Hobbies/Interests: being a mom to my 2 beautiful kids
Maybe how you met Jesus, who led you to him: Wow what a loaded question...I was born LDS. I "defected" at 18. And quickly got into the occult. My daughter was born in 04. She ultimately led me to God and the Savior. I was baptised PCoG church. I moved from the area we were in. Got into the wrong church.....bad sect of which I won't name. That tinted my view on Christianity. I've struggled w/ Mormonism (almost reverting twice) and paganism. Up til recently. Found a good AG church I like and I haven;t looked back since.

a little bit of my testimony
(taken from a post i made on http://www.godlygals.com/board
I have been hesitant to bring this up, but I did want to share this with you ladies. I guess I've never really shared my testimony, and this is a pretty large part of it. It was at this point in my life that I felt God steering me in a clear direction. Anyway. Here goes.
When I was a sophomore in high school it became really clear that I was not fitting into the same mold my friends were. So many that claimed to be Christians were falling away from their faith or it was becoming clear that they hadn't had any to begin with. I was really alienated and ridiculed for standing up for my faith and morals in general. It was a tough time. Most of my emotions I kept pent up and began to fall into deep depression. My life was completely different. I had no one to turn to. My friends were participating in activities regularly that I knew, as a child of God, I had no business being a part of. I desired their friendships again, but not the situations I would have to put myself through to have that. I praise God for giving me the strength to stand up during all of that. He is the only reason I didn't fall. Now, these were my school friends. Since I went to church in a different town it made school life and church life two completely different worlds (which is a story all its own). At the same time, the few friends I had in the youth group at church began ignoring me. This included my best friend. It was traumatizing.( Read more...Collapse )
Anyway, I really wanted to share that. Only a few other people know about this because I am not sure how I feel about telling this to people. I just want to thank God for allowing me to do this tiny amount of work for His kingdom. GodlyGals
!) has been such a blessing to me and to many of the girls who have become a part of it. We all devote our time to helping around there so that even just one person might be reached for Christ. As time goes on, it is easy to see that God has this ministry in His hand and that there is a plan for it.

The Face of Jesus
cross-posted to godly_galsAuthor: Elisabeth Elliot
Source: A Lamp For My Feet
The Face of Jesus
The face of Jesus:
marred more than any man--
the beard plucked,
twisted in pain--
For my salvation.
A glorious face, now.
Let its light shine on me, O Light of Life.
Let Your radiance fall on me, Sun and Savior,
Lighten my darkness.
Then grant me this by Your grace:
That I, in turn, may give
"The light of the knowledge of the glory of God" (2 Cor 4:6 AV)
As I see it in the face of Jesus Christ.

Hobbies/Interests: Abstract art, theology, mythology (specifically celtic mythology), my children
Maybe how you met Jesus, who led you to him: my daughter, here is the link to my testimony: http://ravenous-enigma.livejournal.com/3504.html
Lately to be honest I've been struggling with my old life...and life in general. So I need to surround myself with positive people who love the Lord.
EDIT: sorry I realized my LJ is friends only, so I'm going to post the entry itself....( Read more...Collapse ) Current Mood: sick

First name: Lee V.Z.
Hobbies/Interests: reading the Bible/Christian books, sci fi/fantasy, gardening, knitting, cooking, cleaning, Disney Princesses, and just resting.
Maybe how you met Jesus, who led you to him: I used to be a witch (aaagggghhhh!) and a bisexual. The first was worse to me than the other. I really did some horrible things to people, and i actually brought up demons.
That's aside the point. I also used to dress like 80's Madonna, with all the crosses. One day, i just picked up a crucifix and i felt something MOVE within me, as if i regretted all i had ever done.
And before long, i was devouring the Bible and telling my witchy friends good-bye. I feel much better now, and good things are happening to me.
Anything else you feel is relevant: Well...my mother's an atheist. and that, my friends, is awful.
Also, i found an Assembly of God church right up the street from me--walking distance--and it's like God put it there!!!!!
God bless you all.

In a recent devotional by Elisabeth Elliot, she listed 8 questions to ask before a church should decide to boot out a pastor.(taken from godly_gals and GodlyGals boards)
"Before we take such a position of sovereignty, assuming we know the root of the trouble and are warranted in enforcing our "solution," might we not ask ourselves a few questions? (I do not refer here, of course, to cases which unequivocally call for dismissal, such as immorality or heresy.)
1. Who called this pastor? Was it the bishop? The church? Was the decision prayed over? Do we believe in the Holy Spirit's guidance?
2. Do we understand the shepherd of the flock to be one who bears responsibility and authority? "Encourage and rebuke with all authority" was the apostle Paul's word to a young shepherd (Titus 2:15, NIV). To Timothy he said, "Command and teach" (1 Timothy 4:11, NIV). "Obey your leaders and submit to their authority...so that their work will be a joy, not a burden" (Hebrews 13:17, NIV). Have we respected that divine assignment?( Read more...Collapse )

Hi everyone! I was searching through some interests and this community came up. I thought this would be a great place share the following with you. (Mods, if there is anything wrong with me posting this, please let me know and I'll delete it. My aim isn't to upset anyone...just trying to fellowship with other believers!)
My name is Liz and I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you all about an online ministry geared toward young women. It's called GodlyGals. We've had a community here on lj for some time now (godly_gals
), but now things are getting started in other areas. Our message board is up (http://godlygals.com/board
) and very soon we will have our online magazine going (http://godlygals.com
- nothing there yet!).
We discuss current events, issues that are a concern, dating, health, and lots of other things that are deemed appropriate. Soon we will also have a Bible study, book club, prayer list, and lots of discussion over Biblical topics. We need people to join and help us build this ministry!
God has laid it on my heart to minister to young women and I am using the talents he has given me and the avenues he has opened for me to do so. I would really appreciate you taking a look at what we have and becoming a part of what I truly believe is something that will bring glory to God. Thank you!

Hey! Y'all, too?!?
Hiya. I'm Lori. I'm 28 and I've been in the Assemblies for almost 15 years. I live in Walnut Cove, North Carolina but my church, Faith Assembly, is in Kernersville. I came to Christ at youth camp when I was fourteen. I wasn't raised in the church at all except that I went to VBS every summer. I won't mention any denominational names, but it was evangelistically pretty weak in hindsight. I enjoy music, movies, ice cream, Christmas, and hockey. Wait. I just realized that three of those are cold. I wonder what that says about me. Hmm. Anyhoo, I'm in college studying to be a psychologist and I work at Curves, a fitess facility for women. I also have one of the best dogs in the world. His name is Beagley. Oddly enough, he's a beagle. I'm trying to think of anything else that might be interesting and, honestly, I can't see anything I've written so far that would qualify as intersting. I guess I'll just end here, then. Have a wonderful day and I'll see you all later! Current Mood: contemplative
