Debt Free Testimony, with Shannaan Dawda, Venicia and David: PP022


Life isn't easy and marriage isn't a cake walk, yet people across the world fall in love and decide to dedicate their life to another person. While love is a wonderful thing, when two strangers come together to build a life, there are some things that have to be worked out and worked on. Today David and Venicia gives us their story as both individuals and as a couple. Through love and communication, they were able to work out some of the more complicated issues people bring into a marriage. Yet, they allowed their beliefs, their ambition, and love for each other to guide them and as a result, they're happy, on track towards financial freedom, and they're still in love!
