Hey there, and thank you for the invite! I just joined, and in fact just heard of this particular forum. I look forward to hanging out and posting with you folks.
Just for safety's sake, here is the copy and paste of the very short version of my testimony.
I went to a Christian school. Christianity was taught but it was taught by snobby people and the kids and teachers were judgemental and mean. I didn't want anything to do with Christianity because of the type of people I went to school with. I decided I was an Athiest even though I still believed in Jesus. I got into drugs, drinking and sleeping around. I didn't pray or go to church. I didn't think about God at all. I moved in with a guy who beat me up. I got a job at a strip club. I stayed with him for a while doing all the sinful things. I left him and slept around more and did more drugs, not thinking about God. I met my husband and settled down and we started going to church. I saw that not all Christians were like the ones I knew growing up. I began opening up to Jesus more and praying and accepted Him again into my heart (I had done it as a child but fallen away). Jesus did not give up on me and took me back when I asked and forgave me for forgetting Him and sinning.
I'm not sure if it's required, but better safe than sorry ;-)
I haven't made a profile or anything, but if there's anything you want to know, just ask. I'll get to my profile eventually probably.
My name is Frances btw, and I'm a housewife, mother and grandmother.
