As some of you who have been a part of the PI community for a long time know, I moved about a year ago after going to a small school. When I moved, I was scared that I would hate my new school and town, and that I wouldn’t make any friends- I was so wrong!! I love where I am now, and I have an amazing group of friends who help me be the best version of myself that I can be and bring me closer to God. My school is incredible, and I’m challenged. The only downside to living where I do is that the price of housing is ridiculously high. My mom is a teacher, and she doesn’t make enough money in a year to even rent her own house. We’ve been living with my grandparents for the last year, but they are thinking of moving because of the house prices. My mom can’t afford to rent a house, so she’s thinking of moving again to a cheaper area. This would mean me leaving the friends, community, and school that I love so very much. I am happier than I have ever been in my entire life, and I really, really, REALLY don’t want to move again. The only way that we wouldn’t have to is if my mom got another job that paid more. If it isn’t too much trouble, I would really appreciate prayers. I love it here so much, and I don’t want to leave. It’s a good place for my brother and mom, too. I really do believe that God put us here, and I know that everything will work out for the best, but prayers would be immensely appreciated!!

🙁 I remember you having to move last year. I’m so sorry! Living in a large city myself I understand how housing can screw you over. In my city a 2 bedroom apartment can cost between 1,000 and 1,500. And that is considered on the cheaper end. Sadly your mom does have to go where she can afford to provide a house, food, clothing etc. And since teacher are grossly underpaid a place with expensive housing must be difficult. 🙁 Praying for you!!

Aw babe I’m so sorry! I know exactly how this feels…I had to move a lot growing up and it was so frustrating because just when I was settled with a lot of good friends we’d have to move again.
Could you stay with your grandparents and visit your mom during the week? I’m sure you love your mom so maybe you wouldn’t want to do this, but it’s an idea 🙂
Praying for you! <3

Thank you both so much! It’s not a “for sure” thing yet, so I’m not looking into other possibilities until I know for sure what’s happening.
