Financial Peace University, a course on budgeting, relationships and money, getting out of debt, saving for emergencies and investing, is being offered in January at Brentwood Baptist Church and Judson Baptist Church in Brentwood.
According to an announcement of the classes from Ramsey Solutions, more than 5 million people have positively changed their financial future through Financial Peace University (FPU). Created by financial expert Dave Ramsey, a Franklin resident whose nationally syndicated radio program offers advice on getting out of debt and staying ut of debt, the nine-lesson digital course provides families and individuals with practical tools to gain control of their finances and set themselves up for long-term financial success. FPU will be held in Brentwood at:
- Brentwood Baptist Church located at 7777 Concord Road in Brentwood. The classes will begin Tuesday, January 22, 2019 at 6:30 PM. Go to www.fpu.com/1080050 for more information or to register.
- Judson Baptist located at 4900 Franklin Road in Brentwood. The classes will begin Thursday, January 24, 2019 at 6:00 PM. Go to www.fpu.com/1081170 for more information or to register.
Through common-sense principles, FPU gives people the tools they need to change their behavior and succeed financially. Dave Ramsey teaches lessons along with Ramsey personalities Rachel Cruze and Chris Hogan. 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 those 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 in a press release announcing the courses. “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.”
An FPU membership includes immediate access to newly revised online video lessons, financial coaching assistance, digital tools and a one-year subscription to the EveryDollar Plus budgeting tool. Also included is access to Legacy Journey and Smart Money Smart Kids courses. Legacy Journey walks families and individuals through what to do once they have control of their finances and helps them navigate their way through building wealth. Smart Money Smart Kids helps parents teach their children to make wise financial decisions.
