NASHVILLE — More than 2 million families have positively changed their financial future through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University.

Beginning April 2, Westwood Baptist Church will hold classes beginning at 6:15 p.m. through FPU.

The nine-week course provides families and individuals with practical tools to gain control of their finances and set themselves up for long-term financial success.

The course meets once a week where a different lesson is taught by Dave on DVD followed by a small-group discussion. Lessons include budgeting, relationships and money, getting out of debt, saving for emergencies and investing.

Westwood Baptist Church is located at 4001 Georgetown Road N.W.

Contact Steven Smartt at 472-1534 to register.

Through common-sense principles and small-group accountability, FPU gives people the tools they need to change their behavior and succeed financially.

On average families who complete FPU pay off $5,300 and save $2,700 in the first 90 days. Following the class nearly 94 percent of those families budget regularly.

“FPU will not only transform the way you handle money, but also your marriage and other areas of your life,” says Ramsey. “This isn’t a boring financial class. We make learning about money fun and easy to understand, so people in every situation can benefit from the information.”

Ramsey knows first hand the pain that financial stress can cause. After creating a net worth of more than $1 million by age 26, he quickly lost it all.

Since then Ramsey has helped families and individuals across the country learn how to get control of their finances and avoid debt so they don’t have to experience the same pain he did.

FPU lessons also include guest speakers Rachel Cruze, speaker and daughter of Dave Ramsey, and Chris Hogan, counselor and speaker for the Dave Ramsey organization.

“Dave Ramsey’s Complete Guide to Money,” an envelope system and an audio CD library will be made available. Participants will also have access to budgeting forms and MP3s of all the lessons.
