Huge Weight Off Our Shoulders/Prayer Request Answered

Hallelujah!! Bobby started his first night as a Supervisor at UPS. This has been on our list of prayer requests for a long time. It means a bit more work, a lot more pay, and 4K per year towards Asbury Seminary, which means no more loans and taking longer to go to school. God has really pressed it upon Bobby's heart to get out of debt. We probably have less debt than the average family, but any is a lot to him. We have over 10K left from me at IWU, 18K so far with Bobby's IWU in deferment and the first 2 years at Asbury, and about 7K left on our car.
With this promotion, we will finally be able to save (we're been eating at our savings a bit because the teacher pay rate in Kentucky is lower than Indiana), and we will be able to aggressively pay on our debt. Praise the Lord!!
Thank you to all who have been praying for us and this situation.

God answers prayers! It sounds like you are making a concerted effort to be good stewards of your money!

I was just in Wilmore for Ichthus with the youth group and it was a blast!

Congratulations you guys! Way to go Bobby! I just love how God comes through when you need him most. :) Don't stress too much about the school loans school loans are MUCH scarier! hehe If you've got low interest rates on your school loans, think about investing your extra money and paying the school loans down at the normal rate--you'll make more in interest on the stock market (if you invest wisely) than you will save by paying school loans off quickly, plus the earlier in life you start investing, the more money you'll make in the long run...much more. Then think of all the ways you'll be able to bless others. Again, congrats on the promotion.
