I would consider myself a Liberal Christian and would like some other christians women help in this matter.

My husband and I bought a house and property from family members so they wouldn't loose it in foreclosure-we did have plans to stay. However, I do not feel our families mesh well. Lot's of differences. I attempt to maintain peace by keeping my mouth shout. My husband has also found a new job 5hrs away. We want to sell the property. We've already brought this to the family members who now feel we are being unfair and seem to have forgotten they financial difficulty they were in and the reason we bought the property in the first place.
I understand they are angry and hurt-but we are going to be living in the same house for a least 6 months. Anyone have any Scriptures for me in how to stay positive and loving during this time?

i don't have any scriptures. But unless you are able and willing to give it to them your only option is selling it. However before you put it on the market you could offer to sell it to them. Without listing and agents you could save you both a lot of money. Otherwise, on the market it goes. It sounds like you are giving them a lot of time to digest this which is very sweet of you. What more can you do?

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

Is there any way that you can rent it to them or sell it to them for a price that they can afford? I don't have any scriptures but keep praying about things and ask the Lord for guidance. Best wishes.

"A gentle answer turns away wrath, but a harsh word stirs up anger"

It may not turn out exactly the way you want it too, but if you remember this, you'll have a clear conscious at the end of it all. As for the details of what to do, pray!
