More than 2 million families have positively changed their financial future through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU).
The updated, nine-week course provides families and individuals with practical tools to gain control of their finances and set themselves up for long-term financial success.
The course meets once a week, where a different lesson is taught by Ramsey on DVD, followed by a small-group discussion. Lessons include budgeting, relationships and money, getting out of debt, saving for emergencies and investing.
FPU will be held in Wellington at Chenoweth Community Class, located at 14161 Greentree Drive. The classes will begin Friday, Sept. 20 at 7:30 p.m. Call Kim Chenoweth at (954) 643-3555 to register.
Through common-sense principles and small-group accountability, FPU gives people the tools they need to change their behavior and succeed financially. On average, families who complete FPU pay off $5,300 and save $2,700 in the first 90 days. Following the class, nearly 94 percent of the families budget regularly.
“FPU will not only transform the way you handle money, but also your marriage and other areas of your life,” Ramsey said. “This isn’t a boring financial class. We make learning about money fun and easy to understand, so people in every situation can benefit from the information.”
Ramsey knows first-hand the pain that financial stress can cause. After creating a net worth of more than $1 million by age 26, he quickly lost it all. Since then, Ramsey has helped families and individuals across the country learn how to get control of their finances and avoid debt so they don’t have to experience the same pain he did.
FPU lessons also include guest speakers Rachel Cruze, speaker and daughter of Dave Ramsey; Jon Acuff, author of Wall Street Journal bestseller Quitter and the popular blog Stuff Christians Like; and Chris Hogan, counselor and speaker for the Dave Ramsey organization.
FPU is offered through churches and community centers. After purchasing a membership, each participant receives a workbook, Dave Ramsey’s Complete Guide to Money, an envelope system and an audio CD library. Participants also have access to budgeting forms and MP3s of the lessons. For more information, visit www.daveramsey.com.
