Alright lets see if I can talk the right person into making a generational changing life decision for my family. I am 39 years old. I am married and I have 4 kids 67,8,17,19 years old. I have always worked hard I thought for what I perceived as the American dream. I bought a starter home, moved to a bigger home, moved from there to a nice home in a private country club. All the time burying myself deeper and deeper in debt. Each home sale to dig my family out of the small mountain of debt that would accrue. The last move we made about a year ago was different. I lost my grandfather in 2013 and it changed my mindset. My grandfather lived on 400 acres in SE Oklahoma and lived debt free and lived off the land. He begged for years for me and my family to move there and take over the farm. After he passed, so did that offer. Family has torn it apart. Anything that could be sold was, the land is split four ways, all family members have already committed to selling out when granny dies. This leads to where we are now. We sold the house in the private community and we have purchased a 1900 farm house on 2 acres. I have set my sights on debt free. I know what papa had is gone and now i feel that my children are missing the best thing to ever happen to my adolescence. I owe 120k in total debt and 70k on our property. For pity points, my 8 year old is deaf and i wish i could give her more than just the necessities in life. I know it is an accumulation of my own life decisions where we are, but without debt, the sky is the limit.
