Consider debt style before walking down the aisle

Moore, Byron.jpg

Question: Our daughter has just graduated from college. She worked hard to graduate without any student debt. Now she is romantically interested in a “perfect” young man. But our daughter tells us he has over $30,000 of student debt. This concerns our daughter (and us!) very much and we are wondering if you have any advice.
 
Answer: The school debt incurred by your daughter’s romantic interest is not necessarily a stop sign, but it sure is a red flag.

You wouldn’t entrust your health to someone who didn’t have a good track record and the necessary credentials and experience. The same care with which you choose a health professional should also apply to another important area of your life: your investment portfolio.
If you’ve worked with a financial advisor, you know how helpful it is to have a professional looking out for your accounts and keeping you on the right track with your investments. 
Sometimes it’s also beneficial to enlist the services of other investment specialists as well.

Fallin, Randy.jpg

If you’re of a certain age, the new year means you’re that much closer to a day you may have anticipated with a combination of humor and resignation — specifically, the day you’re eligible for Social Security.
But just because you can take Social Security, it doesn’t mean you must take it. So, should you?
Before we get to that question, let’s review the basic rules governing Social Security payments.

At the start of 2012, Janet Wilson like many other Ruston residents set a few New Year’s resolutions she wishes to accomplish.
Ideas of “I want to do this and I want to do that” crossed Janet’s mind, but she ultimately decided on three things she hoped to do.
“First I want to grow in my relationship with Christ,” she began. “Secondly I want to think more about other people than I do myself and lastly, I want to work on my physical health.”
For many, those may seem like easy tasks to do, but Janet said she is going to strive for each of them every day.

Missed opportunities, childish instincts revealed

Irby, Marna.jpg

I was thinking of the time when I was 13, sitting on the tall steps of our girls’ dormitory at Acadia Baptist Academy on the prairie out from Church Point, in south Louisiana, with my friends as we projected our futures.
I announced that I planned to be very, very old; possibly living to be 79, which meant I would still be alive at the turn of the 20th century, 2000. They laughed, which was fine, since I said it to be funny. That year was 1934.
