I just joined this team. I like the idea of introducing myself you and that you all did the same thing. That made me feel welcome.

I am a 45 year old woman that has been married for 25 years and I have a daughter who is almost 23 and she has 2 beautiful little girls that I just adore. I have a son who is almost 13 and he makes me smile all the time. I had one other daughter who died in 2003 of liver cancer and that has been the worst thing imaginable that can happen to a parent. If not for the help of my church family I don't think I would have made it through.

I do need support now as my brother n law who was 42 just passed away on February 8th and I have slipped into old habits of stress eating.

It's been a little bit, but I thought I'd chime in!

My name is Del, and I am 28-almost 29-years old. I am married to a wonderful 'Pookie', and in May we will celebrate 3 years (I am still a newlywed, and we act like it!). I live in South Central VA, and I am an office specialist for a social services agency.

I have been a member of SparkPeople since December of 2007. I have not done as well as I would have liked - I fell off the wagon a bit but keep praying for me - I am truly fighting the good fight of faith!

Be blessed!

"With long life...YOU will satisfy me, YOU will satisfy me; with long life - I will praise you forever, only YOU can satisfy!"

Hi my name is Dorothy, I'm 49 in about 3 weeks I will be 50. I have been married to my husband for 27 years soon to be 28 in March. I have two children, a girl 27 and a boy 22. I also had a little girl that if she had lived she would be 31 years old but she is with the Lord. I will see her one day and that is when I die or when I go at the rapture. Which ever comes first.

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

Hello everyone my name is Michelle. I've been on spark people for about a month and I really enjoy it. I have a wonderful husband and three beautiful children(ages 11, 9, and 6) I am a Christian. My husband is a preacher and I am a youth worker at our church. I've been married for thirteen years, and I'm a stay at home mom. I've been home schooling my children for the past three years.

Have a blessed day,
Michelle

A hug is a great gift......
One size fits all. It can be given for any occasion and it can be easily exchanged.

Hi everyone. My name is Mary, I'm the 2nd oldest of 6. My brothers and sisters and I are the closest as you can get. We have yet to meet a set of siblings as close as we are. We are literally each others best friends. I'm married to my wonderful husband Rick for almost 6 years (in May). We have 2 awesome children Monica is 13 and Ricky is 2 and #3 is on the way. Due July 23, 2008. I'm 17 weeks today. We have one dog, Titus who is 10 years old (70 in dog years!) I'm a SAHM going on 2.5 years now. Up until then I worked full time 30-40 hrs. week. We live in Marion, Ohio. I enjoy reading, puzzles, camping, watching reality television, exercise and taking care of my kids. SP was a life saver when I found it back in Aug. '07. They helped me to get back to my pre pregnancy weight before son was born and now are helping me to have a healthy pregnancy. I am a christian, although I don't go to church for personal reasons, I read scripture and pray almost daily. Oh yeah, I'm the newest co-leader on this team. I love it here you guys are great. Better quit now before this turns into a book. lol.

Oh and how could I forget we have 4 cats or should I say, they have us, and a golden retriever. The cats own the home, yet they don't make the payments, only if I could get them to do some work around the house (ha ha).

Lost weight due to health. I was close to 200 lbs, then it fell off. That's when I found out that I had several health issues. Trying to get back to a healthly weight so I don't look anorexic. Working hard on a healthly lifestyle.

My name is Pam, I am 46. I am happily married to Doug for almost 8 years. My son John is 12, his real Dad died at age 42. God has really looked after us. I lost my Mom 2 years later after my husband died, then I met Doug, he was like an Angel for John and myself and he is wonderful. I have been a Christian for most of my life and love the Lord and my family and friends. I appreciate life and try to make the best of it.

My name is Lisa,
I'm 42 years old and I'm a ct tech at a hospital in
S.C . I enjoy my job. I meet so many sick people that I can pray with and encourage.
Encouragement is a natural God given gift for me.
I love Sparks i found it back in Oct 07.
I am married , It will be 7 years next month.
I have 4 children. ( 2 are step children).
My older ones are begining to think about marriage.
My daughter still lives at home.
I'm a jack of all trades, which comes in handy for whatever assignment God has for me that day.lol
Prayer is close to my heart.
I guess I get that from my mom.
She has went on to be with the Lord but has passed the torch of intercession and prayer to me.
I will pass it to my daughter!

Edited by: GLORYSEEKER65 at: 2/12/2008 (14:36)
Love Prayers and Blessings

Hello, my name is Carrissa I have a wonderful husband and 2 awesome boys.We are christians. I have been all my life and my husband came to know Christ years ago after much prayer and now he is the youth pastor at our church and I am also a youth leader for age 12-21 and we have about 20 teens there also, and it is steadily growing PRAISE GOD. We started out with 6. We live in South Carolina, where we never see snow and if we do everything closes down. well I am sure there is more but I guess that is all for now. I am glad I am on a journey that God is leading for me to become a new ME. The me He wants me to be, because I can't do it with out HIM.

Also, in posting a summary here, we can encourage our teammates to check out our sparkpages too!

I'm a married (three times) mom and homemaker, age 51 living in SoCal, disabled from a brain & spinal injury, formerly working as a theatre director (younger), financial planner (older), and church secretary (later in life), among other jobs. However, I believe the most important job in my life has been to be a good parent, and now grandparent.

My faith often feels difficult, although I believe wholeheartedly in God's Plan and in prayer. My faith is bolstered by the many wonderful church friends in my life. I know I have been very blessed, and I am very grateful for my wonderful life, especially my family!

Finding Spark has been a life-saver for me in the real world. While intellectually I was faithful and strong, those feelings usually didn't carry over to my inner self and the state of my mind. I still have a long way to go, but my days are often positive now, inside and out. I know that the community on Spark, and my commitment to this program, has made the difference.

Please check out my Sparkpage!

Hello, All. Wow, I think this is a really good idea. Well, my name is Kimberly and I live in N.E. Ohio. I am a Christian, 37 yrs. old, a single parent to a 2 year old girl and by the grace of God, cancer free going on 17 years. I am very close to my parents, my brother, my 2 sisters and my nieces and nephew. I love healthy living, photography, music, reading and road trips. I am long-winded, so I will stop now. emoticon I look forward to getting to know everyone and sharing things with the team about myself...

Peace and Blessings,
Kimber

There are several new ladies and even a new leader. I think that this would be a good way to post something about ourselves so that we can get to know one another better.

Be the best you can be at this very moment and you'll have no regrets.
