I heart Dave Ramsey

It is with great joy that I post the following:

We're DEBT FREE!!!!!!!!!!

After two years of enveloping it month after month and counting our pennies we no longer have any debt aside from our house. Thanks to my wonderful pal, Mar, I read the Total Money Makeover by Dave Ramsey a couple years ago. I told my baby-dad all about it and being the frugal nerds that we are, we jumped right on board. The Lord has completely provided every single dime it took to get us out of debt. We have always tried to see the money in our bank account as His money and to hold onto that money with open hands. Our main debt was my student loan...after four years of being a mom, five years of having a Bachelor's Degree and a mere three months of using my degree in the work force, I am so glad to be rid of that dang student loan. It followed me around like a dark cloud and now it's gone, baby, gone! So, to celebrate this wonderful, bless-ed event, I am giving away a copy of the Total Money Makeover to a randomly selected commenter. If you already own a copy of TMM, I will be happy to give you another book that spurred me on over the last two years: The Millionaire Next Door. These two books, (along with the B-i-b-l-e) really kept me on track financially during our debt payoff. I have a picture of me clicking the mouse to pay off our debt electronically that I planned on posting, but like a dork, I am holding up the statement from my student loan that includes all kinds of personal information that does not need to be broadcast via blogger. If you want to know how we did all this debt paying off business, leave me a question in the comments or shoot me an email.

Winners will be announced sometime Thursday. No entries accepted after midnight Wednesday. Peace.

    We are working hard too. Today is HOPEFULLY going to be a HUGE step forward for you as we are SUPPOSED to sell our van/get rid of a car loan.
    I can't imagine your happiness to be finished with debt. Soon. Very soon. It'll be us!=)
