Quiet the voices when paying down your debt!

I was reminded at the end of April that sometimes you have to quiet the voices when paying down your debt!

I started last Saturday morning with the Son of God DVD. Each morning I am trying to live my life with more purpose. I want to intentional learn about my religion and to make time for God.
