I just started working with a woman at my church so she can teach me how to become a better Christian & become closer to Jesus. Guess that was a little more information than what you asked for, I’m much better at writing out my thoughts & interests than talking about them.
    Have a blessed day everyone 🙂

I educate and care for medically fragile children. One of whom is my oldest grandson Andrew. He was born with an extremely rare genetic disorder.. a neuromuscular syndrome so rare that there is no documented research of any child surviving past 3 months old. The Lord has blessed us with Andrew’s strength and undying spirit. Although he cannot move other than slight movements of hands and feet, he can move his head a bit and communicates using an eye gaze computer. He just turned 5 and is cognitively age level. He is inspiring and blessed. I lost two of my students this year to the medical issues of their rare genetic disorders so I truly do cherish every moment. I love and miss my little Jayla and Eddie! Thanks for letting me share all this with you! Hope life in West Virginia is less stressful in a less stressful way! Please share a little more about yourself…

    • Carmen, I pray that as you read this book and participate in this study you will see how valuable you are to God and grow in His unconditional love and grace and come to find peace and happiness and confidence in Him. He WILL fill your cup to overflowing. He did mine and He loves you just as much!

    • Hi Carmen, just wanted to say that while you are single, you are not alone. Your life is important and it is beautiful to God. I think we’re all good at pretending everything is fine but God has a way of reaching to the heart of the matter. I’m glad you are part of this group. It seems to be a good place to strengthen that foundation you have in the Lord. I’m sure this community will be praying for you in this study. I know I will. May God bless you and touch your life today.

    • Mary Ann says:

      Welcome to the group Carmen. Please know that you are not alone in this group and you have so many of us that are willing to pray for you. I am praying for you as I type. Your life is very important because God made you in his image. You are loved by HIM and HE is always there with you. Hopefully, you will reach out to us and allow us to help you in whatever way we can. I’m glad you signed up with this group. I’m sure you will get so much out of it.

    • Hi Carmen…My name is Cindy and I live in Oklahoma. So happy you decided to join the group, or should I say “family”. We are all sisters in the Lord. Being single can be so hard sometimes. I have been a widow for fifteen years now. But have found that opening up our hearts to our Lord can fill a void that no one or nothing else can possibly fill. Please know you are not alone, and as our other precious sisters have already said, YOU are IMPORTANT to GOD, and to us! Keep trusting. God Never Fails!!!
