In 2013 our 1st son was due in September, and our little 2-door Scion didn't feel like the best family car.
Whitney and I prayed that God would show us the right car to buy, help us with a good deal, and find something that wouldn't give us issues.
Then we visited dealerships, but didn't get a good vibe, or we'd find one we liked only to call and it was already gone.
Here's the list of cars I had been tracking on our spreadsheet (click photo to enlarge):
With the baby due date just a month away, and no car in our driveway, we started to pray more.
Finally, every car on our list was gone, except one.
On the far right of the spreadsheet is the car that felt least likely to work out since it was far away, and despite being deeply discounted past our budget due to shipping costs.
Whitney and I agreed to take a shot, so I sent over the offer and the dealership actually countered with a lower offer. I've asked a lot of people if they've ever heard of this happening when buying a used car, nobody has.
Long story short, we bought the car, had it shipped to us right within our total budget, and found the car better than advertised. Our Subaru Forester has been phenomenal and we are sad to see it go now that we have a third child on the way and need more room.
You can be assured we're praying God guides the process again!
