"My marriage had separated, and my two boys were living with their mum. I wasn’t great at keeping track of my money. Financially everything seemed okay until the builder for an investment property I had went bankrupt. After that everything fell apart. I had pain in my chest worrying about where the next dollar was going to come from. I thought about suicide. I felt like I was a failure. I felt like I’d lost all my self-worth.
On my first visit with CAP my Debt Coach asked me to take out my credit cards. We got out scissors and cut them all up. After, I just sat there and cried.
When you’ve never budgeted it’s very hard to adjust because you just don’t know anything about it. My Debt Coach came up with ideas that I’d never thought about. I changed my lifestyle and my spending habits. I’ve even done a budget for my eldest son now. He was spending money as quickly as he earned it. He was doing exactly what I used to do and he had no idea.
Now, I’m debt free and I’ve recommitted my life back to God. I can see what God has done and I’m not thinking about dying anymore. I feel very happy. CAP has saved me from possible death and I owe my life to them."
