Meant to say Financial Peace University, Dave Ramsey. His motto is to take control of your money or it can take control (and ruin) your life:

1- Silly "saving" envelopes, saying no to kids and "extras", cutting up the credit cards: Best actions ever.

2- Lots of Biblical principles and encouragement.
