Paines Settle into Florida Life


Erin and Chad Paine and their five kids are settling into the new home that God has blessed them with in Florida. It is larger than the house they rented in Tennessee, and it has plenty of land for their animals. As you can imagine, leaving their family and friends behind was difficult, but they say they are excited for this new chapter. The Paines posted two videos, in which you can see their emotional last days in their old home, as well as a tour of their new home.

  2. God blessed them with a home? How does that work? I know people who could use a home. They live in shelters, under the bridges, and in homeless camps in every city in the US. God doesn't favor them? But God blesses you with a larger home if you already have one?

    1. I don't begrudge the Paines a new home, but I see your point. I'm always puzzled by the "God's Blessing" platitudes, as if some people are more deserving than others. Countless innocent children are born into horrifying homes and circumstances every day. They haven't known sin of any kind, yet they suffer. Every child should be blessed with a stable home and loving parents who can provide for them. It's by sheer good luck that we are.

    2. It does seem a bit unfair, but some people get the goodies and others don't. I have no idea why it works like that.

    3. They didn’t have a home in Florida so they obviously needed one, as they no longer had a home back in Tennessee 🤷‍♀️

    4. If you get a new home, you should say you worked to get it, not say some invisible force gave it to you.

    6. I agree; it’s confusing to understand Gods blessings. Was it God’s hand that found them a home big enough for their large family with acreage for their farm animals or personal connections? Like others have noted; aren’t homeless, children and those who are struggling entitled to blessing like theirs? It sure seems like when the Bates need something; it materializes soon for them.

    7. That’s the thing about God’s blessings. We don’t deserve them but we receive them anyway, just because He is good. We can’t know what is going on in the lives of people who seem to us to be less blessed, or how God is going to turn their stories into something beautiful. 100% for sure, if you love the Lord, He WILL turn the hard things into something good. It may not be in this lifetime, but wouldn’t you rather be extra blessed in Heaven?

    8. 12:29 I agree. And since the Bates have so much, they should be giving extra generously to others to make up for any blessing shortcomings. Usually it's the people who have the least who are willing to give the most to anyone less fortunate because they understand what it's like.

      9:14 I disagree. It's no comfort at all to tell children going to bed cold and hungry tonight that they will be "extra blessed in Heaven." People need to drop what they're doing and BE THE BLESSING right now, right here! Don't wait for "God" to act. That's not the solution.

    9. Everyone is making good points about Gods blessings related to the Bates. Maybe Chad & Erin could be more transparent in how they can upon this home. I understand prayer; but somehow they were lead or told about this property.

    10. I’m curious as to why they felt the Lord’s calling them to a church family( their words)in FL over staying close to Erin’s own family???

  5. Great couple - good videos - it is nice to see these and I'm glad they are doing so well. If we could get America looking at this family instead of the messes that get wide publicity, we'd be a better country.

    Thanks for loving God and taking good care of your family.

  11. Adults move where you want. Why all so worried about them moving?

  12. Are the Bates all still a part of IBLP, the same organization that Jinger Duggar has exposed in her new book? I remember Gil Bates was in a leadership position.
