If you read here with any consistency, you know I'm a huge fan of Dave Ramsey. I reluctantly started listening to his radio show about two and half years ago at the insistence of my husband. After only listening a few times, I was hooked. Not only did this guy have so much common-sense wisdom to share and a gutsy way of sharing it, but I knew that his message was direly needed in our culture.
My husband and I were already committed to staying out of debt, we only had one credit card which we used very infrequently, and we were living on a strict budget. However, after a few months of listening to Dave Ramsey, we cut up our one credit card, tightened down the hatches on our budget even more, and were inspired to set big audacious goals and work hard toward them.
After over two years of implementing much of what Dave Ramsey teaches, we have been amazed at how much more money we've been able to save. We never expected to be so close to actually buying a home with cash only a few years out of law school and it is truly thanks to the grace of God, the wise examples of our parents, and the inspiration we've received from Dave Ramsey.
Whether you're in a great place financially or completely in despair over your finances, I would highly recommend you check out Dave Ramsey. I think you, too, just might catch some of the some passion and "gazelle intensity" we have for saving and giving!
