{Poll} Are You in Debt?

We've been counseled by our church leaders to try and stay out of debt. There are obviously good things that typically require debt - education and homes, for instance - but it's important to stay vigilant on the slippery slope to financial ruin. 

Debt is not a topic openly talked about, as it's very personal, but we think it's an interesting topic that deserves discussion.

Do members of the Church have a better understanding and grasp on their finances (after all, we are taught at an early age all about tithing, saving for missions, and providing for our future families)? Or are we just as susceptible as everyone else? Take our (as always) anonymous poll below to find out.
