Welcome to the dfree® blog. I hope these pieces will help someone think new thoughts and take new actions toward their financial freedom. The proverb says that "the borrower is slave to the lender." (Proverbs 22:7) I have dedicated the rest of my life to helping people obtain spiritual and economic freedom. ~ DeForest B. Soaries, Jr.
