hi, we do not even know where you live, so hard to look for rentals. you say you can pay both rent and deposit, so what do you need help with. Do you want us to help you find a rental? Where.

I am ah Mother who really needs some help in finding me and my 6 kids a place to stay until I can get a job and get on my feet. I moved from another city because of serious situations that could cause me my life. I moved with no regrets and never looking back. I need some help I'm not the type to want others to feel sorry for me cause I'm usually doing this on my own providing the needs for my Babies. So if anyone knows any resources I can look into to help me make my situation a lil better (a place to lay our heads, a job) really need you'll help

hi,go to DHS,apply for TANF,foodstamps,section 8,and cash assistance. go to food bank every month for more food, and to churches with food pantry for more free food if needed. also get free clothes for yourself and your children whenever you need them at churches with clothes closet, call churches in your area to find out which ones do(usually Catholic ones do) we do not know any resources that will help with a car,sorry.

I am so glad that my words have helped you look at your situation a little differently. I have been through a lot in my lifetime and God has always seen me through it. God is great to have made you too. Thank you so much. I will pray for you as well as your praying for yourself.

I'm sure that God knows how sad you are that He didn't save your mom. You might even be angry with Him on some level. If so, that is alrright. He knows and understands all of what we feel. You are right. He knows your heart and He will provide for your needs. I t may come in the form of money or it may come in the form of what money can purchase. With God, there is the element of surprise. Just keep talking to him and thanking him and letting him know you trust Him even though you are sad and hurting. I have found that God can be my very best friend. And if I tell him that I am angry or sad, that does not stop him from loving me or providing for my needs.

God has not deserted you even though you may feel like it. Read through some of the prayers that I have written for others. You say that you pray and ask God for help. Before you ask for help, find at least one thing to thank God for every day, no matter how bad things are. Thank him and then ask for what you want. God does love you.

Thank him for meeting your needs for food, transportation and a job. Thank him over and over even though you have no idea how He will do it. Just begin to thank him in advance. Let him know that you trust Him in these hard times.
