We are fired up to report that as of March 2nd, 2017, the Melton family arrived at their independence day! We wrote our last checks to get out of debt and we are now 100% out of the Financial Matrix. We are so excited about that! We got our hands on the Financial Fitness Program last March and over the last 12 months we’ve paid off over $45,000 of debt and we recovered $1,200 a month that was going out into the matrix to pay off the debts we had. That $1,200 a month now can be used towards furthering our family’s future, our purpose, and the Kingdom of God.
My husband DJ and I really started applying the principles of the Financial Fitness
Program in November of 2014. We started our debt snowball by selling a costly truck
and purchasing an old van for cash and applying that payment to the snowball. Then,
we decided to ramp things up and we sold a rental home and a duplex that we owned.
Using the equity from that, we paid off about $230,000 worth of debt and have the
lowest monthly expenses we have ever had in our marriage. We also have two months
of expenses saved up. Unfortunately, we still have a student loan and a credit card left, but with the
money and knowledge we now have, those debts will be gone before we know it!!
