Hi everyone,
My name is Lisa 26, mommy to Carter-16 months and wife to Mike 27. We've been married and saved for four years now. I found your forum through the Fireproof your marriage ads that have been going on in my PR. This couldn't have come at a better time for us. My husband and I have always been the best of friends but lately we just seem so distant from one another. Nothing major has happend, just the added stress of parenthood and of course financially its a terrible time for most.

I'm really excited to start the program and so is DH. We participated in the 40 days of purpose group through our church before the baby was born and that was a life changing experience for all of us! I hope to join your forum as well. Long story short our church fell apart for unfortunate reasons It's been very hard for me and we haven't been to church in a long time. I really know that Jesus is missing from our lives and I am working very hard to find my way back again.

Hopefully you won't mind an extra person in your group

Welcome Lisa. I'm sorry about your church. It's always hard when something like that happens.

I just got the book purpose driven life. I'm going to do it privately once the Love Dare Challenge is wrapped up.

It's very nice to meet you.

Hello & to the group!!! I'm Amanda, wife to Mike (too ) & mom to Austin & an angel. Feel free to add yourself/family to our birthday/anniversary stickie above!

Not sure if you are interested but I absolutely adore Beth Moore's Believing God Bible study. It brought me so close to God & really strengthed my faith in Him. I thought maybe it could help you too! It's an online study... LifeWay: Beth Moore : Believing God

BTW, Carter is adorable! Can't wait to get to know you better!

Thanks for all the nice welcomes

m and a-Purpose driven life is AWESOME! We actually held a small study group at our house with it! I just loved it! I think it's one of those studies that you should do every year because it's so powerful! I'm so excited to do the love dare! I'm surprised I haven't heard of it sooner! I netflixed Fireproof and watched the trailers last night! It looks like an awesome movie! I ordered the couples bundle on amazon and I can hardly wait for DH and I to start it! My DH and I do so much for our little man I think we forget the best thing that we can do for him is to model a good marriage! The church falling apart really took a toll on us. We started that church right before we were married. I never grew up with the love of Christ and I knew it was something I wanted for my marriage and future family. We became so very close with the church and when it fell apart I really felt like a child in the middle of a divorce. It was really disheartening and I won't lie, I really feel like since that time I've lost touch with God. Thank God for Jesus and forgiveness though

Amanda-Thanks for the link! I think I will check it out after the fireproofing series! Thanks for the nice comments about my little man! He's a very sweet child but he's definately a very strong willed child (not sure where that came from )

I too look forward to fellowship with you all

HI Lisa!

Welcome!
I'm Kristianna, married to Rajeev and mom to Anaiah Grace.

Sorry to hear about your church. I find it so heartbreaking to hear when churches break up. You are right, it always feels like a family that just had a divorce and no one know who to trust and follow. (Happend to my church too once)

BTW you have an adorable little man!
