I am blessed!

I can't tell you all what a blessing all you Christian Mommy's are to me. I have been finding that I have been pretty dry, and not growing too much in the Lord, and have been really wanting that.

Some background history; I went to church all my life, my husband was saved in that church we were married in that church, and my father was an elder there. Well, I won't go into detail, but my folks were asked to leave, basically to make a long story short, they were making a stand for what they believed and the church didn't like it. I have been pretty soured on churches since then and have not been back. I find, as you find everywhere, a church is full of hypocrisy, and to me that is disgusting to be that way about such a reverent and serious thing. Either way, we have been sorta searching for a long time for some where to go to suit our needs. Now that we have a little one, it has really been laid upon our hearts to find somewhere. I keep thinking back to all the Sunday school times I had, and feel she is missing out. We do the best we can at home, but I do think that at times it isn't enough. I was very hurt (I was young and impressionable when it all happened) and swore that I would never go back to church, but I do think the Lord has other Ideas for us. Now if only He would show us one to go to.

Lately in the past few months I have bought a few books, and am learning again. (www.christianbook.com) And man, oh man, what a difference in all walks of my life. Just feeling that God is with you all the time......

I am very blessed to have family and close friends who are all on a walk with God, and now I feel even more blessed to have you other ladies, that I don't even know, but we are all sisters in Christ, and that is very special to me.

Oh Sweetie!

Your story sounds just like my husband's. He had a very similar incident in his younger years with his parents and the church.

It's been a long road for us and after I was saved and came to know Christ after we married... he is slowly inching back himself and it's beautiful to see.

I'm so glad to have "met" you and I can't wait to see what God has planned for your sweet little family.

Thanks for sharing your story. So glad to hear what God is doing in your life right now. Keep seeking Him and all will fall into place. You are right -- churches are full of sinful people -- but I guess the way I look at it is without that sin there would be no need for God's Grace -- and it is so abundant! Blessings today.

What a wonderful story! Truly, my friends from church are among the closest to me because we can share so much more at a deeper level.

My story

Welcome to my blessed life!! Meet myself, a 32 year old stay at home momma. Meet hubby, who I have been married to for 14 years. We got married right out of high school, and while there have been many hardships, my husband is my best friend, and I wouldn't change a thing. We are living life with a 6 year old Grade oner, Gracie and 3 year old toddler, Alysha, which has its challenges, but we love every minute of it. God has blessed us with everything we need as well as tonnes of great friends and family.
