So we've been saving and tried to put our house on the market last year - that was a disaster and the Lord made it obvious that He had other plans - better plans that involved patience and waiting on Him.
His other plans are coming to fruition. One year later we're on a different path, instead of selling our home we refinanced and are going to become landlords. Our mortgage is very low, which will allow us to hopefully make a decent profit on our current home each month. If its a total flop we can always sell now that the market has picked back up - but I think John's handyman skills and my accounting smarts will prove us down a really exciting path in the real-estate market.

Our new home will be a two story - all the living and bedrooms will be downstairs. The upstairs will have a bonus room for the kids to play in and then a guest bedroom and bathroom for all the company that comes to visit. We are super excited!
