Tonight Adrian and I had a great celebration!!! In Spring 2010, we were given a copy of Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover from a wise financial advisor at our church. We caught the vision to get out of the BIG debt we’d incured since Reese was born, four credit cards deep. No fancy cars or big screen TVs, just regular ol’ living expenses that added up without a second income.
God has been so faithful in allowing us to steadily make progress against this mountain of debt, and today we paid off the THIRD of our four credit cards, so we’re pretty excited!!!
We celebrated with a big splurge of Chinese food take out after the kiddos went to bed… something we would love to do every Friday night (or even once a month!) but have been careful not to do since starting our money makeover back in June 2010.
Here’s to one more down! We are both so grateful.
One card to go…. then it’s on to the biggest mountain of all, Adrian’s school loan. We have faith that we WILL get there, sooner than later! :)
