Steps to move from Normal to Better Financially

Based on the message from January 15, 2017 at Grace – here are the steps I recommended for you to take over the next 40 days…

Decide today – You want Better not Normal 

For the next 40 days

  • write down EVERY PENNY you spend
  • buy only what you need (no more debt)
  • evaluate the outcome on Feb. 25

Don’t read any sales papers or flyers

Get radical about paying off debt

Find and use online tools from Dave Ramsey or Crown.org

Attend our Growth Class that begins in February:  I Was Broke And Now I’m Not

Set an initial goal for percentage living

Spend time reading what scripture says about this.

The first passage to read and reflect on will be on this blog tomorrow (Monday, January 16). The others will follow for the next 40 days.

PRAY & ask God to help you stay on track
