Hi! I am a newbie on SparksPeople. I am an apostolic, stay-at-home mom of 2 teen boys. I am 39 yrs old and live in North Carolina. I go to Covenant Life Sanctuary and my church is in the ALJC. Any others in our assembly? I love church and its people. We live the best life and the blessed life. I just need to get this weight under control. I am a firm believer in the healing of God. He has healed me on numerous occasions. But I also know some ailments are caused by things of our own doings, so we need to put forth some effort in our healing process. I don't think God will just removed some of our health issues without us taking care of our temples. He has healed me of asthma, fibromyalgia, chronic kidney disease, depression...I still have hypertension and diabetes and I am overweight. I believe if I take care of myself through diet and exercise, the Lord will heal me through the process of the issues I brought on myself. I am a work in progress and I will achieve this in Jesus name! Praying for you all in your journeys!
I just realized that while I joined a few weeks ago, I have not introduced myself. My name is Tracey. I have been married for 7 years come August. I have 3 children (2 boys and a girl). I have been on this journey longer than I would care to admit, but I'm moving in the right direction! I attend a small church in Allen, TX, which is a daughter work of the church I grew up in that is in Denison, TX. I look forward to getting to know everyone! Have a blessed day!
Praise the Lord everyone! I joined Spark a few years ago being on fire to get healthy & lose weight. It's been a yoyo thing going on. I recently did a teacher certification that had a lesson about taking care of God's temple. The lesson put just enough out there to make you dig for more. So I'm back to do things different this time. Now that I've found this group I'm hoping I will have some help.

this is my second time on Sparkspeople. I know I have a long journey ahead of me. But I can;t seem to do it by myself. I'm hoping that we could encourage each other and allow God to intervene and give us the strength and wisdom we need to succeed on this weightloss journey. I'm not really an Apostolic. I;m of non denominational faith. But I am a born again believer who loves God. Looking forward to chatting with you . GBU2
Hi I am new to this group but not new to SP. I have tried to lose weight so many times, and failed so many times, so here I am again. I thought joining groups might give me the support I need. Ironically. When our church was called to fast I thought how can I be part of this. I have a hard time doing a complete fast because of my health, so I thought I would fast by giving up all unhealthy food, cutting back on quantities, and praying through these changes, and guess what its working, God is so good. Thank you for being here.
