Life Fellowship offers Dave Ramsey financial course

DAVIDSON – New York Times best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio show host Dave Ramsey is introducing a new program, The Legacy Journey, which will be taught at Life Fellowship Church.

A follow-up to Financial Peace University, The Legacy Journey is a seven-week course taught on DVD by Ramsey, which shows families and individuals what to do once they have control of their finances.

The course helps people navigate their way through building wealth to leave a lasting legacy.

Ramsey has authored four New York Times best-selling books: “Financial Peace,” “More Than Enough,” “The Total Money Makeover” and “EntreLeadership.”

"The Dave Ramsey Show" is heard by more than 6 million listeners each week on more than 500 radio stations and The Dave Ramsey Channel on iHeart Radio.

“To leave a legacy behind, you have to live a legacy now,” Ramsey said. “The Legacy Journey equips you with the tools for managing your resources wisely and living a generous life.”

Each week a different lesson is taught, followed by small group discussion that helps lead class members through the program.

Topics include debunking myths about wealth and stewardship, investing wisely, contentment, living with a purpose, leaving a legacy, estate planning and generational wealth.

The Legacy Journey classes will begin at 9:30 a.m. Jan. 12, at Life Fellowship, located at Community School of Davidson at 565 Griffith St. Register in advance.
