Eighteen months ago, my husband and I decided that it was time for me to give up my part-time job so I could fulfill my dream to stay home and completely commit myself to my family. We purchased The Total Money Makeover so we could build a family budget for the first time.

It initially was difficult and several times we thought Dave was crazy, but we very quickly discovered that adopting Dave's principles made so much sense. It gave me such a sense of comfort knowing that we could comfortably afford to lose my income if we made some sacrifices. I cannot even begin to tell you how Dave's principles have impacted our whole family and made such an amazing difference in our lives.

It really hit home a couple months ago when my five-year old asked me if there was any money in our restaurant envelope for us to go out to dinner. When I told her no, she simply said, "Well, I guess we will have to wait until we fill them up again next month."

In a nutshell, our Total Money Makeover has become only a little about money and so much more about building a better life for all of us. Thank you for helping us to do this!
