Why Now?

That’s a great question. Why now? Why now, after all these years, do we decide to get out of debt. Well, the short answer is that my wife went back to work. And for the first time in, forever, we actually have more money than month. Well, not really forever. Just since the first two years of our marriage. Now, we’re actually able to pay off debt. I suppose that’s the reason we’ve finally started now. Because we can.

This doesn’t mean that we couldn’t before. I think more than the extra money. It’s what the money has given us – HOPE. Andy Dufresne probably said it best: “Remember Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies.”

Hope is powerful. In terms of our faith, our debt had created a disconnect from our spiritual and practical hope. That is so disappointing. But now we have it back. And so now, armed with hope, we are ready to tackle this monster we’ve created head on.
