I accepted the Lord as my Savior when I was 21 years old. That was like 38 years ago, wow! But I am still amazed at the sacrifice Christ made on the cross - for me. A sinner, saved by the grace of God alone!

hi all, i'm new to the team, but not sparkpeople. my name is lynn and i'm divorced and i am the mother of a handsome 17 yr old boy. you can see pics of him and i in my photo gallery. I AM VERY PROUD OF HIM. HE IS THE REASON I GO ON, BESIDES GOD OF COURSE. i'm 44 and very overweight. i recently went off the wagon of believing in god, by that i mean my faith was shaken for about a week. now god is my reason for my happiness, with my wonderful family and all also. i don't do devotions very well, but being part of this team may just help me get better at it. i at least spend a few moments in my day with nature and things too. with summer right around the corner i plan to spend more time with god's pretty world......thank you for allowing me to join the team............lynn

Hi my name is Jill or you can call me survivor. Why survivor? Well let's just say that with the grace of our Great and Beautiful God I literally would not be here. God has saved my life and given me a fresh start many years ago. I truly love Him and His Precious Son beyond comprehension. I hope to find a Christian home here on this team. Thank you Your sister in Christ Jesus Jill

Hi! I joined this team a while ago but don't think I introduced myself. I'm doing the Eden Diet, which is a non-diet diet aimed at, but not exclusively for, Christians. Since starting Eden, I'm 14 days happily diet free and binge free! :-)
My name is Peggy & I am from the Denver, Colorado area. I joined this team because of the name of this team. We have to always call on Christ for everything! My husband & I have been married for 6 years (that was in July) & we have 1 cat & a puppy. I have 3 grown children & 3 grown step children. We have lots of grandchildren & a few great grandchildren. I would have to sit down & count them all.

I AM MY FATHERS DAUGHTER . THE BRIDE OF CHRIST .. JESUS IS MY LORD AND SAVIOR
I am from Ohio. I have lived in several different states. I am a taking one day at a time with God to help me through this weight loss journey. I have learned that it is not about weight loss so much as it is trusting Him with my needs instead of turning to food. I love Jesus and He truly is my best friend. I have a wonderful husband, 2 sons and a step son. I am an Interpreter for the Deaf and very active in my church.
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.
I am a new Christian...always believed in Jesus but never realized that our LORD and Savior was actually active in our lives. I thought we had to be good (raised Catholic) and that we would see Jesus if we got to go to heaven but I didn't know how it really was. I was blind and lost for too many years....making mistakes and digging myself into a major dark pit.
When I decided to take a leap of faith and move to the West coast I was brought to a Christian church where the Holy Spirit opened my eyes and I found out how truly active GOD is in the here and now! GOD saved this wretch from a terrible darkness....still have a lot to learn though so I am constantly looking for people that love the LORD and can help me learn more....
Want to build a strong relationship with Jesus and I want to be a woman after GOD's own heart like David!
The peace I find in praising the LORD and in worship is like having a peace of heaven in my heart!
Looking forward to what I can learn here about our Savior and to share in our journey to a healthier temple!
I choose to succeed with a positive attitude all things are possible! Hugs

Hi to all! I sort of "stumbled" over this site.....but of course God led me here :) I am 50 and a "Young / Old" pastor in TN. Young because I have been in full time vocational ministry for 8 years after spending 20 in business. Called to vocational ministry at 40 (WHAT a mid-life crisis) then seminary, etc. My life is (in this order) - My God, My wife, My two beautiful teens (daughter Micah and son Trey), The Body of Christ. I have been on this new journey (part of my repentance for years of gluttony)....I have surrendered this nutrition and exercise "thing" to God! Blessings in Christ to you all!
