User-submitted image -  Click to see real sizeWith a grateful and thankful heart, we want each and every one of you to know that you have greatly blessed us. It was a difficult few months for us, and I felt as if I was drowning and taking my family down with me. I remembered God's word that said to, 'Ask and it shall be given to you, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you'. Matthew 7:7 With all my faith, I searched online for help and God sent you to us. Your act of kindness has restored our faith, that there are still good people in this world that believes we should take care of each other. During our hardship, you reached out your hands and gave generously, and now it is your time to expect your overflowing of blessings. Because of your blessings to us, my family and I will make sure to pay forward, because we all should take care of one another. Thank you.

Hardworking Family Needs Rental Help After Income loss

My Story:

I am married and have 3 beautiful and God fearing daughters. One lives in Oklahoma married to a brave soldier and my middle child lives in Wyoming attending college to be a Chef. At home is my youngest who is 14 years old, she studies online and I am her learning coach. We both sing all day long and she at times goes with me to work to keep me going. I work for the Census Bureau with data statistics and I attend a university working towards my bachelors degree. My husband works hard for Family Dollar as Assistant Manager. We have 3 family dogs whom 2 are rescues and a spoiled cat.

My job is temporary which means that every year I receive a review to extend my job duties for another year. It is part-time hours so I do not receive big paychecks but enough to pay my bills. My husband's job does not pay high so when we fall behind, it is difficult to catch up. This time we are unable to make our rent payment because I missed a lot of days from work to help my parents move from their house from California to Wyoming. This was unplanned and happened so quickly, but ever since my sister died last December, my parents needed me to be by their side since we are still mourning her death, especially during this time of year. We do not have the money to pay our rent at this time.

Your assistance at this time would be the biggest blessing. Last year our Christmas was mourning the death of my sister and this year I want to bring a smile to their faces, and not worry about being homeless. This would help us get caught up on all our expenses to begin the new year on a positive note. My husband and I have started working as a self contractors delivering food to customers so we can get our finances back in shape. We are doing what we can to take care of our responsibilities and become role models to our family.
