After going through a Compass study, we made a commitment to live our lives debt free. We thought there could be challenges, especially after our first two children were born 13 months apart. Due to God’s provision, and our faithful budgeting, Pam was able to fulfill her calling to be a stay at home mom and we were able to keep our debt free commitment.
As the kids got older, our goal was to have Pam go back to work full-time to help fund the kid’s college education, but the Lord had different plans! In our mid-forties, we found out we were expecting a third child! Our plans changed.
Pam continued our commitment of being at home with our new child, but we had no idea how we were going to be able to fund the kid’s education. We decided we would save as much as possible, and trust God to do the rest. It turned out to be a great plan.
God provided in miraculous ways- scholarships and provision of wonderful campus jobs for our kids were just the start. In the end, both kids received 4-year degrees (one even got their Master’s degree) without a penny of debt! What appeared impossible to us, was possible with God as we trusted Him and applied His biblical principles in our life! -Brian & Pam
