Probably not without a foreclosure happening. A secured debt in bankruptcy means that the owner of that debt gets the security (in this case your house), sells it, then gives you any money above and beyond the amount owed (minus administrative fees, taxes, etc).

If you still live at that address, you probably don't want to do that... talk to a bankruptcy lawyer instead, and get his/her advice. They usually consult for free initially, and can give you a better idea of what to do and why to do it.
