Hi! My name is Mandy, and I am from Indiana. I have four beautiful children and a wonderful husband. In the past three years alone, my family has faced cancer (twice), death, physical and mental disabilities, and new births. All of these things have brought our family closer to God and each other. After looking through the communities available and not finding one for "Christian moms", I decided that one was needed. Afterall, this is somewhat of a support group for moms, and I know that the best support that I have recieved has been from up above, and I'm not afraid to share my stories of how Christ shows himself in my life and the lives of my children and to try to help others out there to hear and see Him in their lives.

Hello all! My name is Heather and I am from Nebraska. God has blessed my husband and myself with 5 totally amazing children. At one point I had 5 kids, 5 and under. We have had struggles along the way, but when your faith is in God, you can make it through anything! I am a very active member of my church, teach Sunday School, and pray I am a good witness in my community through my words and actions daily! I am excited to interact with fellow Christians!

I've noticed that a few of you are searching for friends or churches. I would love to share with you an amazing thing that I have had the opportunity to be a part of these last 6 years while staying at home with my boys. Community Bible Study. You can check it out at www.CommunityBibleStudy.org This group has provided for me a wonderful Bible study, awesome friends, an opportunity to serve, and the best part is while I am at Bible study, my boys are in a Sunday school-like setting. It's not just baby-sitting. My boys are learning memory verses and singing songs to Jesus and learning so much more about the Bible than I ever did. I love it and it has been such a blessing for our family. I highly recommend checking it out to see if one is near you. If not there is also a BSF Bible study that I have heard of, but have not attended. Bible Study Fellowship is what it stands for. We like to say at CBS that it is a glimpse of what heaven will be like. We do not talk about what church we are from, we just study the Bible. It's great. My boys have also made many friends there. Let me know if you need some help finding one or if you have any questions.

Hi, my name is Tara, I'm in Pinckney, MI. I have 2 wonderful boys, Anthony is 33 months and Brody is 14 months old. We moved out here last year, and still looking for a home church and some christian friends to hang with... I'm a stay at home mom, since I had my oldest son, and my husband works for UofMI hospital.. It was discouraging for us, since we got married actually, that a lot of our friends turned out to be "not so good" of friends anymore... Also, a lot of our family members haven't really been there for us lately (we had an interesting year). So, I hope God blesses us with some good friends, and less drama this coming year... But, God has blessed us sooo much (with my husband's job, I get to stay home with the boys, our health, a great mom...the list goes on)... Talk to you later!!

Hi! We are also from Indiana, I have two boys ages 24 and almost 14, I married my high school sweetheart almost 25 years ago. God has blessed our lives beyond measure, we did not start out a christian home, but God got ahold of us and we have never looked back, this way is soooo much sweeter. We are very active in our church, my husband, our oldest son and our daughter-in-law and myself all work with our Youth group, my oldest son leads a worship band for the youth which our youngest son plays in also. Both of the boys are following and searching for God's will always. And we were informed on Saturday that we are going to be grandparents. A little sooner than I was expecting but there again God has a plan. Hope to get to know all of you a little better. Be Blessed today!

Hi! My name is Jennifer. My family and I live in South Dakota. I have been married to my best friend for almost 17 years. We have two children. Nathaniel is 15 and Rachael is 13. Just like everyone else we struggle at times and have been through some very deep valleys. Almost 3 years ago our daughter was hit, as a pedestrian, by a high school student. She has permanent damage to her growth plate and the emotional and mental scars are almost too much for her to bear at times. But she is my inspiration. I have learned from her to never give up. She says that God spared her life for a reason, she can walk, she can think and do all the things some of her doctors never thought she would. When she is asked how she manages her reply is always "Because my God is faithful and merciful. He has a plan for me that I can't see right now but I know it has to be awesome because I am still here!". My son is amazing as well. He knows what God has called him to do and is walking in the Lord's will.

Thank you so much for starting this group. I am thankful for a new set of friends that I can discuss things with. In our community (which is small) people are pretty close-knit but like to "talk" ALOT.

Hi! I am Denise and I am from Indiana also. I have a wonderful husband and two boys, ages 6 and 3. I am blessed to be a SAHM even though some days are sooo hard. I used to teach 4th grade and I could handle my 28 students, but some days I struggle with my two. Why is that? I attend Community Bible Study (CBS) and have for 6 years now. My oldest started Kindergarten this year and he is going half day. I am grateful for this one more year before he begins full time. I was glad to see this circle of moms. It is so hard to raise kids and keep them from all of the garbage out there, all the while teaching them about Jesus and He is what is important. My husband and I grew up going to church, but we had no idea what the Bible really said or how to have a relationship with Jesus. We are learning as we go, trying to stay one step ahead of our boys.

Hi, my name is Jenny and I am from Bloomington, Illinois. I am a stay at home mom of four. I have Elisabeth 9, and Crystal 8 who are both from a previous marriage, and then I have Alexander 4 and Maria Grace 17 months with my wonderful loving husband Guadalupe. He is from Ciudad Hidalgo, Michoacan, Mexico. I was away from the Lord for a few years, but Christ wonderfully forgives and looks past our problems. I have found that helping other to Christ helps me look more closely at my life and stay closer to Christ. I love to chat and talk, scrapbook, read, and be a mother and wife.

Hi, I'm Becky. I am from ND. I have 4 great kids and am married to a wonderful man. We are a military family and have been through many trials etc but one thing always remains constant, God. We are very active in our church from musica ministry to missions. I homeschool our children and look for new ways to connect to other Christians as often as possible. I am also an RN and work a few days a month in Labor and Delivery and a med-surg floor. God has blessed us in many ways. Can't wait to get to know you all.

Hi! I'm Katie. I'm 29 and from CT. I have two little ones. My little girl is 4 and I just had a little boy who is 3 months. I've been married for 7 years now. I work part time with children with autism and am blessed to have my mom or my sister watch my little ones so I can help my husband by working a little. I figure God is using me to help the children I work with and that is what He is asking of me. I am also very active in my Church serving as the Mission Commissioner as well as doing lots of other things to help out. I was blessed to be raised in my Church and am trying to do the same with my children. In these times its great to see other women doing the same!!!

My two children, DS 10 (who is ADHD..for real, brain scans and all, no meds as God intended him to be 'perfect' this way) and DD 5 (who is just a girly girl :) ) attend a private Christan school, and are a big part of our music ministry this time of year.. My husband works in the oilfeild and I sttay at home except for 2 mornings a week where I coach gymnastics while my DD is in school. I am a worship leader in my church and I sing God's glory at any chance I get !
I hope to get to know all of you!
