  1. Hello to all!
    Just for a little backgorund about me:
    I just turned 41 and have only dabbled at times during my life with religion and faith. I grew up in a household where faith and church was not presented to me by my parents. Church was only given thought when I was in the presence of my grandparents and during certain holidays. Both my Mother and Father have extensive religious backgrounds. In fact, my grandfather on Mother's side was a preacher during the early years of my life before his passing.
    Anyway, during the past calendar year, through personal loss and a move from California to Arkansas, Jesus has entered my life. My wife and I have talked during moments of self-examination about the need for more spirituality and purprose. She is baptized Lutheran and asked me if I wanted to attend church - it felt right to me and so we found a church and committed to attendance.
    On Feburary 3rd I was saved!
    On a somewhat humorous note: I am not a reader, but love to read and immerse myself in the Bible and other materials that help support my spiritual growth.
    God Bless you all!
     
  2. Hi dgf4jesus, Welcome not only to Talk Jesus, but to the family of God. Re your comment about not being a reader. You sound just like my son - he left school at 17 having just done the minimum reading to get through school, but he's just like you immersed himself in the Bible and books to help his growth and now at 21 he's in his second year at Bible School. Our God is an awesome God.

  8. Hey PRAISE GOD, dgf!!! The angels in heaven were singing on Feb. 3rd, the day of your salvation! Congratulations on your new birth in Christ! I pray that the Lord will continue to bless you and your wife with a sustaining passion for His Word and growth in Him!

    We are neighbors! I live in Conway, AR...not too far from Little Rock! Welcome to Arkansas! Having lived in S. Cali for a couple of years, I know that this is quite a change from what you're probably used to in Cali...hopefully (and sounds like) for the better!

    God bless you brother!
