    I know that we have done this before and that many of you have introduced yourselves in the welcome forum, but I thought it might be fun to do it again since we have so many new people on the Board.

    And my memory is not as great as it used to be and I am embarrassed when I can't remember someone.

    Remember that this is a public place so be careful how much you reveal about yourself.

    I will begin:

    I am a wife, mother grandmother, teacher, artist, and musician.

    I was married to my first husband (deceased) for 34 years and have been married to my darling Ed (who is also on this Board) for two years.

    We have four children, two sons and two daughters
    (my daughter is deceased). Seven grandchildren with another on the way. Baby son of 21 is a junior in college.

    Am retired from a state agency and currently church organist.

    My most important ministry now is my family.

    I love my Lord and Savior with all my heart and try to set an example of Christian love to others. In addition to my family, I have a group of ladies (mostly widows) oil paint weekly in my home.

    Your turn......

    I am a wife and mother of 4. I am a stay at home mom and thankful to the Lord I am givin that opportunity. I have a wonderful husband that works very hard to give me what I want in life and that is to start to homeschool my 3 yr old son.
    I have two 16 yr olds, one 10 yr old and one 3 yr old.

    When I did work I was in retail for a major pharmacy chain.
    I live in NJ but wished I didn't. I go to the best church in the world and I like to read, photography, computers and I build websites. I sell Avon from my home and am just enjoying life and God.

    I'm married to a wonderful godly man and we have 3 daughters(I hope more soon ;) )I am a stay at home mother and have been since my first was born. I was a public school teacher before first baby. I homeschool my 2 older daughters. I'm very grateful to God for allowing me to be home with my children,also. It is a great blessing!

    I enjoy reading,cooking,jogging,and home decorating.

    Although we homeschool,we are on the go a lot,too...my girls are involved in ballet,sports,and violin...we do a lot together as a family...we love to hike,rock climb,and even just walk around the block together. Our morning are full with math,writing,grammar,etc...but our afternoons are always great fun.

    That's all about me!

    I am married, for 26 years, to Justified. We have 12 children, three at home with the Lord. My oldest is 20, youngest is 2. I homeschool 5, at the moment, and have been homeschooling for 15 years.

    I came to know the Lord 16 years ago. I have been studying and reading the Bible for just as many years, after an unsaved neighbor that I was witnessing to asked if I had ever read thru the Bible, front to back. I was almost a JW, but the Lord pulled me out after studying with them for almost three years. I had started a ministry witnessing to JW's, but moved from that area, and to another church. I have also started several chidren's groups, Bible study groups, and was Sunday school teacher to 2yr-8th graders.

    I was born in Illinois, married and moved to Wisconsin. After living there for 24 years, we made a big mistake and moved to Jersey. As my life seemed to be crumbling around me, the Lord lifted me once again, and has given me a wonderful church to worship him in. I can look back and see how He has allowed me to grow once again.

    Since being here in Jersey, I was introduced to the BB, and have made several friends here. And though we have moved 8 times in the past two years, I have, I think, found a place to rest in, with many new Christian friends.

    I am an artist, love to paint, make banners for churches, gardening, and cooking. I love the old ways, making things from scratch. I also prefer home remedies and natural approaches to health and living. I love to travel, camp, and go hiking. I play the oboe, clarinet, flute, sax, and play some piano.

    Greetings to all and Happy New Year! I am a 35 y/o man, originally from the great state of Texas. Now living in Jersey. Blech! Married to a bodacious woman and we have a litter of 4 kids, ages 3-16 years old, and my wife is preparing to homeschool the youngest. My wife and I are serving the Lord in a wonderful church, which is the only reason we're still in NJ. I'm driving trucks for a living and in the off-time hanging out with the wife and kids, playing the sax and trying to learn piano. Pray for me.

    Hi! I'm CJ and I'm a Christian! (Hello, CJ!) My real name is computerjunkie, but my friends call me CJ...much easier to type!

    I am single, never married, and very content with where God has me at this point in my life!

    I am active in my church, in fact so active, I WORK there! I worked in the business world for many years, and about 5 years ago, God led me into another area of employment. I work for the Senior Pastor at a large church in the area. It is extremely hard work...MUCH harder than just attending church on Sunday's and Wednesday's!

    When I am not working, I enjoy reading, stitchery, classical music (love the Ft. Worth and Dallas symphony orchestras), Christian music, football (Texas Longhorns and Dallas Cowboys...although neither team made exciting headlines this year :( ), eating out and visiting with friends, cooking (my specialty is desserts [​IMG] ), and just relaxing by doing nothing (a total waste of time, but sometimes necessary and extremely enjoyable).

    I am born and raised Texan! [​IMG] Years ago, I lived in Chicago for a year, and Philadelphia for 6 months. The winters were atrocious! It was then that I realized I am a Texan and needed to come home! [​IMG]

    Both of my wonderful parents are at home with the Lord now. I have a great brother and sil who live not too far from me (relatively speaking), and we see each other often. We're a small family, but we're fun!! [​IMG]

    I'm sure I'll think of more stuff to say after I hit "Add Reply", but for now, I guess that's about it!

    CJ

    Well, I am a military spouse and mother to a four year old daughter. We have been stationed at: Fort Bragg (HOme of the 82nd Airborne!), Schofield Barracks, HI, Fort Benning, GA and now we are back at Schofield! I was raised in Plymouth, MA as a Catholic, but I have been baptised and have attended Baptist churches since 2000. I am considering homeschooling my daughter, but the "career" women I know are discouraging me! I love pets and photography. I like a good sense of humor, and I love GOD.

    I have been married for 6 years to an awesome man. We have to small children, ages 5 and 4 (only 10.5 months apart). I am originally from NorthEast PA. I joined the Air Force where I met my husband and we settled in Maryland after I seperated from the military. I was raised Catholic and didn't know Jesus. I met Jesus for the first time when I was attending Baptist services, and gave my life to him on April 26, 2003, and was baptised this past November. I don't know what else to say so I will stop here.

    God Bless.

    My name is SaggyWoman.

    I am at or near 40, but don't look it, act it, or want to be it.

    I am on staff at my church as the minister to chldren.

    I am single, and never have been married. If I am ever to be married, I have found the man, but he hasn't connected yet. But, at the rate I am going, it won't happen.

    I have been a Christian since I was 11.


    I don't mind not being married, as long as I get the attention I need.

    I just bought my first house in August.

    I drive a Honda

    Hello. I am TaterTot. I am married to a pastor and a PhD student (Greek/NewTestament). They are really great. (haha!) For real, though, my husband and I have two toddlers (girls) that are 16 months apart. The oldest will be THREE om Sunday. I cant believe how fast they grow up! I am a stay at home mama, but I do lead music and youth at our little country church.
    I have a BA in music and Spanish and a Masters in Church music as well. I teach private piano and voice lessons from my home.
    Before we had muchkins, we served through the US-2 program of the North American Mission Board in resort missions. It was awesome. It was during those three years that our "alter" personalities were born - in the form of clowns. My clown name is TaterTot, thus my BB nickname. We used to clown semi-professionally, but now we just do it occasionally.
    We have two dogs, a rabbit, 3 fish and as of today, one turtle. Most were gifts from our church members, including the new turtle, named Cinderella.

    Hi All, [​IMG]
    I am 25 and have lived in central NY all my life.
    I was saved when I was 18, and have attended Baptist churches since I was 3.
    I married this past July (in fact today is our 6 month anniversary!!)
    I was a receptionist for over 3 1/2years and just quit in Oct. due to the drive...and I miss it terribly. I am currently job hunting.

    My husband and I are presently living in his aunt and uncle's home, waiting while our apartment is renovated.

    I have three cats, two of which will coming with us to our new place. I am an avid knitter, love to play the piano, I love fishing...especially on the St. Lawrence River. I also love to do baking, and Saturday morning breakfasts with my husband.
    I garden (especially roses!) and like to study my bible.

    Hugs,
    ~SeaFlower~

    I'm Wanita from a small farming town in eastern Nebraska. My husband's a pastor of a small church - 40 people on a good Sunday. We have 4 children aged 15 to 20, three girls and a boy. We are all an active part of my husband's ministry. Praise the Lord - our children are all Christians and serving God.

    My favorite sport to watch is football - especially the Denver Broncos. I love to play basketball. I have always been a stay-at-home mom. Now I work for Newsbowl, USA from my computer at home. My favorite food is lasagne, pizza, tacos, burritos, etc. I'm sure that Heaven will be filled with Mexican and Italian food. [​IMG] I love to read in my spare time, which is usually the last hour of the day that I'm awake. My favorite animal is a cat, but we do have the world' best dog. At this time of year, one of my favorite pasttimes is watching my girls play high school basketball. Go Bulldogs!

    I'm Malissa I just celebrated the 3rd anniversary of my 29th bday in Nov--I have been married for 5 1/2 yrs and have a precious 3 yr old little boy who just the other day said "I need a baby Hannah at my house" and is now praying for her and collecting baby things when we shop :confused:

    I grew up in a Baptist pastor's house (funny story I came over here looking for some Baptist history info in Dec I think and while reading posts read one and thought "my dad would like this guy" then I read some more posts and the same person posted again and I thought that again then all of a sudden I said "wait a minute this IS my dad [​IMG] ) I was saved when I was 4 1/2 and currently teach SS for a group of little girls, play the piano at church, help with Bible club.

    I own a children's resale store and take my little guy along every day--

    I like to read, garden, scrapbook, and play on the puter! (in my "spare"time)

    I probably won't post here a ton because I have some other places I love to hang out but I just today figured out that this forum isn't password protected [​IMG] it's the private one that is--else I'd have posted here before :D

    Hi! I'm Audrey, I'm 19 and engaged to a wonderful man.. (we've almost settled on a wedding date..) [​IMG]

    As you can probably tell from the time of this post, I'm a total insomniac [​IMG]

    I'm a mother to two adorable puppies, ages 10 1/2 months, and 3 1/2 months (Everyone else got to talk about their kids, but I don't have any.) [​IMG]

    I've been saved since I was 11. I recently moved, and am in the process of searching out a new church home, but in my previous church, I was co-director of the Jr. High choir, and taught a 3rd - 6th grade girls Sunday school class.

    I live in Southern IL, right at the Indiana border, but I'm originally from Chicago.

    I like: (love) my fiance and my dogs, basketball, ice skating, reading, scrapbooking and crafty stuff in general, rose gardening, and spending time with my 2 adorable neices. [​IMG]

    And that's me. :D
