Friends we are so excited for our brand new podcast. We’ve been dreaming of doing one since we launched our brand, but the timing wasn’t right. You can check out our teaser episode below, where we share a little more about us, and why we wanted to start a podcast.

Our official launch date is next week, March 5th. We hope you will follow along!!!

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE OTHER OFFER IS YOUR FRIEND?

Friends, remember when I shared there were other offers on the table when we bought the firehouse. Well, what happens when one of those offers is your friend?!? When the ideas you have for the space are the same? 

Watch my next IGTV video where I interview my friend Rebecca, as we share this part of the story in buying the Firehouse that could have brought so much division, but instead it brought closer together.

HOW WE GOT THE FIREHOUSE

maywood, IL firehouse

I'm so excited to share how we got the firehouse with you guys! It's a story full of pure craziness, but through it all, I'm able to see how God was with us since the beginning of the process. If you don't know what THE FIREHOUSE DREAM is, I highly recommend you read this blog post first!

 

HERE ARE 7 WAYS WE SAW GOD MOVE THROUGHOUT THE PROCESS:

1. The seller of the firehouse accepted our offer...even though we weren't the highest bid.

2. Our lender approved our loan even though the Firehouse was so unique. They have to hold the loan for the full 30years....which banks very rarely do that, if ever!

3. Our house sold for 1k over our asking price.

4. Our house appraised higher than our selling pricing.

5. Our house gained thousands of dollars in equity, only after living in it for a little more than a year, and that's with us doing no updates to it. It's what allowed us to have the money we needed to buy the Firehouse.

6. Since we sold our house over our asking price, we were able to buy beds for the girls, and a few other things.

7. God revealed so many lies that I believed about myself that He wants to bring freedom to!

 

Be sure to watch the video to hear the full story!

Friends, I hope that you are inspired by our story. How our yes, and open hands created space for God to show up, and provided opportunities for Him to blow our minds. He really is a BIG God, and can not be limited in how He wants to provide, show us how much we are loved, and so much more.

Until next time,

Jasmine
