Knock Out That $30,000 Debt

If the “good life” is owning a beach house in California, Mike and Vivi Anderson are living it. Before that, the only waves they saw came from an ocean of credit card debt -– $30,000 worth. But one tool they implemented early on in ... Read Transcript


IN ALL THE YEARS OF THEIR

MARRIAGE THEY HAVE BEEN

GENEROUS

EVEN IN THE DIFFICULT OF TIMES.

I NEVER STOPPED TITHING AND

IT BELONGS TO GOD AND GOD WILL

TAKE CARE OF ME.

2012 BROUGHT CHALLENGES.

MIKE STEPPED DOWN BECAUSE OF A

JOB IN THE FOOD INDUSTRY AND

THE

LACK OF HOURS WERE TAKING TOLL

ON HIS HEALTH.

I AM GETTING ALONG IN MY

YEARS

HERE.

HE TOOK A JOB WITH HALF OF

THE HOURS.

I WAS OKAY WITH THAT AND I

WAS ON CALL AS A CONSULTANT.

THE ANDERSONS WERE CARRYING

$30,000 IN DEBT AND NEVER

HADDAGE EMERGENCY ACCOUNT SO

EVERYTHING WENT ON CREDIT.

WE WEREN'T PAYING THEM OFF

AND WE WERE GIVING MORE TO GOD.

THE ANDERSONS WERE ALREADY

MEMBERS OF "THE 700 CLUB" AND

DECIDED TO INCREASE THEIR

GIVING. SHE SAW A STORY ABOUT

AN 85 YEAR OLD COUPLE THAT LOST

EVERYTHING FROM HURRICANE SANDY

AND CBN REBUILT THEIR HOME.

THEY SAW THE COUPLE WALKING

IN THE FIRST TIME AND AMAZED.

IT TOUCHED MY HEART SO THAT DAY

I CHANGED TO PLEDGE EXPRESS AND

INCREASED TO $100. ALL OF A

SUDDEN I WAS GETTING MORE WORK

WHERE I WAS MAKING MORE THAN

BEFORE AND WE'RE EVEN.

THEN THEY DECIDED TO TAKE

ANOTHER STEP OF FAITH. THEY

INCREASED THE PLEDGE TO CBN

AGAIN. SHE HEARD GORDON TALK

CREATIVE IDEAS.

GORDON WAS TALKING WHEN YOU

GIVE TO GOD AND IT'S NOT JUST

PAYCHECKS BUT CREATIVE IDEAS.

SO WHEN SHE DISCOVERED THAT

THE LIFE INSURANCE POLICY WAS

GOING TO INCREASE AND CASHED IT

IN AND BOUGHT A TERM LIFE

INSURANCE POLICY AND MADE A

$25,000 PROFIT.

WE TOOK A CHUNK OF MONEY OFF

AND PAID OFF THE CREDIT CARDS

AND THE CAR AND NOW WE HAVE

LIFE

INSURANCE AND SAME AMOUNT AND

IT'S NOT THAT MUCH MORE.

TODAY THEY'RE LIVING THEIR

DREAM IN THEIR WEST COAST BEACH

HOUSE.

THE BIBLE SAID IF YOU

DELIGHT

YOURSELF IN THE LORD HE WILL

GIVE YOU THE DESIRES OF YOUR

HEART. WE DIDN'T MAKE IT

HAPPEN. WE FOLLOWED GOD AND HE

MADE IT HAPPEN. WE'RE BLESSED.
