How Well Did I Do Financially In 2015?

Just a quick update for you.

I've tallied up the balances from January 1st, 2014 and compared it to today.

Drum roll please...

Last year I paid $12,127.95 towards debt.

I still owe:  $10,334.20

That's right, I now owe less than what I paid in debt last year.

It's getting close, and it's getting exciting!

I'm just praying really hard for things to continue to go this well.  

Many thanks to Heavenly Father, Jesus Christ and my wonderful friends who continue to stick with me.

Happy New Year!

Rather than randomly picking books this year, I thought I would make a list of books I want to read or re-read, and in the order I want to read them.  This doesn't mean there will be changes to this list, and if I finish this list before the years end, I may choose some books I've had on my bookshelf but haven't read yet.
