Dave has Answers to Your Money Questions!

Written by Dave Ramsey

Q.  My wife and I make $100,000 a year combined, and we have about $12,000 in credit card debt. We also owe another $80,000 in student loans, and our kids’ private school education costs $1,000 a month. Is it okay for me to take a loan against my 401(k), which is invested in mutual funds, to clean up the credit card bills?

Understanding Suicide

Written by Deborah S. Cowell

Someone once said that the only thing we can be sure about in life is change. Even though we work hard to maintain a stable and predictable way of life, some type of change always finds a way to throw us off balance. These changes for some are exhilarating, but for most of us we experience various levels of stress or anxiety.

Helped Up

Written by Bob Crittendon

The Olympic Games in Rio are now history, full of memorable moments and tremendous triumphs.  Perhaps one of the most memorable came in a 5,000 meter qualifying event in track and field.  American runner Abbey D’Agostino and New Zealander Nikki Hamblin tripped over one another on the track and both fell to the ground.

Aliens and Strangers

Written by Sam Whatley

In the Book of Exodus there are dozens of commandments. One that catches my attention is Exodus 22:21, “Do not mistreat an alien or oppress him for you were aliens in Egypt” (NIV).

The Most Important Win

Written by Dr. Larry Bryars

Autumn has always been my favorite season.  There are many reasons…the weather gets cooler, the leaves are changing, and it’s football season.  Already some of my favorite teams have won and lost, and we have only just begun.

Book Reviews

  • Like the Shepherd by Robert Wolgemuth

    The great challenge in marriage is not to love our wives more but to love ourselves less, for it is self-love that generates so much of the strife we experience. To be successful husbands we must continually put to death within us whatever causes us to prioritize ourselves, our own interests, our own comfort, our own good. To do this successfully we need counsel, we need men who can make us aware of our self-love and who can provide examples of selflessness.

Faith at Work

  • Judah and Samantha Helms

    RRJ:  You both had exposure to Jesus and His church as children, but you were still left wanting more.  What would you two say were the ingredients for your powerless (ho-hum) Christianity?

     

    Judah: Growing up in the South, I identified with Christianity as a part of my culture. Going to church was expected of you, just like it was expected that you be an obedient child and make good grades. For me, falling in line with those cultural expectations was my lone incentive to be a Christian. I didn’t want to be an outcast or generate any controversy around myself.
