Blessing: A House all of our OWN

Today was a BIG day for us.  We bought and paid for a house.  The bank does not own it.  It's ours.  The closing took 5 minutes. We signed 2 papers as opposed to when we closed on our first house. With a mortgage, you sign (what seemed like) millions of papers.

We are elated.  We have worked hard, made sacrifices and lived below our means for years....all for a moment like this!  THANK YOU God....and Dave Ramsey, of course!

The Cashier's Check we used to pay for our HOUSE.  In the amount of $78,167.00.

This house is not our dream house.  In fact, we have countless projects lined up to do in the next few months.  But, there is something about owning a house and not owing a dime on it.  The peace associated with not owning a dime on it is amazing.  We hope to help other couples learn to do the same thing when we host our first Financial Peace University class this fall. 

Here are a few "before" pictures of the house.  I can't wait to start our projects and share all of the before and after pictures.  Most of my inspiration comes from 2 of my favorite blogs, the famous and my friend Jenna's Blog,     Ready.....set.....GO!
