It seems the more we earn, the more we spend. There is always something new to buy, a service we want or an upgrade that is an absolute must-have. We see our neighbor’s new boat. Now, something inside of us “needs” that new boat too! And even if our income isn’t enough to buy it, well that doesn’t stop most of us. We’ll just borrow, put it on credit and go into massive debt trying to maintain a lifestyle that we simply can’t afford.

It’s so exciting to talk and work with couples who are committing themselves to getting rid of debt from their lives.
