I recently left sparks in thinking that I would never return. I am still recuperating from Spinal Surgery back in August.
I just felt that I needed to come back to sparks not only to be encouraged but to encourage others. I feel like the Lord had me start another Christian team. Avie, I wish you would take a look at it. I know you do not have time to join for you pour your heart into this team as well as Word Press.

I look forward to being part of this team as I have time from the leadership responsibilities of the new team.

Just know you are in my prayers.
Hugs,
Lois




When you think you can't, give it to the one who can-JESUS!
Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.
He has promised Never to Leave You nor Forsake You!

Hi all! My name is Toni and I'm a 41-year-old married mom of 3 boys ages 18, 14 and 3. I was born and raised Catholic and continue to practice the faith. What I've found over recent years is that while I'm happy being Catholic, there are pieces from other Christian churches that I like and relate to. While I love Jesus with all of my heart, I find myself sometimes struggling to get the relationship that I want with Him. I'm hoping that this team will help me find that and answer some of the questions I have within my Catholic faith.

In the meantime, I'd like to share one my my favorite prayers with you. It's is from St. Teresa of Avila:

Let nothing disturb you,
Nothing frighten you;
All things are passing,
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things,
Nothing is wanting to him who possesses God,
God alone suffices.






Know and LOVE yourself!

Hello, I am a born again Christian at age 8 and spirit filled at age 48. I have multiple health issues which keeps me from losing weight, but I have managed to get off some meds and cut down on others by eating healthy. I cannot always exercise, but try to do my best. I have a wonderful church here in Central Texas, a small prophetic church. I live with my sweet dh and 2 cats. I am a prayer partner and will pray for you if you need prayer. I look forward to getting to know the members of this team. I have been on SparkPeople for 7 years and stay because of the support from other members.

Every step you take towards healthy living adds to your life. It's never too late to make changes that will affect your future!

I pray that others here will inspire you to continue to work towards your goals for a healthy lifestyle, just as you are an encouragement to those here on SP. Thank you for ministering God's love to those around you!

I came into Spark 11/2 years ago. I came because I had just recently found out I had a heart condition. It was due to fragments from hitting a stirring wheel where my new car was totaled on the third day I owned it in 1993. I was going 35 miles an hour then hit by someone going 95 at 9:30 in the morning. I stepped out of my demolished car to go on and become the walking disabled with 8 illnesses that were constantly with me. After 12 years feeling like the victim, God helped me to cure myself in two days, and I stepped out older, yet healthy. Yet this recent illness was from bone eating prescriptions given to me that released fragments in my chest. I went on to be laid off with everyone from my work, searching for work for nearly 5 years. Now 2 years later, I am now retired but stress never ends. I have put on 65 pounds, and have taken off only 10 recently. I just want to get back to living, and being healthy. I think I am a secret closet writer, because I really enjoy blogging here, and ministering to people. I am a born again Christain-8 years now.eva

Good site to go to just to look. I just typed in Carenet( it showed me . Org) .
Don't know what the Chinese site was. Wish I could read & speak that language.

Glad you support the ministry. It is awesome. I would like to find more ministries that helps young women too.
Take care.
Enjoy your weekend. Blessings^ j^

Thanks for the information! I went to carenet.com and it brought up a Chinese site that could be translated into English, but when I translated it, it didn't look what you were explaining. I live in a rural area so probably the closest one would be in the City which is about 1 1/2 hours away. But thank you, I appreciate knowing about the ministry. It is one that is very much needed in our society today!

God bless! Happy Resurrection weekend!

Hi to everyone!
Iam a volunteer-counselor@ Akron Pregnancy Service. Off& on since 1994.
Where I first was required at the time to read Kay Arthur's book Lord is it warfare?
Due to God leading our clients( women& men) to us for pregnancy tests, abortion, adoption& parenting decisions. To which we get to tell them of their babies they are carrying, etc. we don't judge, but are Pro-life!

Then we come alongside them to help parent. With prenatal, parenting classes& Bible studies& more. Our clients earn vouchers for attending these classes& shops in His boutique.
We are not government ran so we do share the gospel& pray with them... Even if they never return.
This is all God 's plan. I have always been excited to be apart of His plan. Due to disabilities w/ me& my husband for a year& a half off& on I have not been able to be there for awhile.
God uses my sisters in Him to keep me going with prayers, calls, cards, etc.
it sure is nice to find others who put on the full armor of God.
If any of you are interested I go on- line& order his free devotional of In Touch Dr. Charles Stanley. You can go in his archives@ in touch. Org to march 23 -2012 & i read the full armor of God prayer daily.
Thanks for the warm welcome.
Have a Blessed Easter^ j^


I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
Philippians 4:13 ^ j^

emoticon Karen, and for your e mail prayer and Scriptures too. Thank you to others who prayed for me too. The cold is gone but I still have a sinus infection, and that is one less bug to fight, at least. Meanwhile today is a gorgeous sunny one (snow storm headed our way up the Eastern seaboard- we live in Nova Scotia). But that is OK too as we have all we need in our own house here- even a wood stove if the electricity goes out...we are blessed. emoticon God is good.

I'm so glad to have both of you, Jen and Wendy, as a part of our team! We welcome people from all faith backgrounds to join us as we grow in the knowledge and understanding of our God and Father, His Son the Lord Jesus Christ, and the principles He has set down in His word for us to experience by and through His Spirit. I would suggest that you read the "Rules of Conduct" to get a better understanding of the purpose of our team and how we want to interact with each other. Look around the threads and respond to any that speak to your heart. Karen (FAITHGIRL91) and I are here to help any way we can. Please feel free to contact us.

Blessings to you both!

And thank you, Joanie, for spreading the word and the invitations to join our team! You are an inspiration and blessing to me!

Welcome Wendy and thank you, Avanell and Faith. I look forward to learning more. My father was RC and my mother United, my ex husband Anglican and some friends are Baptist. The church I attend currently, actually "visits" the other congregations and beliefs once a year. Pastor Kim is very likeable and helps everyone understand the Word of God. I find myself being blessed to be able to join both communities and learn more from others' and their opinions.

Thank you again!

May God bless everyone.

God wants us to serve Him. Faith in God & Christ. Our bodies are our temples to God, and when we treat our temples with love and nuturing, God will reward us as we reward ourselves with a better and healthier lifestyle!

Thank you, Avanell, for the Spark Goodie, and the warm welcome to this team! I.grew up in church, but didn't really "know" Jesus, but I was born again in 1974 when I was 33. I have never been the same again. After reading so many of the previous posts, I see there is some common threads...Joanie also encouraged me to check up on this team.. I hope I can be an encouragement to others, and look forward to meeting the rest of you.

I live in Iowa on a farm with my DH, and we will celebrate our 55th anniversary this coming June. We have 3 grown children, 9 grand children and 15 great-Grand Children..

Wendy

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. Acknowledge Him in all your ways, and He will direct your path!

Hello everyone.

I am new to this group. I have read your message

I just turned 50 two weeks ago. I am currently on a mental disability pension. I live in Essex, Ontario. I am not married nor have any children.

I have held many positions. I have always prayed and believed in God & Christ. I have begun again and belong to a community United Church. I was baptized and confirmed in an Anglican Church and married there in 1990. I divorced in 1997 but walked out on my ex, not God in 1994.

I have had my death rites read to me in 1967 - 1968 a few times (Roman Catholic and United) when I was a toddler.

I strongly believe that God has a purpose for all of us.

I wish to thank Joanie for helping me and leading me here.

Thank you everyone and may God bless all of you, your friends and family!

God wants us to serve Him. Faith in God & Christ. Our bodies are our temples to God, and when we treat our temples with love and nuturing, God will reward us as we reward ourselves with a better and healthier lifestyle!
