Update: The winners of this giveaway are ~
I'm so excited to share a special giveaway with you this week! Each Thursday in April, I'll have FIVE copies of The Total Money Makeover: A Proven Plan for Financial Fitness by Dave Ramsey to share with five lucky readers, and know that this book can transform your financial future.
My husband and I initially took Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University almost ten years ago, and it had a huge impact on our finances and marriage. While we had always lived frugally and stayed on a budget, the encouragement in the class to payoff all our debt (for us that included cars and student loans) and continue to live on a cash budget motivated us while working towards our long term goals. As I've shared before, it wasn't always easy (in fact, it still isn't always easy!) but being able to save, give, and live abundantly has made our marriage and family so much more peaceful over the years. We haven't had any debt besides our home for the last five years, and the day that we paid off that last student loan felt like Christmas morning at our house.
Over the last month I've enjoyed reading The Total Money Makeover, and was again reminded of why we choose to live differently than what society tells us is “normal”. The success stories in the book are so motivating, and it reminded me why we make daily decisions to wisely manage our finances, no matter what anyone else does around us. One of the (many!) surprising facts Dave shares in The Total Money Makeover was this:
“History also teaches us that debt wasn't always a way of life; in fact, three of the biggest lenders today were founded by people who hated debt. Sears now makes more money on credit than on the sale of merchandise. They are not a store; they are a lender with some stuff out front. However, in 1910 the Sears catalog stated, ‘Buying on Credit is Folly.' ”

I have no idea where your finances are today, but if credit cards or other debts have left you struggling with how to gain control, reading The Total Money Makeover is a great place to start. You'll be challenged and encouraged to make wise financial decisions, and your financial future will be changed. I promise, you have the power to control your finances, and this is a great way to start.
