Simpson County Literacy Center offers FPU class to community



The Simpson County Literacy Center is offering Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace University every Tuesday night starting at 5:30 p.m. on Sept. 10.

"It really does give you the tools that you need to manage your money and to make your money work," said Sally Maloney, executive director of the Simpson County Literacy Center.

The class will last for nine weeks and will be lead by a volunteer. Maloney said it is a video based class with discussions before and after.

"You can share as much or as little, as vague or as specific about your own situation as you want to

be, nobody is going to force you," she said.

The class is great for couples or singles, since the classes have a built in accountability. The class talks about each one of the seven baby steps taught by Dave Ramsey.

Maloney said her family has been using the principles for a while since taking the FPU class and it has really worked well for them.

There is a kit that is needed for the class that can be bought directly from the financial peace university website. The price for the kit is around $100.

Maloney said if people are still on the fence about spending the money on the kit to come to the first class anyway just to get an idea for what it is like. She also said if people's kit has not arrived by the first class to come anyway.

"We have all spent $100 on things that will not have nearly the impact on our lives that the financial peace class would," Maloney said.

Present age needs more literacy rate in worldwide comparison. Every country tries their best to bring it up in the field of education. I have checked site and found it very helpful in study. because education is light which help the people to find their life seems to be a good effort.
