Want control over your finances? A dedicated group of Mercy Health Saint Mary’s colleagues answered “Yes!” and began a nine-week class that could lead to a lifetime of financial wellness, known as Financial Peace University. Congratulations to our summer 2015 graduates (from left to right):
- Kim Kelly
- Alicia Martinez
- Adrian Munguia
- Elizabeth Bertacchi
Some success stories from the class:
“This was an awakening for me. I was forced to take some responsibility. Paying the bills wasn’t my thing before, but now this has opened up communication between my spouse and me.”
“The title of this class rings true for me – this class brought me peace. Budgeting really helped me out…. I know I have enough money to pay my bills. Everything is paid for and I feel great.”
The third cohort at Mercy Health Saint Mary’s collectively paid off $7,031 in a mere nine weeks’ time and also managed to save $9,200! They also cut up ten credit cards!
As an ongoing tally, combined, all three cohorts of Mercy Health Saint Mary’s have:
Paid off non-mortgage debt of $71,720.49
Cut up more than 110 credit cards! The groups accomplish these stats during the nine weeks of the course.
Based on the teachings of Dave Ramsey, Financial Peace University is provided at no cost to colleagues who commit to attending seven out of nine classes.
