Our Journey to a Mortgage Free Home: #1

What do you do when you want to be a homeowner, but you don't want a mortgage?  
You get ready to get creative!

Let me back up, several years ago we moved to the state we live in now from a different state.  We (and the bank) owned our home in the state we moved from, so we put it up for sale shortly after moving. When we sold our home we essentially broke even, which didn't give us anything to start over with. That was okay though, because we had decided that we never wanted another mortgage.  We were so glad to be out from under it and not be paying a mortgage on a house in one state and rent for another in another state!  Since we had nothing to start over with we had to get creative if we wanted to be homeowners again. 

Our creativity started out looking like this ... 

... a burned out house and a grown up lot.

 We did a lot of praying and with the help of a dear friend putting in a good word for us with the owner (someone else was interested in buying the property too), we were on our way to home ownership again, this time mortgage free.  We paid $3000 for a little less than an acre of land and this burned out house.

Let me say from entry one of this series that we give God all the glory and praise for the help and helpers He provided for us along the way.

So, what did we do with this mess ... that's what I'll share in the next entry!

She looketh well to the ways of her household … Proverbs 31:27
