Bye Bye Student Loan

After working for just over a year, we are so glad to have paid off our student loan. One of the main financial goals we set for ourselves was to eliminate this debt as soon as we could.

When meeting with a financial planner early in our marriage, we wanted to handle our finances in a Biblical manner. We know that scripture states: "The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender" Proverbs 22:7. We wanted to stop being slaves to Sallie Mae who took most of our expendable income for the first 15 months of our marriage.

We have listened to many radio shows and podcasts by Dave Ramsey, and we are huge fans of his ideals. As he says, we've kicked Sallie Mae out of our house, and we now have more financial freedom.
