Bob desires to help others escape living paycheck to paycheck, and writes for his own blog over at More Money Than Month.
Bob has a story like many of us. For years he lived like the “average American” who lived paycheck to paycheck and really never had any savings to speak of until he came across the teachings of Dave Ramsey and Crown Financial Ministries. In March of 2009 he paid off his last debt except for his home, and feels newfound freedom with more money in the bank.
Bob is a Christian who believes that the Bible is “packed with practical wisdom from God regarding how to handle our finances.” We couldn’t agree more!
