Your book was given to us by the pastor who married us in September. He gave it to us as a gift after meeting us and learning about our goals and perceived challenges for our marriage. He said that if we could read the book (he promised it was a quick read & easy to digest & implement) and learn the techniques, that we would eliminate 90% of the arguments married couples have. My biggest fear going into marriage was money, not having enough of it, arguing about it and essentially letting it run our lives. Well, I read your book cover to cover one afternoon on my honeymoon in St. Lucia and vowed then and there to put into practice all I had learned from you.
I finally convinced my husband to do the same and we now are now investing 15% into our 401Ks, contributing more to our mortgage each month and building up an emergency fund (each week, we pay ourselves $50), and we’ve even learned to take out agreed upon funds at the beginning of each week for food and pocket money. We paid our credit cards off in full, cut them up and are sticking to spending only what we can afford in cash (paying by debit card only has assisted us with that greatly). Having a sensible plan that we know will work (!) has calmed us, given us confidence and made us much happier people. We have thanked “Pastor Jack” for his wonderful gift – we didn’t truly understand or appreciate it when it was first given, but now we realize that he was giving us incredibly powerful tools to create an automatic, worry-free future.
We feel happy and in control of our destiny. We have “paid it forward” too by giving the book to my brother as a gift so that he can join us in becoming smart, savvy automatic millionaires!
Thank you Pastor Jack & thank you David!!
