Previous Class Reviews:

“This class was really helpful for me to get a better understanding of financial stewardship, setting good goals and being confident in my next steps!”

“Thank you all for this awesome opportunity.  I have wanted to do FPU for some time, and this price and time frame made it totally doable. I am not (yet) the poster child for the program, but I have learned so much and am determined to see this through.” 

“I am so grateful for the group leaders’ attitudes of acceptance and cheering us on to success, celebrating any and every progress!”

“I am amazed how much learning and/or being reminded of a few simple truths can so impact one’s life.  That is what we have experienced in taking the FPU classes.  We have learned tools that we are implementing that have given us more freedom and hope for our futures and for the futures of our children.” 

“God bless all the coaches for a job EXTREMELY well done!”
