My family will be moving to Big Sandy in the near future to fill a pastorate there. We have always lived in the city (1 mill +) and expect some culture shock. Is there any way to prepare? I have 4 children (all homeschooled) and am thinking about their adaptation to rural life.

Default Depends how you raised them

It really depends how you have raised them. Have you raised them to understand God created nature, whereas cities and all their trappings are artificial creations of people? If so, they should revel in the natural aspects of the rural region. Hiking, cross-country skiing, enjoying wildlife, watching birds, learning plant names and functions... There are an infinite number of things to do in rural areas. It all depends how one is raised and one's understanding of what's real and important in life.

there will be a BIG difference, big sandy has about 650 people, your between havre and great falls, flat plains area. its beutiful in its own way, the canyon and draws. room to ride, hunt fish, be very alone if you wish. culture there the rocky boys rez, missouri river breaks, etc. its the plains of mt, youll understand the term Big Sky country, get a powerful telescope. enjoy the coyotes at nite, its cool. and yes its very cold when it gets windy when it blows down from canada.
