Does anyone know of jobs that a pregnant woman can get? My Youth Minister husband was asked to put in his resignation 2 weeks ago. He was asked to give it the next Sunday and then not to come back. We knew only those at the church so we immediately moved in order to be closer to family. (Our little one will be here in about 3-4 months.)
My husband is trying to find another youth/childrens' ministry position in this area, but I would like to help out if possible. We are currently living in an apt his aunt owns and has offered us, but we need some income before the baby is born. Needless to say we can't afford a home-based business that will make me have to buy anything to get it started.
If you can help please let me know. Also any prayer support would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance.

Do you have any temp agencies in your area ? You may want to call several of them, they can place you in assignments that are short term or long term.
You could also sell home baked goodies on eBay. For example, I just checked and homemade peanut butter cookies are selling for about $12/dozen. You would have to make a batch for your picture, but then your family could enjoy the cookies. At least you won't have to buy a lot of supplies because you don't have to make the cookies till someone buys them.
People also sell cakes and other baked goodies on eBay. If you can bake, you may want to search and see what other baked items are selling on eBay. (07/27/2006)
How about babysitting? (07/27/2006)
My daughter is 5 months pregnant and just got a job as a telemarketer. It's not a great job, but it will add to the household income until the baby comes and she can apply for other jobs. I think the pay is a little over $7 an hour and that's in Arkansas. Might pay more where you are. (07/27/2006)

I agree, try the temp agency near you. Or the telemarketing; here in PA, it pays pretty well if you have the patience for it.
If you are a wordsmith like myself, you could try calling your local paper and asking them to help you find a place to write responses for a "Dear Abby" column or to help you publish short stories. For fiction, it would be best to call a magazine editor rather than a newspaper; most papers no longer have much of an interest in publishing stories. (I think that's sad, but oh well).
Alternatively, if you have any friends or family (such as your family members) who have "connections" in their place of employment perhaps they could find you a temporary clerical position (in other words, a desk job).
Blessings In Christ,
May I suggest some of the websites like WAHM.com. Sometimes you can get jobs like customer service from home without having to put any money into it. (07/28/2006)
My brother just got a job with a cell phone company. It's a telemarketing kind of thing, but he takes orders I think. He also gets a free cellphone and free service. I think he makes $10/hour. Maybe that's something you can look into. (07/28/2006)
