big bargains
  • Getting out of debt
  • Understanding investments
  • Understanding insurance
  • Retirement and college planning
  • Buyer beware
  • Real estate mortgages
  • Careers and extra jobs

“FPU classes are changing lives across the country every day,” says Louis Falzetti, executive vice president of Financial Peace University. “There is something for everyone in this program whether you are barely making ends meet, just trying to plan for retirement, or seeking to build wealth. No matter what your financial situation, you will find FPU to be the best motivational tool available across the nation to help you attain financial peace.”
