Hi Team!

I too found this team on another SP Member's page. It looks like a good place for me to be!

So about me:

I am recently married and looking to better myself and my health for so many reasons! I want to live a long, happy, and fruitful life, and I can't do that if I'm unhealthy. I have lost 40 lbs thus far and looking to lose another 2 sizes (not sure how much or little weight that will be). I enjoy weight training as muscle burns fat!

About my Faith:

I am a newcomer to Faith if you will. I was raised by a young-single mother who had a very hard and difficult life. She believed in God, Jesus, and Heaven; but this wasn't something that we talked about. To her Faith was a personal and private matter, one in which should not be shared.

We celebrated Christmas as it relates to presents and Christmas Trees. We only went to Church once per yr, on Easter. Even then we stood still and did not openly pray or sing. I was raised with a fear of organized religion and rebelled against anyone who included "God" into a conversation. I was told that in essence Religion is bad. My aunt who is a minister, herself has issues with churches do to corruption. I still believed and still do in God, but this topic made me very uncomfortable.

It wasn't until a couple of years ago when my mom found a new light within Christianity and Faith. She's completely open to it. I on the other hand, am slowly getting comfortable with this. I pray and believe, but still have issues with openly praising and praying. I feel foolish almost doing so...like I'm going to be badly judged.

With the help of my husband I am slowly coming out of my shell. I loo forward to learning the Bible and getting more comfortable with myself and with my relationship with God. Old habits die hard, but they are slowly changing.

I hope that I can find a ministry or 2 on this team that will help me...help to answer my questions. I look forward to getting to know all of you and learning more about everyone and everything!

Hi I've been with sparks for awhile now. However slowly but surely getting the hang of it. I found this team on a sparks member page. It looked awesome!! and I am struggling with losing weight and I know prayer moves mountains so I was excited when I seen this team dedicated to prayer. I recognized some members from other teams and everyone is so supportive and honestly do care and God's love just flows through them. I am praying that I can be a Blessing to others just as they have been to me.
I have not given up on weight lose however I am hanging on by a thread. So thank you for starting this team emoticon

I had tried that before, but I think people become confused with all the threads to post on. Not sure what the answer is, unless in my welcome letter, I ask them to check in to the chat room and introduce themselves. I was going to try and limit threads to each leaders ministry, the special prayer and praise requests and the chat room, with what is new and coming up...trying to make it easier for new members and old to find what they are looking for. I really don't know what to do to make it easier on our members. Any one have any insight or suggestions, this is everyones team, so fire away!!!!

Love you all

Oh, OK. Well, I was informed that there was a new member who didn't know where to go to introduce herself, so I wanted to make it easy for her, so I started a new one. That's OK isn't it?

Pam, we had one, but no one was posting to it, it is buried in the threads!

It was brought to my attention that there was no thread specifically designed to allow new members to introduce themselves, so that is what this thread is for. So I welcome new members and encourage you to stop by here and introduce yourself and then take a look at all of the other threads available for you to jump right into.
