We got invited to a party...an In-Dept-Indence Day party. How very fitting.
Some friends of ours drank the kool-aid and decided to live radically...and get out of debt. Today they mailed their final payment to Sally-Mae. Shortly thereafter, they gave us a call and suggested we hold the phone back so they could scream, "WE'RE DEBT FREEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!" and then they drove past our house screaming, "FREEEEEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Pretty stinkin' cool.
Have you heard of Dave Ramsey? He teaches a radical concept...live on less than you make. It's Biblical and sound. We got "on board" several years ago and it has been life changing. Hard, but so good. Marriage changing. Hands down, AWESOME. We love Dave. (And one day, Lord willing, we're going to have a mortgage burning party. One day.)
