    • Cullman, Cullman is a generous community made up of 12,000 people and has the most churches per square mile in the Guiness Book of World Records.  Our community comes together in tough situations like my moms. She was diagnosed with Large B cell Lymphoma on June 18th. My mom is the strongest person I know. Before she was diagnosed she would stay up till 1 o'clock in the morning deadheading flowers because she loves things to be like her, pretty.  The landscaping is a lot of work and it takes her and dad both pitching in to keep it maintained.  With her down the front yard she worked so hard in is being partially maintained by my dad but this leaves him no time or energy to put towards the back yard and garage.  Is say partially because three teachers from the school mom teaches at comes every now and then and helps pull weeds and laid some pine straw. Also, my dad lost his job in April and has not been able to find work since so this has been a very rough Summer on both of them.   We have lived in our house for about 7 years and have done all the remodeling ourselves and we've done a ton.  But, since she developed cancer and he lost his job they have not been able to complete a lot of what they started.  For the past 6 years they have been a great influence to other people and have volunteered for our church.  My dad was the campus administrator for our church as a volunteer for the last two years and has always poured his life into others.  My mom has made such an impact on kids during her teaching career that I have students at the High School still tell me how much she means to them even though it was third grade when she taught them., South

    • Flint, MI, My city is Flint, Mi, also known as Vehicle City the birth place of Buick City. My city was hit economically hard by the closing of several vehicle manufacture plants which in turns hit the job market that effected the housing market extremely hard. Now, my city has been on the comeback! General Motors have been hiring new workers and the economy is on the rise! The housing market has improve tremendously! It has changed so much that I have been blessed to be able to purchase my first house! :-D I brought one of the worst houses in the best neighborhood. I got the tip from Property Brothers ;-). I have renovated the entire house! I also took some notes from Curb Appeal and remodel my front yard. First impressions are the best impressions! ;-) But, the backyard is lacking. I've built a fire pit from watching a video on Lowe's website and built a raised garden bed from a video on DIY Network but that's it. I need some HELP! I'm in Lowe's every other day. If the workers don't see me, they wondering where I'm at or what's wrong; in a good way. I'm always shopping for Oops paint if nothing else. I would live for YardCrashers to visit my city. Flint is a very small town with some lovely people we would welcome you with warm hugs! ;-), Midwest
