    • Happy New Year!

      I joined a while ago, but haven’t had a chance to introduce myself till now.

      My name is Andy Maleh. I’m a Canadian from Montreal born in the 80’s, of a Syrian origin. I lived in Chicago for over 10 years, but my current home is Montreal. I am an anglophone Quebecois (studied Computer Science at McGill University). I got a *** LAUDE Master’s in Software Engineering from DePaul University, Chicago. I’ve worked for big tech corps like Groupon and Lightspeed. I spend most of my own time working on open source software projects (just like Linus Torvalds did when he created Linux). My main current project right now among many is Glimmer (https://github.com/AndyObtiva/glimmer)

      I was invited to Lutheranism about 14 years ago. I heeded the call only 4 years ago. Now that I am a conservative born again LCMS Evangelical Lutheran, I put God first in my life (I was mostly non religious before and dabbled a bit with Buddhism till I realized people at its top were very unethical). So, I avoid all attachments to modern godless living and only use computers as a hobby/profession, not as a dependency. I train myself sometimes to avoid computers for a while. I also intentionally abstain from accepting jobs at unethical companies (something I wish a lot more people do instead of compromising God’s morals and conceding to falsely-agreed-upon-and-made “reality”). As such, I live a very poor minimal life, and I prefer it over my previous lavish lifestyle working for unethical big tech corps that supported unchristian values hurting many people.

      Otherwise, my hobbies are drumkit drumming, longboarding, snowboarding, and baseball (Go Cubs!).

      Thank you for listening and Godspeed.

      Andy Maleh

      P.S. I get followed by trolls on some websites sent to follow me by godless people who don’t like that I proclaim Jesus Christ everywhere nowadays. If that happens here, please ignore them and do not respond to them no matter what. You’ll recognize them from their profanities, godlessness, or homosexual attitude easily. Do not evangelize to them. They are all blasphemers against the Holy Spirit and reprobates beyond all hope. Save your energy for people who could truly benefit from evangelism instead. Thanks for your understanding.

    • Hello All in Christ,

      Guess you could call me an onion because I have a lot of layers to unwrap...don't want to make anyone cry so I will simply start with the first layer. :-)  I am from South Dakota, am a Deacon at a Dutch Reformed Church, but am not Dutch (actually Scottish).  Before living here I was a Deacon at a Southern Baptist church in Oklahoma.  I write a blog called "The Koifish Christian; Not What You Think".  Haven't quite figured w how to link it here, but have done a copy paste of a couple of my posts on this site.  Believe it or not I have very little interaction with other Christians during the week so I was drawn to this site.

      I pray that God blesses you all during these trying times...May we all emerge tempered for even greater labors.

       

      Don

    • HELLO MARK....WELCOME TO CSN!!  MANY OF US ON CSN HAVE HAD ACCOUNTS ON FACEBOOK, TWITTER, & CHANNELS ON YOUTUBE THAT WERE ATTACKED, SUSPENDED, LOCKED DOWN BECAUSE WE LOVE THE LORD JESUS AND SHARE HIS WORD!!  YOU WILL NOT HAVE THAT PROBLEM HERE.  WE ALL LOVE THE LORD JESUS AND HIS WORD AND WE ENJOY AND ENCOURAGE CSN FAMILY TO SHARE!!!

      YES, MANY ON CSN WERE BAPTIZED AT BIRTH, AND WHEN THEY MET JESUS AND BEGAN TO READ HIS WORD, THEY REALIZED THAT JESUS IS A PERSONAL ONE ONE ONE SAVIOR. BEING BORN INTO A CHRISTIAN FAMILY DOES NOT SAVE. BAPTISM DOES NOT SAVE ONLY A PRECIOUS ONE ON ONE RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS SAVES!  WE WILL BE PRAYING THAT JESUS WILL OPEN YOUR WIFE'S EYES TO THE DARKNESS SHE IS DABBLING WITH IN TAROTS/BUDDHISM AND ASK JESUS BELIEVING THAT HE WILL DRAW HER CLOSE TO HIM AND SAVE YOUR WIFE AS WELL. 

      WE ALSO HAVE LIVE EVENTS ON CSN ALMOST EVERY EVENING HERE IN CHAT ROOM. WE HAVE CHRISTIAN MOVIE NIGHT, PRAYER MEETING NIGHT, BIBLE STUDY NIGHT, AND PRAISE AND WORSHIP CHAT FELLOWSHIP NIGHT EACH WEEK. YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO JOIN US!!!

    • Hi All

      My name is Mark, and I am 50 years old born and raised in New Zealand. I have been born again for just over  a year, but have always classed myself as 'Christian' like most people do. I was baptised in the Anglican Church as a 8 day year old baby. But, after living a life of sin, I found Jesus and He has saved me from alcohol and porn addiction.

      I am married to Nathalie, who is Belgian. But, she is a lapsed Catholic, and she is into Tarots, astrology, and even a hint of Buddism. I pray that she will turn from this, and be born again. We have no children, (this is by choice) and we have been married for 22 years next January.

      I had a twitter account but that was suspended due to my Christian views on the world. In a way, it's a blessing, as I was getting rather angry debating with atheits. 

      I hope to get to know many for you and may you all be blessed.

      Mark

    • Hello everyone.  Praise the Lord!

       

      I was born and raised in the Catholic Church by my ethnic Polish mother.  My father always claimed to be Church of Christ, but he never went to church.  As a teenager I attended church {under duress from th leather belt of my father}, and was a member of the Legion of Mary.  While serving in the military I drank a lot and partied, but I never lost my faith.  I married a Catholic girl in Belgium in a beautiful four-hundred-year-old cathedral.

       When I was out of the military, My wife and I attended a Catholic Church here in Texas.  I didn't agree with the doctrine and so started to look around.  A Pentecostal brother invited me to his church, I went and was scared to death!  But I knew that was God in that church.  My very Catholic wife did not agree and a spiritual battle ensued.  

      We compromised and attended a Lutheran Church near our home.  I'm glad that we did, because the pastor there, Brother Mann, was the perfect example of a man of God.  When he was transfered to Arizona, I started to attend antoher Pentecostal church a co-worker attended.  

      This brother was a former male stripper and extremly good-looking!  So I had him witness to my wife and she started to attend with me to this penecostal church.  Yes it was sneeky, but you gotta do what you gotta do!  We attended there for fifteen years.

      When our youngest daughter went off to college, my wife told me that "her" children were raised and she didn't need me anymore and that I needed to go!  After a few years of marriage counceling and several attemting stabbing, I divorced her.  This broke my heart!

      After about a year later I met a Mormon woman who wanted to marry me.  I was not in a good place emotionally and made a bad decision and married her.  Our first year together was very good, but then she said that she fell off a chair at work.  She had six major surgeries in three years in which I took very good care of her.

      When she healed up and got better, she told me that she was not going back to work and that I would have to work more hours at mine.  Intimacy in our marriage would now end, and she was now longer going to do any housework or cooking!  If I didn't like it I could just go!

      I didn't go, I'm a slow learner I'm afraid.  A few years later, last July, she put on a wrist support, called the police and told them that I hit her!  I was asleep in bed when they arrested me!  My sorrow is now very great.  I feel like a failure and very foolish!  My heart is broken!

      My greatest joy now is in Bible study.  It is keeping me sane.  I just receved my Master's degree in Biblical studies.  I am now starting a new Master's program in Biblical languages.  My faith and prayer is keeping me going on in life.  Now that I am divorcing my second wife of eight years, my church has abanded me.  I am a sinner in their eye's.  I still attend but just sit by myself on the back row.

      I have descovered in all of this is that there are two people who will never abandon you in life, God and your mother!  The good thing in all of this is that I am now free of all commitments and am free to be used of God in a bigger way.

      I have written two books. "The Basics of Biblical Hermeneutics," and "Love Without Limits."  Both can be found on Amazon.com.  I have been a Hospice volunteer for ten years now and is a blessing in my life!  I teach Bible lessons on YouTube,  my channel is called, "Brother Roop teaches the Bible."

      I feel like I am alone on a small sailboat sailing away to a large and open ocean.  The wind is in the sails and the boat is carring my away to some unknown location.  I don't know if I will land somewhere or if a storm will overtake me and wash me away.  But I do know is that God is with me and angels are flying high above me.  I have hope.

    • Poor with words and phrases. Short and sweet is what I believe. Besides this a thinktank who can't get his mind to rest.
      Striving ever harder to get closer to God. Others may forsake me but God never does. Why be of the world? I rather be with God than of the world.

    • Hi. My name is Daniel Seo. I am 37 years old and live in South Korea. I grew up in a Christian environment because my whole family are Christians. But up to very recently I lived a very non-Christian life. I did drugs, drinking, smoking, pre-marital sex, and all the bad stuff, and did not feel guilty all that much because I had very little knowledge of the Bible and never went to church. Instead I spent every Sunday daydrinking. About a few years ago, I failed miserably at jewelry business that I had started. I spent about 60,000 dollars (all my saving plus bank loan) and gained nothing. Currently, I have to rely on my father to pay off that bank debt monthly and feel extremely miserable about the sintuation I am in. Because of this situation, I have become mentally unstable and have anger attack about 15 times a day. To find peace again, I had no choice but to beg God for his mercy and accept me again. I feel it to be very selfish of me that I am asking God for mercy now, knowing that I would still be living my own life not feeling much guilt if I hadn't been put in this troubling situation. I have been going to church every Sunday and attending a Bible study every Saturday for about 2 years now. I am trying hard to be a better Christian and become a new person. There is no going back for me now because now I know my weakness.

      love this introduction of you Joy!   I beleive we are the group that can help you stand stronger in Jesus' power.   Right now with our head administrator unable to be here the sight may seem a bit quiet in compared to its norm---but we are a group of believers that push to be fouces on Jesus throughout everything.  

       

      Glad you found us!  Be blessed and I will pray for you--prayer is powerful!   On that note, I suggest you post a request on your separation/divorce in the prayer request forum.  We believe in the power of prayer and come together in the chat room to pray over the requests.

      Thank you so much, Sister.❤️  That means so much and your encouragement and prayers are precious to me. I will definitely post there. We need as many prayers as we can, in this world!

    • love this introduction of you Joy!   I beleive we are the group that can help you stand stronger in Jesus' power.   Right now with our head administrator unable to be here the sight may seem a bit quiet in compared to its norm---but we are a group of believers that push to be fouces on Jesus throughout everything.  

       

      Glad you found us!  Be blessed and I will pray for you--prayer is powerful!   On that note, I suggest you post a request on your separation/divorce in the prayer request forum.  We believe in the power of prayer and come together in the chat room to pray over the requests.

      BIG WELCOME TO YOU!

    • Hi there! My name is Joylynn, or Joy for short.
      I am 36 years old and I love Jesus more than life or anything in it!!❤️
      I have 2 beautiful sons whom I adore. 
      I love reading, animals, photography, singing and the arts, graphic design and crafting.
      I am in the process of a separation/divorce, so just trying to get my feet back on solid ground and start living again.
      I have been struggling with health issues for many years, but I trust that the Lord will deliver me, so that I can serve Him better. 
      I am excited to find a group of believers that I talk to, pray with and fellowship with in Christ!

    • The Lord has been amazing in my life. He has brought me from self-pity because of epilepsy and blindness to being a hospital chaplain and community minister. I came to God at a Billy Graham Crusade in the 1960s. He has protected me at least 25 times in my life that I have remembered so far. I believe I am still here because he has an awesome purpose for me to fulfill. Of course, it could also be he is not ready for my jokes in heaven. Ha! God bless you all.

    • February 13, 2018 12:40 PM EST

    • Hi, my name is Jorge (pronounced /**:rhe/) and George is the English equivalent of my name. I was born in 1993 in Benavente, Spain. I learned English since the age of 14 and it has been my passion ever since. I did a DTS (Discipleship Training School) with YWAM (Youth With A Mission) in London where I really learned how to be a Christian, spent 1 year in London as a missionary and then went on to help out at YWAM Puerto Madryn, Argentina for 5 months and now I'm still in YWAM but in my home country (YWAM Vigo [Northwestern Spain]). At the moment I'm staffing a DTS and still on my way to discover more and more of God, myself as His child and what it really means to have relationships with others. One of my lifelong dreams is to go and live in the USA, particularly the west coast area (Washington state, Oregon, Idaho, Etc.) but at the moment I'm sticking around the place God told me to be for now, Spain. The area in which I work the most is translation (only Spanish and English, the languages I speak and understand)
      Anyway I'm taking longer than what I would have ever expected.
      God bless you, all and I just want to finish with this thought: how wonderful it is to be able to have nice conversations with the Father whenever we like.

      Me and My Love (Joey Roddy) felt like the Lord wanted us to leave Facebook, so we obeyed, and I prayed that He would help us find a Godly social Media page, and SO FAR I love everything about CSN. 

      The people are nothing but Positive and uplifting!

      So amazing to find others who serve the same God as you and Love him like you do, it's truly refreshing!

      I also go by Stef, is what my mother has called me all my life, so anyone is welcomed to call me Stef.

      If you would like to study with me one-on-one, I'd be happy to help! :)

    • August 6, 2016 2:51 PM EDT
    • YOU ARE MOST WELCOME JASON...

       

      DID YOU KNOW THAT GOD PUT JESUS AND HIS WORD LOVING MOTHERS AND GRANDMOTHERS INTO THE EARLY LIVES OF SOME OF THE MOST PRECIOUS CHRISTIANS IN THE BIBLE...TO TEACH THEM, PRAY WITH THEM, AND SHOW THEM JESUS?

       

      YOU ARE BLESSED IN THAT YOU HAVE A PRAYING FAMILY.  PRAYER IS POWERFUL TO AND FOR THOSE WHO LOVE OUR JESUS.

       

      AND THAT IS JUST ANOTHER REASON, CSN WAS CREATED AND OUR TROY IS DILIGENTLY WORKING LONG HOURS TO SEE CSN COMPLETELY FINISHED AND LOADED WITH ALL THINGS THAT SHINE, SHARE, AND SHOW OUR JESUS AND HIS WORD AND HIS TEAHINGS....NOT THE WORLD'S IDEAS....FOR THE MEMBERSHIP.

       

      AS WELL AS KITTY KAT AND CHARLES GIVING BIBLE STUDIES, AND DAN AND CINDYLOU AND TROY GIVING PRAISE MUSIC FELLOWSHIPS AND MOVIE NIGHTS AND PRAYER MEETINGS EACH WEEK...SO THOSE WHO ARE HURTING, LONELY, SEEKING OUR JESUS, OR NEEDING JESUS LOVING FAMILY...CAN ALWAYS FIND IT HERE 24/7/365.

       

      YOU ARE BLESSED BY JESUS JASON IN YOUR FAMILY AND FRIENDS!!!

    • August 6, 2016 7:49 AM EDT
    • Thank you Faith!  I do try to make it to the bible studies that you all hold on here.  But I'm usually awake all day doing things that I end up falling asleep and missing them.  But like I said on your status update about the music concert tonight, I will try my hardest to stay awake and be here tonight.  I agree with everything you just said.  And I am blessed to have an awesome grandmother who also reads the bible and I often will talk to her about the verses I read.  And I also talk openly about praying with my family.  We all pray for each other for different things that affect us in life.  I believe that God is listening, like you often say, and that He has helped us in various ways to stay strong during the tough times in life and He has watched over all of us when we have lost several close family members over the years.  I feel blessed that this site exists and that all of the wonderful people on this site have become my friend.  I always try to surround myself with fellow Christians because I believe that they are the best friends anyone can possibly have.  My best friend is also a Christian and she attends church almost every Sunday with her family.  And we are always in each other's prayers as well.

    • August 5, 2016 5:25 PM EDT
    • HELLO JASON....

       

      THANK YOU FOR SHARING YOUR INTRODUCTION WITH US.  I AM GLAD YOU LIKE ALL THE WONDERFUL TECHNOLOGIES THAT OUR TROY ADDED TO CSN TO SHINE AND SHARE AND SHOW OUR JESUS MORE BRIGHTLY.  AND KITTY KAT AND CINDY LOU ARE RIGHT....WE, NONE OF US, WILL EVER UNDERSTAND ALL THINGS IN JESUS WORD UNTIL WE WALK THROUGH THE GATES OF HEAVEN AND INTO OUR GLORIOUS ETERNITY WITH JESUS....BUT JESUS TELLS US TO ASK HIM TO TEACH US, SHOW US, GRANT US HIS WISDOM AND DISCERNMENT BEFORE WE DIT DOWN AND READ THE BIBLE AND MEDITATE ON IT....THE MORE WE READ, THE MORE WE MEDIATE, AND THE MORE WE STUDY JESUS WORD...THE MORE WE BEGIN TO SEE AND UNDERSTAND JESUS WORD...IT IS A JOURNEY...A STEP BY STEP...DAY BY DAY...PAGE BY PAGE JOURNEY...OUR JESUS IS PATIENT...SO BE PATIENT WITH YOURSELF...AND JOIN US FOR LIVE EVENTS AND BIBLE STUDIES AND YOU WILL GAIN JESUS WISDOM AND JESUS PROMISES AND JESUS TEACHINGS TOO AS WELL ENJOY THE FELLOWSHIP WITH OTHER CHRISTIANS WHO LOVE OUR JESUS AND HIS WORD!

       

      BE BLESSED AND STAY BLESSED IN OUR JESUS!

    • August 5, 2016 2:03 PM EDT
    • hi Jason nice to have this time to get to know you.   I am grateful that you shared you are struggling to understand the Bible...you are not alone many people feel that way and I believe you are quite brave heading in the right direction to have the desire to understand.   Pray about it!  God wants you to understand!  Cindy has some great advise.   

       

      I enjoy writing and have attempted a few things.   I am considering writing children's book as a hobbie and need someone to animate it.

       

      take care Jason!

KEEP SPREADING THE JOY AND HOPE AND LOVE OF OUR JESUS TO ALL YOU MEET HERE AND IN YOUR NEW HOME!!

    • July 31, 2016 1:28 PM EDT
    • Hello everyone, especially my new friends, I'm Loretta but you can call me Ko Ko if you like, Ko Ko means grand mother in Soweto, an African language.  I am a parent, grandparent, sister, aunt and I am retired since 2012 but most importantly I am a Christian, child of the King.  I believe in the Triune God, who is God the Father, Jesus Christ the son and Holy Spirit.  I believe Jesus died on the cross and arose on the third day and ascended to heaven and I believe that He is coming again.  I share the gospel of Jesus Christ whenever I have the opportunity by my living, my testimony and by the word of God

      I recently moved from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Edmond, Oklahoma and I love it here.  My son, daughter in love and grand children are here and my life is so much richer since I trusted God and came here to live.  God is so much more than I can imagine or think, I have always been blessed by God, even when I strayed away from His will but since I retired He has carried me in everyway.  My health and finances, He has looked after my sisters, family and friends.  

      I committed my life to Jesus in the summer of 1998 and I wandered from church to church for over a year trying to find the right home, one that taught the Word of God and followed His agenda and not their own.  I didn't think it would be as difficult as it was.  I don't agree with a legalistic church but some of the things I saw in churches helped me to understand why those churches feel the need to be so.  Things can get twisted quickly if God is not the pilot.  

      I am glad I found a site where there are committed Christians like myself and those that could help me stay on track.  CSN is like a touch stone, somewhere you can connect if you need someone to pray for you.  Praying for yourself is good but sometimes you need and want others to pray for you, amen.  This is the best Christian website I've found that comes close to actually being in a church service, this is not virtual it is real time, real bible studies, praise and worship, prayer services and fellowship.  Be blessed and have a nice day.  

    • July 31, 2016 8:54 PM EDT

    • Hi I want to introduce myself I  joined Godsfaithbook back in 2012 I truly believe that God led me to this site once there I found out how genuine the members were there in showing Jesus's love. For a long time I have been looking for something that was so devoted to Jesus.

      Growing up in a christian family or at least at that time I knew that my mother was truly devoted to God, my father not so much this is where I went through a lot of abuse by my teens I just figured that God didn't love me and with my parents always pushing him on me that made me want to have nothing to do with him I was so hurt and bitter for a long time up until 1999 I knew that God woke me up and told me to look out my bedroom door towards the living room at first I thought my ex-husband had left the light on but again God told me to look this time I seen flames and knew with living in a small mobile home that we needed to get out I knew in my heart that the flames were out of control and possibly in the ceiling above. That night our mobile home burnt down we lost everything.Before that night I took a lot of things for granted to the point of just not caring. Within the next year my ex-husband left me and eventually we were divorced still I wasn't following Jesus I did things that I knew were wrong I looked for love in all the wrong ways until I moved down to my present location I still wasn't following what Jesus wanted for my life I was hurting considerably until 2012 thats when Jesus came into my life and set me free of a lot of my past hurts and failures I thank Jesus so much for coming into my life. Today I don't know how I would live my life without having Jesus in it.

    • and Susie for answering the call on your lives!!!  Your ministry is great, I miss some of the traditional church services.  I miss the altar call where you actually knelt at the alter during the service and prayed.  Now, the church I go to has the altar call after the service is over, there is no spontaneous worship because most want to be out of church within an hour.  Please be encouraged in your ministry, it has value and people will be blessed by it.  Thank you for your faithfulness. 

    • July 20, 2016 9:47 AM EDT

      Kat,

      Thank you for opening your heart and sharing with us. You have been through a lot and continue to go through much but what a testimony that God is with you through it all. Thank you for loving and mothering foster children. That is a very special gift that you are giving.

      I am in agreement with you in prayer for more children to be in your life - whether foster parenting and/or adopting.

      I am very grateful to be your friend.

      Rhonda

    • I wanted to introduce myself further...posted by our own KAT671...ALMOST 4 YEARS AGO
       
       

      Sorry this is long, I hope you find it worth it lol!

      I was raised a Christian but my first big faith experience when when I was 12. I had lost my memory to a very bad seizure at Mayo Clinic Rochester MN. I didn't remember anything of my life. I had been in the hospital to have my colon removed because of Ulcerative Colitis. I don't remember much of the hospital stay but trying to go back to normal life was very difficult because although adults can understand, "she had a seizure and lost her memory" that isn't something my classmates that were also 12 could really understand, and even they could there was no way for me to be the old me, I didn't remember her. It would be an easy way to have a new birth ...but it wasn't easy at all! Nothing since has yet to compare to the loneliness of not remembering yourself or anyone else. Someone in a peer group suggested I turned to the book of Job. I did that and also looked at other Scripture begging God to help me. I was getting counseling at the time as you can imagine, but I didn't find it very helpful. What I did find helpful was prayer and scripture.

      I had been told (maybe not wisely) that I had gotten very close to death a few times at Mayo. I Kept asking God why he didn't let me die if life wasn't working out in any way. Nothing was going right, it seemed I could do nothing correct, there didn't seem to be one aspect of my life going as it should. That was the first time -or at least the first time I can remember :)that I felt an answer to my prayer.

      You are meant to do thing in this world, you are important. You will do thing for me (Christ). (was the feeling or message I got)
      This helped me a lot. It didn't make life suddenly get easier but it at least gave me the will to fight and the belief that I had somewhere to turn when I was down. Which I continued to do because the struggle did continue.
      I didn't know what I was going to do with that message right away. While in highschool though I did want to be a Pastor. My health problems as a child were still with me with some others. I didn't only thought of them as challenges at that time, and my Pastor did put me the correct path.

      I majored in religion at a Catholic college. I wasn't catholic but in my denomination there were not colleges near to home and I had, "challenges" that made being close to home helpful. I loved college. In my first year during the first semester break when home a friend of a friend of mine and I started dating that is now my husband! We were engaged for 4 years before we got married because I wanted to finish college first.

      During our first year of marriage within the first few months I got into the worse pain of my life...and began needing more doctor visits than ever before. It turned out that one diagnosis of my past was a misdiagnosis and many more joined it. I lost count at one point. At first I was determined to stay the course and try to keep headed to become a Pastor someday. Now I am pretty sure ordination is not int he books for me but I do realize their are many ways to serve God and other types of "Pastors".
      One of the first things my husband told me (before we even dated) was how much he wanted to get married and have children and raise them well. Be a better Father than he had. I can't have children ...a mirracle of this kind would be Oprah, newspaper and scripture worthy! We have been trying to adopt for over 4 years.
      We had tried to adopt our first foster to adopt special needs placement. We had him for 2 and half years and it was the second hardest thing to have to say good bye to him. I at least get o hear a few updates on him. It hurts though to know that his mother raises him with opposite morals than we gave him sometimes. Anyway, my husband and I want children very badly. I am pretty strong and although I may react, I always trust in God and go on.

      I almost forgot, because of the multiple diagnosis that came I had to quit working. I receive disability. My husband began a business that I help with. These days I am no longer live in constant pain and MOST of the time my numerous diagnosis-es are stable. Fatigue is my biggest issue since I still have the issue of needing my medications. At least at this time the number is no longer rising and I can once again walk in a store even during winter! Praise God!

    •        Greetings from Oregon,

      I just made the emoji on google so I hope you like it.  I have been on GFB for at least 2 to 3 years.  I have not been much for speaking since I have always been somewhat introverted.  I am 46, married with six children.  My husband and I work at the same company as customer service representatives for an internet business delivering food.  We have six children who are 24, 21, 19, 13, and twins who are 8.  I also am currently enrolled at Oregon State in one anthropology class.  I have 12 credits to go.   Well, see if that works out! Now, enough about me.  Jesus Christ is my Savior and has been since I was 9 years old.  Without him, I am nothing (John 15:5).  There is nothing more precious than the Word of God.  I read it daily and He brings that peace that surpasses all understanding.  I am thankful for this site and I wish you all His blessings and peace. Peace in the Lord Jesus Christ to all of you!
