My name is Susan Jaroszewski, and I am excited and ready to teach a new generation of young adults how to manage money according to Biblical principles. I have listened to Dave Ramsey for years, and believe that his views on Biblical financial stewardship: working hard, tithing, giving, and saving are the basic principles our children must learn now. I am striving to instill these principles in my children’s lives, and am looking forward to teaching them to other students in the community. Proverbs 22:6, “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” I believe this applies to money management as well. I have been a teacher with CPC / Kids of Faith for the last 6 years, teaching art classes, and I am looking forward to teaching Money Management by Dave Ramsey. It is an exciting and high quality course.
