Life before we were led to Carey was stressful. There was always the desire to get out of debt but there was also the fear that it might never happen. We knew we were doing things counterproductive to our desire, like using credit cards, but we didn’t see any other way.
Working with Carey has been tremendous for us. He is always there to listen and offer perspective but never to judge. He has been accountability for us and a neutral third party that we can talk through decisions with. Early on he encouraged us to take the step of faith and stop using our credit cards, to trust God that He would provide. The way in which Carey described that trust was so empowering to our faith. To fully turn it over to God and trust Him was freeing.
While we aren’t void of stress, there is a peace about our finances now. We continue to meet with Carey and talk with him about our budget. We have not used a credit card since January and to see those debt numbers going down each month knowing nothing new is being added to them is such an amazing feeling. It’s a day by day process and it won’t be accomplished overnight, but we now have the belief that we will be debt free. With Carey’s help and guidance we are now on such a better path. He has been a tremendous blessing to us.
