Money and Marriage – Debt Free Journey
Murphy and Melissa Stewart from FitnFunds.com Started their financial journey in the Fall 2013. Today they are debt free after paying off $229,000 of debt.
It sounds great, but they were in a toxic marriage and their marriage was falling apart in every which way. Murphy found the Dave Ramsey program and shared this with Melissa and it took a little time for her to get on board.
When trying to get out of debt you are dealing with denial and not being aware of what kind of debt you have. Melissa and Murphy had Medical, IRS, credit card, student loans, car payment, lines of credit.
Murphy was a good sales man and because of his love and persistence they both got on the same page and started to have weekly budget meetings. They also credit God and the ability that they can tithe 10% to their church is what supplied them with the blessings they needed.
They currently host a financial marriage class, and it is perfect because it allows them to share their story, tools and it connects them to all those in attendance.
The biggest change was figuring out their why.
“Don’t let your past supersede your future” – Murphy
Their future plan is to be be millionaires in less than 10 years, have kids (soon), build wealth and help other people change lives.
