  • Hello, new here :)

    Hello :) I like this site so far, joined yesterday. Long story short, I grew up in the Christian faith and left it a few years ago, and eventually identified as an atheist. This time last year, I was an atheist. Towards the end of last year, I was taken aback so much by an experience by what I'd consider to be the Holy Spirit. I was blown away, and there were a few other occurrences that happened after the initial one. I came back to faith, without hesitation and have had a joy and peace in my heart and life that surpasses the temporal happiness that this life brings. I wasn't unhappy per se, as an atheist...but I wasn't peace filled as I am now. I can honestly say I've been born again, and that was something that I couldn't say when I was a Christian, before. Thanks for letting me share my story, and look forward to participating here. :)

          Welcome.
          Your picture looks familiar.
          Are you the Diedre from another site who recently got engaged and recently visited a Baptist church with your Catholic parents?

          I hope you find the topics as pleasant as I have.
          (Keep an eye out for some weekly messages from NetChaplain in 'General Faith' ... they are often REALLY good reading and pick me up.)

            lol Yes, that is me. :)
            I do like this site so far and I'm hopeful of being helpful and encouraging here. Thanks for the advice, I will have to look at the messages you mention. I love reading different daily reflections as it's nice to see new perspectives on our faith.

              Hi Deidre,

              I notice that every day or so you post another avatar. They don't appear to be the same girl? Are you a photographer or artist? Just curious, maybe we need to start a collection for your avatars :)

              God bless,
              William
