I turned into a finance nerd and proceeded to read over 100 books on personal finance.
We got out of $24,000 in debt and turned our house into rental property.
We were officially debt-free.
I also dove into research on fitness and nutrition.
I found time to exercise, mostly through hiking and strength training, and lost the 50 pounds over the course of a year.
And then we made the decision to adopt a sibling group.
We had always wanted to adopt, and we felt like God put a situation right in front of us with a direct opportunity.
