This idea of a big trip seems so fun. And adventurous. And exciting. And at times crazy…irresponsible.
We are grown adults and have the added responsibility of 4 kiddos, we totally get that we have to make sure some things are taken care of before we just take off traipsing around the country.
Knowing we have financial responsibilities, we decided to take our church’s upcoming Financial Peace University class from Dave Ramsey. Aside from setting up our savings (which we did), we also paid off a good chunk of our debt.
And then cut up those cards.
If we are going to live on the road and travel for a while, we are going to do so – debt free. So we will continue to pay off that debt until it is gone. God does not desire for us to borrow from anyone just for us to do his work. I am pretty sure if we have to borrow, then it isn’t what we are called to do. With that thought we will continue to live responsibly with any money God has given us, trip or no trip.
