Nearly one and a half million families have been able to positively change their financial situation through Financial Peace University (FPU), the 13-week course taught by Dave Ramsey on DVD. FPU teaches families and individuals commonsense principles like how to make a plan with their money so they are able to free themselves of debt and build lasting wealth. FPU is available for churches, military, nonprofit agencies, and businesses. FPU will be held in Franklin at First Baptist Church located at 69 Iotla Street in Franklin. The classes will begin Thursday, Sept. 15, at 7 p.m. Contact Ed LaFlamm at (828)369-9559 for more information or to register.
