Default Conservative, family towns in Florida

Hello everyone!

I am mother of three wonderful children, and my husband and I are considering moving to the state of Florida. We are devout Christians and live our lives as close to Christ as possible, therefore we would like to find a town in the state the has the same values as we do.

We love Florida, and our current place of living does not have the values we consider important.

We live in Southern Indiana, have for six years, and feel that often the values do not coincide with ours.

I homeschool our kids, so schools aren't an issue. My husband is a contractor specializing in commercial building, and has no trouble usually finding work.

We're looking for a small, rural to suburban town that has the same values we do, and is mostly conservative in ideas. A nearby strong Christian (Baptist or Pentecostal) church is also needed. Honestly we'd prefer a mostly white population as well, just a personal preference. Our lives are deeply rooted in God and Jesus, so we want a place to raise our kids with less of the toxins that exist in the world.

My husband can possibly work in these towns that we are interested in.
-- Arcadia;
-- Spring Hill;
-- Inverness;
-- Lehigh Acres.

Any thoughts? Other suggestions welcome.

God Bless,

Jesi

Check out Yankeetown. No kidding, it's a rural town on the west coast and it tends to be quite conservative and Christian based.

No to Arcadia, no to Lehigh. Look at Spring Hill and Inverness.

I'd say Inverness. Small town, low crime, plenty of churches of all types and plenty of things to do with the family. I've lived here 7 years and really like this small town yet big enough to have everything you need.

I second the above recommendations and add that you should not look down here in this county (Lee County) at all. Best wishes.

Their preference is mostly white community, that community is Catholic and high immigrant population (it is in Immokolee) also Collier County is expensive!

I personally think you should try somewhere other than Florida for what you are seeking, perhaps a different state in the south.

Of course I'm not trying to speak on behalf of the OP but I think the whole race thing might of wanted them to avoid those states.

This post is rather unsettling.
