Testimonies From Survey Participants

I have done the course twice. I found the course to be very helpful and would recommend it. We all need the guidelines from the Lord.

Prior to the Crown study I had to deal with…$7,000 debt. Now, four years on, my wife and I have saved $17,000 in seven months and made our first investment, having no debt in the world! Glory to God.

The course radically changed our lives. Financially, we were struggling and that changed almost immediately when we started giving regularly. We were blessed with friendships that still endure.

We have been very blessed in our business and now tithe for the business. This has resulted in a healthier business as well, and it is really interesting to see God’s hand of blessing in this area.

We have paid off 60 percent of our credit card and are paying off the stove we had to buy on no interest terms with regular payments to avoid interest later. Our main earner has had a minimal pay increase in the last five years, so things are very tight. It is thanks to some of the principles and practices that we are not in a lot more debt. Thanks.
