Giveaway: Foundations in Personal Finance (Homeschool Edition)

Remember last week when I posted my review of Dave Ramsey’s awesome new financial course for homeschoolers? No? If you missed it, go check it out! I’ll wait. Need a highlight? I made the boldest statement I’ve ever made about any product I’ve ever reviewed:

I don’t think any American high school student should graduate without completing this course.

Some of you were very disappointed that there wasn’t a giveaway to go with that review. Well, guess what? Now there is!

    We are huge DR fans and hope to instill good financial values to our children.  We would love to win this giveaway.

    My husband and I took Financial Peace University years ago and we kept saying, "If only we had known this stuff 10 years ago!" I hope my children would learn the importance of not going into debt. Also, that cash is best!!!

  3. Txpatels says

    I'm always looking for ways to teach my sons the correct way to honor God with their money.  I pray they never find comfort in money, and that they are responsible with what God gives them and always have a heart for sharing with others and giving to God.

  4. Kimberly says

    I have learned so much from Dave Ramsey. My hope is that my children can learn in grade school and middle school the information that I did not  learn until my 30's!!

  5. Seastar says

    Dave Ramsey is a favorite around here.  I don't have a high schooler yet, but will in a short time.  I would love for my kids to have a better understanding of how money works than I did. My parents sent me off to college with a brand new credit card and years of their example at frugal living but I didn't know what a mutual fund or a money market were or any idea about how to save and use my savings to make money. I want my kids to be a little more prepared than I was when I left home.

    Oh! Yes, please!
    I'd hope my children would gain a proper perspective on money in general, and specifically on spending, saving, and giving!

  7. meclarks says

    I would hope they would gain a Biblical perspective on how to manage the financial resources God has given to them! Hopefully it could give them the financial wisdom I did not grow up with- and they could start their adulthood with less "stupid tax" than I did!

  8. Dana Cockrum says

    Enter us in the giveaway!  Financial smarts are such a necessity!  Decisions made regarding money can truly make or break a family.  I hope to teach my children the importance of using money wisely.

  9. Jennifer N. says

    I want my kids to be much wiser about money much younger.  There's no need for them to go into debt young, and I want them to know it. Thanks for sharing.  This is a valuable resource, whether we win or buy it.

  10. Beach Mama says

    I would like my children to have a better understanding of handling finances than I did when I first started out on my own.

  11. Idigpotatoes says

    after balancing the checkbook this morning and then having to tell my kids we cant afford some of the events we had planned, i think my kids would benefit from having a sound financial education before i send them off in to the world.

  12. Molly says

    My husband and I are currently taking the 13 week course Financial Peace University at a local church. We have found ourselves in trouble financially and if only we knew back in high school what we are leaning now, it would have made a huge difference. So that is why I would love to win the Homeschool version for my kids. Thanks for the opportunity. Molly (mollyvosen@gmail.com)

  13. Shonya says

    Oh wow, I want this so bad I am almost drooling! LOL  I would love to do this course with my 15yod and 14 yos because I want *them* to control their money rather than it controlling them, I want them to use cash, I want them to avoid credit cards, I want them to have designated savings. . .you know, ALL the stuff he teaches! chuckle  And bummer, I don't twitter (blogging and FB consume enough time alone!) so I guess I'll have to skip that entry! :)

  14. Jennifer Story says

    What a great giveaway! My kids are a little young but it's definitely a resource we'd use in the next few years. I want them to learn more than anything that the financial resources they have are from God so we need His wisdom to know how best to manage them.

  15. Ann says

    I want my kids to know how debt affects your life.  My husband and I learned the hard way, and I want our kids to know that if you can't afford it, you shouldn't buy it.

  16. Lisa says

    It is our prayer for our children that they would learn the Godly principles of handling their finances to avoid some of the mistakes that we've made!

  17. Childrenfirstei says

    I would love to have this so my kids could learn that the money tree they think we have does not exist in reality!  My hubby and I have taken Dave's course and have found it so helpful!

  18. Kellie says

    We just started our total money makeover in February and it has been one of the best things we've ever done.  I would love to help our children start their adult lives this way, rather than having to figure it out the hard way later on.

  19. Tracey says

    We have just started the baby steps for our own family. We are very lucky to just have car and house debt, but I can imagine how much worse it could be if we made different decisions. I hope my kids can learn to save for things so they can start out right (and with a leg up!). Thanks!

  20. Gwen T says

    To be wise stewards with what God blesses them with (and not to make the same foolish mistakes their parents had to learn from!)

  21. SAMANTHA K says

    I think it is very important that in addition to the higher math courses, each of my children has sold, biblical training in money management during their high school years.  I am planning to use this curriculum and hope that I win so I don't have to purchase it!

  22. Diane says

    Good gravy, we need this.  If we don't win it, we'll end up buying it eventually.  My six kids need this because, well, they're human and because they have even more human parents.  They've watched us mess up over and over again, learning the hard way.  I'd love to be able for them to skip over at least some mistakes.  I have one of DR's adult books and know he'd have a great program for kids!

  23. Pepper Dill says

    I'd love to have this onhand for my kids. My husband and I are working through Financial Peace University now and learning tremendous new strategies for managing our finances.

  24. Natalie says

    I'd love to win this set!  I'd hope my kids would learn the value of avoiding debt and how to keep themselves debt-free.

    Natalie

  25. Melanie says

    I hope this is not a duplicate comment….but I hope that my kids learn from words, not experience as far as money mistakes go!
