"We first called Ronald Blue Trust to determine how soon I could retire. Our Ronald Blue Trust advisor guided us on a spiritual path at exactly the right time to focus us on God’s will at this stage of our lives and we will be forever thankful."

"I've been involved with financial planners for well over 40 years. There's very few of them that do it like Ronald Blue Trust. Very few concentrate on giving as part of the overall plan."

"Working with our Ronald Blue Trust advisor and their team of experts has been a 'game changer' for us to ensure we are managing our wealth wisely and being generous with the time, talents, and treasure we’ve been given--all from a biblical worldview."
