Reporter: JULIAN AND

ROZ MARTIN STAYED BUSY WITH

TWO TODDLERS.

JULIAN WORKS AT A CEILING

FAN COMPANY, BUT WHEN HE IS

HOME, HE IS A HANDS-ON DAD.

AND ROZ IS A STAY-AT-HOME

MOM.

BOTH LOVE "THE 700 CLUB."

"THE 700 CLUB" GRABBED MY

ATTENTION BECAUSE I COULD

GET A LOT OF INFORMATION IN

ONE HOUR WITH TWO SMALL

CHILDREN.

Reporter: IT WAS ROZ

WHO INITIALLY SUGGESTED THEY

JOIN "THE 700 CLUB."

WHAT PROMPTED US TO BE

GIVERS TO "THE 700 CLUB" WAS

JUST THE DIFFERENT AREAS OF

IMPACT THAT "THE 700 CLUB"

HAS AROUND THE WORLD.

THEY JUST REALLY TOUCHED OUR

HEARTS.

THEY ARE DOING GREAT

WORK.

GOD IS USING THE LITTLE BIT

I CAN GIVE TO HELP OTHERS

AROUND THE WORLD.

Reporter: BUT A FEW

YEARS AGO, THE MARTINS

STRUGGLED WITH GIVING AWAY

MONEY.

THEY HAD ACCUMULATED NEARLY

$40,000 IN DEBT.

THEN THEY TOOK A CLASS ON

FINANCES.

IT JUST CAME TO A POINT

WHERE YOU START LOOKING AT

STUDENT LOANS, LOOKING AT

YOUR CAR NOTE, AND WE JUST

STARTED FOCUSING ON PAYING

THOSE THINGS OFF.

IF YOU PAY THE MINIMUM

BALANCE, YOU'RE GOING TO BE

THERE FOR A LONG TIME.

WE STARTED OFF BY PAYING

OUR SMALLEST DEBT FIRST, AND

THEN WE WOULD TAKE THAT

PAYMENT AND PUT IT ON THE

NEXT SMALLEST DEBT.

UNTIL WE GOT UP TO OUR

LARGEST DEBT.

WE CONTINUED TO ADD THE

DIFFERENT PAYMENTS ON TO

THAT SO WE WOULD ESSENTIALLY

BE DEBT-FREE OUTSIDE OF OUR

HOME.

Reporter: THEN THEY

WERE ABLE TO A AFFORD A NEW

HOME, ONE MUCH BIGGER THAN

THE ONE THEY HAD BEFORE THE

BOYS WERE BORN.

GOD CAN STRETCH YOUR

MONEY FURTHER THAN YOU COULD

EVER IMAGINE.

WHEN THE LORD SEES HOW

YOU VALUE YOUR MONEY, HE

KNOWS WHERE YOUR HEART IS.

THAT IS ONE AREA WHERE THE

LORD WILL HONOR YOU IF YOU

HONOR HIM.
