Jerry Johnson: Have financial peace

Published 5:48 pm Tuesday, January 31, 2017


Financial Peace University, have you been? Are you living from paycheck to paycheck? Does  your check not last the entire month for you? Do you borrow money from your friends and  relatives? The old joke goes, “If you lend your brother-in-law $50 and he never talks to you  again, was it worth the investment? If someone is in genuine need, it’s great to help. If you help with money, make it a gift instead of a loan. A loan has a way of hanging over the head of both  the lender and the borrower. There’s a fog in the air every time you see that other person. It’s a  fog that will only be cleared when the debt is repaid. Your Christmas dinner always tastes better  if on one side you have people not in debt to the people across the table.

We will talk about all these types of problems. Trust me, other people have worked their way out of debt before also. They do not teach this at home, they do not teach this at school, people do not talk about handling money until they are drowning in debt. You say, “But Jerry, I am a free spirit. Well, friend, are you a broke free spirit? This class is to teach people to have a plan for making their money work for them. We will talk about all the little things that add up to big things over time!

Please come join us starting Feb 15th for nine weeks. Classes will last 90 minutes and I will be your teacher. The cost is $93, so call Deb Yates at 706-302-0674 to save your seat and to get information on how to get the materials and book needed for this course. This could be your turn around to making your money last all month.
