From debt to prosperity     Send a link to a friend

[MARCH 4, 2006]  EMDEN -- Tired of struggling with money issues? Have you ever...

  • Bounced a check?

  • Had a fight with your spouse over money?

  • Had to decide which bills to pay because you couldn't pay them all?

  • Lost sleep worrying about money?

Or, would you just like to learn how to manage your money better?

Gary Edwards, vice president of stewardship at Lincoln Christian College, has helped thousands to get their financial lives in order. He will lead a free seminar that is entertaining, motivating and life-changing and can bring an end to worrying about money. He will provide seven basic principles that lead to financial success and a practical five-step plan that can have most people debt-free within 10 years -- including their mortgage. You will learn to escape the bondage of debt, which will result in happier family relationships. This seminar can change your life and give you the confidence to face the future.

The seminar will be presented at Emden Christian Church on April 8 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Lunch will be provided.
