Testimonials

"When I first started the Faith & Finance class, I was a little skeptical about it, but as I kept attending, I found it to become more interesting. The information taught in the class has been very helpful and gave me information and knowledge about my spending habits. The class taught me how to set short and long term saving goals.  I also learn how to live life simple. I now have the tools I need to manage my money better and put money aside for emergency. I would definitely recommend this Faith & Finance class to anyone who is struggling to save their money and use it efficiently."   Tamara B.
