Mercy Ministries Residents Attend Dave Ramsey LIVE!

Popular radio show host and New York Times Best Selling author, Dave Ramsey, invited the Nashville residents to attend his fun, interactive, high-energy presentation on financial principles last Saturday. Before graduating from the Mercy Ministries program, all residents complete Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University and are equipped to make smart money decisions for their futures. It was a special treat for the Nashville residents to hear his entertaining and motivating presentation in person. Here’s what some of the girls had to say about the event:

Total Money Makeover was empowering and entertaining. I feel like I have the tools I need to gain financial independence and with Dave’s motivation, I feel going through the steps will be fun and liberating. - Sandy

I loved going to the event today! Dave was so funny and totally got me motivated. When I get a job I will definitely start saving for my emergency fund. – Heather

Because I’m so young, it’s hard to wrap my head around things like 401K plans and mutual funds, but I realized that in a couple of years I will need to take care of these things. Thanks to Dave’s classes, I know early on how to avoid debt. I won’t have to worry about mismanaging money because of what I’ve learned. - Allie

As long-time supporters of Mercy Ministries, Dave and his wife, Sharon, have generously donated their expertise and resources to all our residents. The girls learn how to balance a checkbook, make a budget, save, eliminate debt, find bargains, build wealth and experience the joy of giving.

Upon graduation, each resident is blessed with a Financial Peace University Lifetime Membership kit and receives all course materials. Graduates (along with their spouses if they are married) can also attend an FPU class in their area. Thanks to Dave and Sharon’s generosity, these young women continue to gain the practical knowledge they need to avoid financial hardship and experience abundance!

Mercy Ministries would like to thank the Ramsey’s for their overwhelming generosity and huge hearts! Their investment of time, expertise, materials, and financial resources in Mercy Ministries has literally been life-changing for our residents.
