PERSONAL FINANCE: COURSE DESCRIPTION

Personal Finance is one of the most important, yet least understood topics for high school students. This is a DVD-based course produced by Dave Ramsey - “Foundations in Personal Finance for Homeschool”. The course workbook says, “The Bible tells us that we are stewards of God's resources. By definition, a steward is not an owner, but a manager - someone who takes care of the possessions of someone else. When we believe that God is the owner of all we have, we gain a new perspective on the way we handle the resources we have been given. When you choose to handle money God's ways, things that used to be difficult will become easier. Budgeting, compromising, saving, giving, sacrificing, making wiser decisions with your money - all of it will become clearer.”




There are no tests or grades in this course. We will have a short discussion each week, watch the DVD's, and complete assignments in the course workbook. We'll cover a wide range of topics including saving, budgeting, debt, investing, insurance, taxes, bargain shopping, and much more!
