(My husband and I at one of Dave Ramsey's book signings in 2003)
Thanks to the wisdom of God's Word, gleaning from Laine's Letters and other great sources of inspiration, and listening 
regularly to Dave Ramsey, we've been out of debt since 2003 (except for the house), and now enjoy the freedom 
to pursue things we enjoy, and are now able to bless others in a way we never could while we were in debt. 
I still hunt for bargains. It's a way of life now. 

As Dave Ramsey says, "If you will live like no one else, later, you can live like no one else!"

"In the house of the wise are stores of choice food and oil,
but a foolish man devours all he has." Proverbs 21:20
