In 2012, Ron partnered with Indiana Wesleyan University to establish The Ron Blue Institute for Financial Planning, dedicated to multiplying the message of biblical financial wisdom in the public and academic sectors through curriculum development and thought leadership.
Ron holds a BS and an MBA from Indiana University. He and his wife Judy live in Atlanta, Georgia. They have five children and thirteen grandchildren.

Tame Your Money Monster! Mar 16, 2003
Ron Blue is the founder and managing partner of Ronald Blue & Co, a financial advisory firm, and he has earned his Master's in Business Administration. Does this make him an expert? Well, maybe not, but his advice is incredibly timely, and written with a well-spring of wisdom for today.
His book reads like a roadmap to recovery - financial recovery - if one is interested in recovery, with some of the chapters such as:
Taming the Money Monster The Road to Debt Advertising Illusions
Financial Deceptions A Biblical Perspective The Road Ahead How to Get Out of Debt When Should You Use Credit? (How's that for timely?) Understanding Credit (Most don't) Installment Debt Mortgage Debt Other Debt
There are chapters on college loans, church bonds, house debt and business debt, and it deserves to be read and re-read. Don't let money rule your life. Read this book and see how Ron can help you manage your money wisely and you can find real financial freedom from the bondage of the Money Monster.
Highly recommended - Should be required reading Feb 4, 2000
I highly recommend this book. It really should be required reading, especially for couples before marriage and young people in general. While it does contain a chapter on how to get out of debt, even those who are not in debt would benefit greatly from the understanding they would gain about credit and debt.
Mr. Blue discusses "the magic of compounding interest" and how it can work for or against you. He also outlines four common sense rules that should be followed before going into debt of any kind. He specifically discusses credit card debt, car loans, and mortgages as well as church, business, and investment debt in light of the four common sense rules.
The book is well-written and easy-to-read with real-life examples. It will help those who are in debt to get out, and, if Mr. Blue's advice is followed, it will help anyone to make wise financial decisions in the future.
Great read and ideas Mar 28, 1999
Anyone reading this book, and putting its ideas to work, can accomplish the goals set forth in this publication. Easy to read, practical, entertaining and truthful are but a few of the praises I place on this book. What it professes really works. I have tried it. Prior to reading this book, my wife and I had no hope of getting out of debt. Following Mr Blue's advice,with lots of faith, we are on our way out. Thanks Mr Blue.
