Inspiration to Pay Off Debt: 30 Days of Encouragement from the Queen of Free - Cherie Lowe

I first heard Cherie Lowe, the Queen of Free, speak two years ago at my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group. Cherie gave some practical tips, introduced many of us to Pinterest, and gave me a lot to think about in terms of our financial situation. I'd read some of the Dave Ramsey books already but hearing the story of a family so similar to my own in a direct fashion made an impact. I would love to say that I came home and quickly got to work reducing our spending and knocking out our debt but sadly that was not the case. I think progress has been made and we are moving in the right direction but there is certainly more work to be done.

In her new book, Inspiration to Pay Off Debt: 30 Days of Encouragement from the Queen of Free, Cherie Lowe continues to share her family's story of paying off over $127,000 in debt. Written in sections to be read one a day for thirty days, Cherie doesn't talk about the nuts and bolts of how the debt was paid but instead offers some of the lessons that she has learned throughout the process. This really is what Cherie would say to you if she could sit down with you at your house. It is personal and heartfelt while tackling the tough realities of an emotionally charged topic.

The only real formula for paying off debt is to spend less each month than you earn. It sounds so simple but can be so difficult to put into practice because it means saying "no" to what we have gotten used to having or to what society has taught us we should have. Cherie understands how difficult it is to look at each potential purchase and classify it as a true need or want. She encourages strength through her own stories but also through Bible verses. In talking so openly about her family's journey to pay off their debt while they were in the process and now that they have achieved financial freedom, Cherie Lowe provides an abundance of inspiration and encouragement to those wanting to get out of debt no matter where they are in the journey.
