Dave Ramsey Invites Nancy Alcorn to Lead Staff Devotion

3Yesterday, Nancy Alcorn, Founder and President of Mercy Ministries, considered it a great privilege to be invited by her dear friend, Dave Ramsey, to speak to his nearly 300 staff during their weekly devotional time. Dave and Sharon Ramsey have been long-time supporters of Mercy Ministries and Dave has helped countless people with their finances as a popular radio personality and author of several New York Times Best Sellers including The Total Money Makeover.

Dave dedicates time each Wednesday morning for his staff to have an opportunity to begin their day in prayer and Bible study. Nancy used this time to encourage his team that they are making a difference by helping people. She also talked about the power of our choices. Using a slideshow of pictures of girls who had come through the Mercy program and elaborating on the choices that they had each made to change, she emphasized that each of these young women had to let go of their past in order to experience lasting change. Nancy explained how Mercy Ministries and Dave Ramsey’s Lampo Group are similar because they are both in the people-helping business, teaching people that their past does not have to determine their future.

Here is what Nancy Alcorn had to say about her time with Dave’s incredible team:

“I count it a great honor to call Dave and Sharon Ramsey my friends, and I was even more proud of them today as I saw the impact they are having on so many people in this country and beyond. Times are tough and Dave’s team continues to extend great wisdom to people about budgeting, planning and living debt free. I loved connecting with the truly wonderful people in this organization.”
