Sanford NC

Looking to relocate to the Sanford NC area and was wondering if anyone on the forum might be familiar with the area?


Dealing with rough situation with my wifes health. Shes been up in NC since the beginning of December with her parents working on getting her medically reestablished there. It would have been July had she stayed in Louisiana.


Its me and my kid now and Im having to be husband at a distance and Im struggling to make sense of all this and keep things afloat. Bills are taken care of by the most part by inlaws and we miraculously got back on foodstamps.



This was back to back after me losing my job and then a month after Katherine got sick after losing hers.


We hung in there for a while until we absolutely needed more help and my mil was able to come down for a month.


Im still trying to homeschool the best I can but mentally and emotionally Im struggling with everything thats going on.


Im struggling with lonliness and despair while trying to remain functional and shield my kid from the worst of whats going on in life and the world.


Im trying to take every opportunity to just teach her all I can during this time and be a halfway decent dad.


Please please keep us in prayer.

Re: Sanford NC

Jedi, I am praying for y'all. I know nothing about the area you're looking to move. I have been an observer on this forum for many years. I rarely post but read a lot. Over the years I have observed your many triumphs over situations and also the situations that have seemed impossible to overcome or comprehend. Jedi, one thing I have seen through all of your trials and tribulations is God's faithfulness to you and your family. He has kept you every time and he will again. I have seen your faith in God. Continue to hold on to that. Your little one will be just fine. Teaching doesn't always have to be a sit down with a workbook type of learning. I homeschool my grand. Sometimes while playing with toys, we practice spelling, grocery shopping, we practice math skills. We send postcards to practice writing and reading. I am sure you are doing a much better job than you are giving yourself credit for. As parents, we are always hard on ourselves because we want the best for our kiddos. When they are grown, they will remember the love and the fun times, not the struggles. I will keep y'all in my prayers and look forward to the post you make when God turns this situation around. Keep the faith.

"We did not wear uniforms. The lady workers dressed in the current fashions of the day, ...silks...satins...jewels or whatever they happened to possess. They were very smartly turned out, so that they made an impressive appearance on the streets where a large part of our work was conducted in the early years.

"It was not until long after, when former Holiness preachers had become part of us, that strict plainness of dress began to be taught.

"Although Entire Sanctification was preached at the beginning of the Movement, it was from a Wesleyan viewpoint, and had in it very little of the later Holiness Movement characteristics. Nothing was ever said about apparel, for everyone was so taken up with the Lord that mode of dress seemingly never occurred to any of us."
