Our family was very similar to most other families. We were living paycheck to paycheck. We had debt and a pretty substantial amount. Any time we received extra money from a tax return, sale of house or extra paycheck, we spent it. We went on vacations and bought things we wanted. But we had no savings and had no idea how we were going to live once we retired, or if anything had ever happened to either of us.
But all that changed. We recently graduated from Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University with a wealth of knowledge on how to get rid of debt, save for our future and give to others. Since starting the class we have created an emergency fund and paid off over $2500 using the debt snowball. We view money as a blessing now, have a plan in place and goals to achieve.
Live like no one else today, so you can live and give like no one else tomorrow!
After starting FPU, we quickly realized we needed to teach our children how to be good stewards of God’s money, as well. We don’t want them to learn money lessons the hard way like we did or think that loans and credit cards are a way of life. We want to teach them to work hard for their money and how to manage it well, including saving, spending and giving. Once we learned about Financial Peace Jr., we knew this would be a great tool for teaching our kids how to handle money.

- Activity Book
- Give, Save, Spend Envelopes
- Electronic Smart Money Smart Kids Book
- Video Lessons

- Dry Erase Chore Chart, Labels, Frame and Marker
- Story Time Book Set

Big C recently completely all of her lessons and “graduated” from Financial Peace, Jr. She is excited to earn her own commission and handle her money the right way. On pay day, her first 10% goes into the give bank, then she divides her money into save and spend. Big C set a goal to give to an organization called Instride Therapy
, which partners with horses and challenges people with special needs to reach their full potential. She is saving up for sparkly, light up shoes!
Teach your kids how to handle money so your legacy is a blessing, not a curse.
Financial Peace Jr. is perfect for children 3 to 12 years old. Your child will learn how earning works, how to save and pay cash, the value and importance of giving, have fun spending money on a plan, why debt is dangerous, and integrity!
