I was pleased to attend the final Financial Peace University session last month for the inaugural class.
The energy in the room, the smiles on the faces of the attendees indicated to me how much they enjoyed the material, making new friends, and, most importantly, being on the road to financial independence! I wish to thank the committee who spearheaded this effort: Marifran and Bill Dirkes, Marcia Neumann, Mike Dailey, Jaime Neumann, and John Sherman. These parishioners, along with members of my staff, were instrumental in bringing the Dave Ramsay program to the parish. Special thanks goes to Marifran, who facilitated nearly every session over the past two months. I received an email that, I would surmise, summed up the class‟ feelings toward Marifran. “Just wanted to let you know how appreciative the FPU attendees were of Marifran ... they couldn’t thank her enough for facilitating the class. She led the class with grace, always being gentle, loving and kind.” Our next two classes (starting in January and March 2014, respectively) are full and have waiting lists.
