We're debt free!...almost

As of January 11, 2006, we were $25,047.93 in debt (not including the mortgage on our house.) My salary, the only source of income, was around $40-45k. My wife got introduced to Dave Ramsey, a Christian financial advisor and talk radio host, a couple of years ago. At that time we were motivated to get out of debt, and began to set aside money each month to do just that.

After the sale of our house in Rochester last month, we were finally able to finish paying off our remaining school and consumer debt. It's taken some sacrifice, but the weight off our backs is certainly worth it.

So we thank God we've got no more debt, except for this:

"Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another, for he who loves his fellowman has fulfilled the law" (Romans 13:8).
