We were introduced to Howard Dayton’s Bible study in our 30’s and his True Financial Freedom challenge really resonated with us- being free to go wherever the Lord directed us, without having to draw a salary! So, we began the steady plodding journey.
Our first goal was to pay off our mortgage- and with the Lord’s help we were able to accomplish this goal and be debt free! We resisted the desire to increase our lifestyle as raises and bonus’ came in, and instead focused on eliminating this monster-sized debt! As the Lord continued to provide for us during this goal, we continued to increase our giving and savings with the idea of one day experiencing true financial freedom.
We continued to be faithful towards this goal, and when we reached our mid- 50’s, the Lord had provided to the point where we could retire early. Through the Lord’s provision and our faithful steady plodding, we are now serving in full-time ministry without the need for a salary- answering the call the Lord put on our heart 25 years ago! – Dan & Lynn
