Hello All! My name is Kim and I am not necessarily new to Spark, but new to the commitment I now have. My spiritual birthday was 7 years ago, this February and I love the Lord so much. The past 2 years have been pretty rough on my Christian walk as I have let everything else come between me and my faith. My husband and I are very commited to Christ and want nothing else than to see my 16 year old daughter accept Christ into her life. We know the only way this will happen is if we continue to take her to church. We pray together daily as a family and it seems to keep us closer together and more connected. I decided to join this group as another form of Christian fellowship and encouragement.

I am 36 years old, an ex drug addict and alcoholic, and I have about 115 pounds to lose..... I am doing well so far and I am happy with the results, but as I'm sure everyone else understands - I wish they were a little quicker to show. My one big vice is my habit of smoking - I just can't give it up and I ask my fellow believers to pray for my healing from this nasty addiction. Please feel free to add me as a friend....

In His Love,

Kim

I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me!

Hello brothers & sisters; and fellow sparkers! I'm new to the team; but I've been on SP since 2008. They've changed my life. Since then I've also had the biggest spiritual growth and changes in my life. I need more Christian content in my SP experience. I had a bad experience this week on here though. I'm 'sorta' a new writer. I've only been writing seriously for a few years. I have a blog site of my own where I write devotional articles based on my own journey toward God. Until this week, I shared each message through a link with each of the teams I was on. I got a message saying that I wasn't allowed to share them anymore. Someone was offended over the Christian content and reported me. I hope that someone who was not a Christian could be led to Christ with my messages, but it seems I will have to stick with Christian teams from now on. I hope that you will be open to sharing in my joy with me as I write my way through my journey toward God. I would love to share my articles; and post the links, if you are open to it. I'm a little apprehensive now about sharing, but I know God is with me always.

Hello all! I am Cassandra. I am a stay-at-home mom of 2 who homeschools. I have about 35 lbs to lose and I have been around Spark People for awhile, but am new to this team. I am excited to find a place that I can share my faith and have people help me be accountable. I am really working hard to shed the world and put on more of Christ. I have really been working to change my attitude, spirit, and focus to the LORD and not on me and am realizing that is a major job, but with God it is possible. I am looking forward to getting to know you all!

God Bless You!

Cassandra

Hi everyone! :)

My name is Tracy and I'm not technically new to SparkPeople, but I have been away for quite a while. It's good to be back... I've enjoyed today... looking thru all my "old" friends' pages and posts, resetting goals, and just enjoying the feeling of "getting organized" once again. It's a bit bitter-sweet, I must admit, that my old group is gone. We had a great group, full of encouragment, strong enough to keep eachother accountable, and all incredible women of faith in Jesus! BUT... the sweet part of this is that I will now have the opportunity to meet new people and make new friends... and I'm excited about that!

Hope you all are having a great weekend. I look forward to "meeting" you all :)






Live your life in a way so that those who don't know God but know you come to know God because they know you!

I found this team by accident (but I should say that it was not by acccident because we are always guided by the Lord). I am 60 years young, as my doctor would say. I have two girls and one boy, with nine grandchildren two girls and seven boys. I really struggle with trying to lose weight, satan is always there prompting me to eat things I like but shouldn't eat. A lot of my health issues make this even more difficult. I know that I will have these for the rest of my life and just need to turn it over to my Savior.

Isaiah 41:10 fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Hi, my name is Susan, and I'm SO happy to find this team! I've lost weight, but my biggest challenge is having Jesus change my thoughts and heart about food. I long to be completely His--body, mind, soul and strength! Losing the weight is the easy part, having a renewed mind that sets my affections on things above--well, that's quite another story! Looking forward to being united for His purposes! {{{{hugs}}}}

Hi my name is Brenda and I'm 24 years old. My ultimate goal is to lose 150lbs. I have struggled with weight my entire life and have tried unsuccessfully many times to lose weight. I grew up in the Christian faith (my grandfather is a pastor) but after high school I stopped going to church and distanced myself from God. I went through a lot of crazy things and I finally hit rock bottom and realized that I would never achieve anything without the Lord in my life. I'm happy to say that I've found my way back to God and I know that with Him by my side I can do anything, including losing this weight and becoming a better person. The R831 in my screen name is for the bible verse Romans 8:31 "What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?"

-Brenda

Everyday is an opportunity to be better than you were yesterday.

Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand. - Psalm 37:24

Hi, I'm am a Christian mother of four. I need to loose 150. We homeschool,have a dairy goat farm,and we run my parents rv park. We make our own soap, shampoo,lip balm and lotion from our goatmilk. We also make butter,cheese,sourceam ,yogurt,creamcheese, and of coarse cream out of our goatmilk. We raise our own meat and eggs and have a garden. It all keeps us pretty busy.

I Corinthians 13..."...Love is patient,love is kind.It does not envy,it does not boast,it is not proud. It is not rude,it is not self-seeking,it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evilbut rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts,a/ways hopes, always preserveres.
Love never fails..."
And now these three remain faith,hope, and love. but the greatest of these is love"
