John Maxwell, The Fourth Maxwell Son to Purchase a House Debt-Free

We’re excited to share the news: John bought his own house debt-free this summer! After over a year of looking, searching, and praying, this one suddenly appeared. Wow! All the pieces came together, and John purchased it. It was an exciting day for sure.

John invited the family over for a time of blessing and prayer. We enjoyed exploring the house and getting a tour as well! It was fun to see the littles looking at Uncle John’s house.

The condition of the house overall was quite good. But still a lot of work to be done! Projects make for awesome family times. John has been diligent to get materials for his house in very creative + thrifty ways. We’ll share more on that later.

This was the kitchen. Wait until you see the “redo” it’s getting!
Looking into the dining room: again, wait until you see!
As you can see, bedrooms just need paint, carpet, etc

and afterwards build thine house.”

  1. Congratulations to the happy couple! The next couple of months are going to be very busy and fun with all the wedding plans and house renovation projects. My favorite hobby is home decorating. Wish I lived closer, I would offer to lend a hand! Enjoy this time of preparation. Some days may seem overwhelming but you have the faith to know that our Lord and Savior is with you every step of the way. ?

  2. What an encouragement to those who endeavor to live debt free! Congratulations to John and Chelsy on their engagement.

  3. Amazing! Great job John. I can’t wait to see what it looks like as a home after renovations. It is always exciting to see things come together and hard work pay off during a remodel.

  4. Congratulations on your purchase! I am sure you and Chelsy are going to have a great time turning this house into a home. Seeing this home brings back to many memories of my husband first fixerer upper. We ended up flipping it a about a year because it had doubled in value. I hope your sweat equity pays off!

  5. Good for him. It’s wonderful when you can purchase a home debt-free. Both my girls have been able to do that, too, over the past couple of years. They both worked hard, lived at home, and saved every dime.

  6. Thank you for sharing all those photos. Itโ€™s wonderful to see the family looking around at all the potential the home has. God has blessed you with a great team?. Weโ€™re looking forward to seeing the renovation process. What an encouragement to see that John was able to avoid debt to purchase his home.

  7. That’s great! I love seeing the pictures and can’t wait to see the transformation. We do the envelope system with money and my kids all have a “House Fund” envelope. They are still young so not much in it, but hopefully planting the seed! Kudos to the Maxwell sons for owning homes debt free!

  8. What an inspiration to young men as well as those of us who did not receive the proper training growing up. The goal for my family is to buy a house debt free. We have purposed to not incur debt just so we can get into a house. It is not always easy especially with beginning a family. The urge to get out of apartment living can be weighty but the hope of doing things God’s way is greater!
    Thank you for the encouragement. We are excited about the journey John is on. We pray for him and Chelsy and look forward to seeing God work in their lives!

  9. That’s exciting! The house is very big. It has lots of room for little kids that will probably follow the wedding. ๐Ÿ™‚ I bet Chelsy will enjoy helping to decorate it!

  10. I can’t wait to see what they turn it into. Please give us lots of pictures. Have fun remodeling. My dad and brother remodel houses and rent them out. Some of them that they buy I think there’s no help but man they turn them into beautiful houses and trailers.
