My question is, if we miss a couple of months of rent and pay off all of our debt (credit cards, etc) will this effect our home purchasing options? I don't want to not pay rent or not work with them, but this seems like the only way for us to be able to get our credit to a good enough standing.
Your idea makes as much sense as shooting yourself in the head! Sorry to be harsh, but that will lower your credit rating and make you a bad risk to a prospective lender.

I tried to work with them with a debt consolidation firm a few years ago. They were the only CC that would not. I have my personal accounts and my mortgage through them.
