Volunteer discussion leaders Paula and Clint Tacker first attended this program in 2006 and have paid off over $74,000 off in debt over three years. When ask how this happened, Paula said, “When we began learning about budgeting, actually communication and setting goals and practicing skills … Finally even the cars are paid for.” The miracle is that our income was significantly limited beginning June 15, 2006 until now yet we still were able to keep paying bills off. “The peace that comes from having no debt is just amazing. I did not think it was possible.”
A free class preview is set for June 14 at 10:25 a.m. and June 24 at 6:15 p.m. Deadline to register is June 28.
