  • I am coming back

    Hi there, folks. I'm Violet and I am not a new Christian, exactly, but I have been out of the loop for a while. It has been years since I've been to church. I went through a really harsh time with an abusive husband, and for years I basically thought God had abandoned me. After fourteen years of being married to him, with the support of my mom and my best friend, I finally left. I have been very tentative about going back to church, though I want to, so I thought maybe a community like this would be a good place to start.

    I'm hoping I'll make some friends here and get some support as I go through this next stage of my life as a Christian.

    Hi VioletCake, I'm very sorry to hear about the struggles you've faced with your abusive husband, but I'm very glad that you've found you way back to the church, and I'm very glad you've decided to join us here as well so, WELCOME TO CF :)

    I look forward to seeing you around the boards, getting to know you, and growing in Christ together with you.

    God bless you! (Numbers 6:24-26; Jude 24-25)
