Hi...wow...guess I'm not the only girl looking for the elusive single Christian man... where oh where could they be hiding? lol

I'm 30, I live at home with my parents in GA. I also went to college hoping to find a husband ...needless to say that just wasn't God's plan. Still looking though!

- Don't follow where the path may lead...go where there is no path & leave a trail
- The hardest thing about riding...is the ground
- Dogs have owners... Horses have staff
- Horses are God's apology for men ;)
- Riding is good for the Soul

HI Ladies,

I just joined tonight and want to say thanks for a site that I really think God brought me to. I hear alot of similar values in regards to relationship and dating here and am excited to have found this team.

I am Lisa, my friends call me Leese and I have been single now for going on 4 years in January. Wow....I just added that up and it hit me. I am a single mom of 3 and from Michigan.

Hey, LOVECHRISTMAS23! How's it going? I can totally relate with the not liking how you look in pictures. My brother is getting married at the end of the month, and I don't even want to THINK about how I'm going to look in those pictures!

Hi, LOVECHRISTMAS23! Welcome! My name is Janet, what is yours? I certainly know what you mean. I recently saw a picture that made me gasp and MY sister is getting married in a year! She just got engaged. I am sure I can meet my goal before that time and it just adds something else to be motivated by when I don't feel like working out or planning my healthy meals. I want to be comfortable in my skin on her big day.

Hey guys! Just wanted to say hello! I am 23 years old and definitely single, but really wanting that to change.. :) My sister actually got married two months ago - and part of the reason I joined is because of how big I look in the pictures (gasp!). Don't want to look like that on my big day!

Anyways, I loved this team because it wasn't massive and I felt like you guys might understand a little of what I was saying.

And-Shelly, I love this site too. I actually read about it in Good Housekeeping and it's been great for helping me find a place where I can find motivation and encouragement.

Ok I might be wrong about the 20 mins. It has been know to happen. I have been here for a few months. I love this site. No one here is judgemental. Everyone here thinks you can acheive your goal. No one looks at you with that "yeah right" look when you say you wnat to lose more than 100 lbs. They just love you for who you are and all off you. Every extra inch. Thank God for them. I will check out your teams. Good luck to you. We should have lunch sometime.keep in touch.

Well ladies, first of all I want to say HI to Janet. WE have actually been myspace buddies for awhile now. We live about 20 minutes away from each other. Small world, huh. So, I just wanted to say that I have been single and Christian for 5 years now. I am truly waiting on the Lord, and growing in the process. I am also a single mom. My son is 9. I was married for 2 years to his father.

Yes, I agree with you. Very good point. We're on the same page. I have only dated Christian men because I know that the Lord wants me to marry a Christian. It's tough for us girls to find a good man who is compatible AND is a Christian! Whew. We have to soldier on though... oops, pun not intended here. ;-) emoticon

Hey READY4CHG777! So glad to have you! Slowly but surely we're growing in numbers...no boys yet...ha ha...story of my life, right?

Yeah, when I was looking for Christian Support teams, I didn't see any that invited both genders. I think we as girls can learn a lot from the boys--it's always great to get their perspective. And it's just amazing to me (as I recently noticed) how the perspective of a Christian guy is just so different (and so much more appealing to me!) than the perspective of a non-Christian guy. I guess the same can be said of us girls (hopefully!)

Thanks for creating this team! I needed it myself. I was looking for teams to belong to that fit my interests. I had already singed up for Christian teams and then noticed there were teams for people in the dating world. I clicked that one and noticed this one which is the best fit for me. What a great name; that's what first caught my eye! I read your story and it was so inspirational. This is a really small team but I still joined and I have every hope that others will join and see the value in it! Thanks again!

Being the creator of this forum, I am writing this in hopes that there will shorty be other members who will be reading it. If not, I'll have a lot of fun reading all by myself for a while, I guess.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself and why I started this spark team.

I grew up in a small town in North Dakota. I was raised by strong Christian parents, and my faith was pretty important to me. I was a totally boy crazy teenager and I couldn't wait to go to college. I went to the North Dakota college that had the best guy-to-girl ratio...figured I'd go off to college and find myself some nerdy engineer and die happy. Ha ha...God had other plans, though. I joined the National Guard two weeks before 9/11, and a year later I was in Iraq. I spent a year over there, basically throwing away all of my morals and values in the process. I came home, still pretty messed up, gained some weight, and finally decided something had to change. It's been a process, but I've turned back to God and I thank Him daily for His grace and forgivness in my life.

Recently, I've started to encounter people who have more in common with me now than my old friends. I met a guy that my mom works with and we e-mailed for quite a while this past winter. He was wonderful. For whatever reason, this e-mail relationship didn't turn into anything more, but just that simple interaction with this Christian man opened my eyes. There must be other great quality guys who love God out there just like him. And I couldn't help but wonder if there are other girls out there like me who are just waiting for guys like that. Are there guys out there who are searching for us? And so I decided to start this team--not necessarily as a match-making device, but as a way to get to know members of both genders who share a Christian faith and Christian value. I want this team to be a place where we can go to, not only meet new people, but to encourage one another, provide constructive advice, and bolster each other in our relationship with the Lord.

I look forward to getting to know each of you. emoticon
