This is a re-post from my Gerken Getaways site. I thought it would also be helpful here. In the year that I have been back in the travel industry, I have heard many accounts of people needing insurance for their trips. Many of these experiences are based on health reasons, but not all. When we were in France last year on a tour, one couple had flown from Spain to France. Unfortunately, their luggage did not. The wife's luggage was found, but it missed us at almost every stop. We were heading south and if the luggage did not reach us, it was sent back to Paris. Eventually, the luggage was sent back to the states and she retrieved it there. As far as I know, the husband’s luggage is still undiscovered. In this case, insurance would have paid for them to purchase new clothes instead of wearing the same clothes, nightly washing in the sink, for two weeks. They did break down and purchase a few things after it was obvious that the luggage was not coming. Not everyone may need … [Read More...]

The wall is not very high, but the foundation that it provides for the garden is a necessity. In our personal finance lives, we also need a foundation. If you have these necessities, you will be able to function … [Read More...]
"Kathryn and Tim have helped me in ways I didn't realize I needed help. They helped me look at my budget and prioritize the 4 walls and decide what was above the line and what was below the line. I took the online course and was not able to get the part that "$ is amoral-neither good or bad." So when it came to money and budgeting through situations, I did not see myself with any choices or power … [Read More...]
Tim and Kathryn have given us many tools to get our finances under control. The envelope system has been a lifesaver, and we found we needed to move certain expenses into the “envelope” when the debit card became too easy to use and we overshot our planned spending amounts. We also participated in Dave Ramsey's 13 week Financial Peace course at our church, and found it immensely helpful and … [Read More...]
