Help us buy our home
Organized by: Brenda Garrison
The reason we are setting up this GoFundMe account is because we are really interested in buying our home that we are renting. In case you don't know here is a little bit about our family I am a 32 year old mother and my husband is 37 between the two of us we have 8 children 4 of which that live with us. The ages range from 1-13yrs of age of the children that are in the home. My mother in law who is 72 yrs of age who also lives with us, she does help with some of the household expenses, but her health is not the greatest, If the Lord was to take her home soon We would definitely have to move because we would not be able to afford this place if we are still renting at the time. We honestly have very little income my children are on SSI and I get child support also for 2 of the children but it's still not much and that's how we are supporting the family we get no cash help from the government. As of right now my husband is looking for a job but it has been very difficult being that the children are in school but my three-year-old also attends school only half day and so My husband has to be available to get her on and off the bus when I'm at school. I am a full time college student. Neither one of us have very good credit at all we really like this home even though there is a lot of work that still needs to be done, but the reason we like it so much is because our children are out of the city it is a much quieter neighborhood than we have ever lived and our children seem to be much happier. As of right now we pay $850 a month for rent that is not counting our Electric in the summer time is about $100 and in the winter time it's between 200 and 400. Landlord has offered to only have us put down $6000. But then still pay $850 a month which we really can't afford we struggle every month to pay our bills, but with the Lord's help we always seem to come through. Now we are not a family that really like to ask for money or even ask for help but at this time we feel that if we just own the house we would be able to afford our bills a lot easier. And if we can come up with more the the down payment he's requesting we won't have to pay So much every month. So if the Lord places it on your heart to help our family out trust and believe that we will truly appreciate it. Also if you are not able to donate financially could you please keep us in your prayers that means a lot that you are taking time out of your day to pray for our family that means a lot. Thanks in advance to anyone that helps financially or even through prayer it's all very much appreciated. Thank you and may the Lord bless you all.
