Dave Ramsey

Yes, Ryan and I drank the Kool-Aide! And it is so worth it. In 2007, Ryan and I (with the help of my sister) attended Financial Peace University at our church. We began to follow Dave Ramsey's baby steps to financial freedom. Since then, we are on a first name basis with Dave, and he is a friend in our head. We are not as intense as some, but this has changed the way we think about and spend money. It is fun to think of the possibilities we might have if we stay on the path we are on. We have already made great progress.

At the end of September, Dave came to South Bend to promote his new book EntreLeadership. Ryan and I took Lucy and stood in line for 1 hour and 40 minutes to get the book signed. We had a great time talking to the people around us while we weaved through the aisles at Barnes and Noble. Lucy was pretty quiet until we were about 10 feet from the table to get the book signed. Then she really started fussing and crying. I was attempting to get pictures of Ryan while holding her. It all happens very quickly once you get to the table so the pictures are not the best. It was exciting anyway.

Outside we stood in front of the tour bus.

Dave talking to the crowd before he began signing books.

Me with Dave (way) in the background.

Ryan talking with Dave and having him sign our book.

Another fun Dave fact is that my sister's BFF Angie's dad looks just like him! Here is the picture I too
k of their family photo to show Ryan after we visited them in Oklahoma a couple of years ago. :)
