  1. Hi! You will never (in a million years) guess where I am starting work soon!! It's a part time job at night to bring in some extra money.

  2. Happy birthday to a dear friend!!!

      Things are going well and I hope they are for you, too. Your birthday has been on my mind for weeks!! ((Hug))

  3. The interview went well, but I am still waiting to hear about the job. Of course, I hope I get it, but I am so used to job hunting disappointment that I am ready for good news or bad news. My daughter moved to Chicago and, of course, is not in school. She remains fairly private and won't give us her address. Talk soon, my GREAT friend!!!

  5. Got a job interview coming up! Very happy about it, but haven't actually had a job interview in over 30 years because of self-employment. Wish me luck!!

      Just remember, you're interviewing them, too. If something gives you a bad vibe, RUN.

      OF, did same last August. Picked up a night shift part time slot to keep me from going nuts. Been with .comp since, had been about 15 for me since last "employed". Gitt'um!

       

  6. Welcome back, bird! I hope you are able to work things out with your husband if your renewed doubts about Christianity grow and become more important to you. My only advice is to wait making any announcements to your husband about your view of Christianity until you have fully come to terms with it in your own mind. Maybe I'm wrong, but you sound a little lukewarm on the issue right now.
  7. Locked. Not appropriate for the testimonial forum. Note the title, "Testimonies of Former Christians". You are not a former Christian, but by your very words a current Christian. One more such incursion into the Testimonies forum and you will be given a warning point!!!
  8. This is not appropriate for posting in the Testimonial forum. Don't try this again!
  9. I've never read anything like that before. The thing that gets to me about something like that is that those poor folks who don't have all the good things are the ones that God ignored. Or worse yet, their faith was not strong enough.... Thanks for sharing that, Margee.
  10. Welcome to ExC, you've come to the right place to discuss your issues. Most people on ExC will know where you're coming from. Like you, there was a time that I could not imagine myself not believing all the same things you did. Leaving the faith is especially difficult when your family, friends and other loved ones are so strongly a part of Christianity as you have described. I will be brutally honest with you and tell you that there is a good chance that if/when you tell them, there will be a strong emotional response that will be very difficult on you and on them. That's not always the case, but the more conservative Christian they are and the more they find their identities largely in Christianity and the church, the more likely that the response will be emotionally intense. I am not saying not to tell them because that is your call. You know them, I don't. Rather prepare yourself the best you can if/when you do tell them. One thing I will say, though, is that you should wait until you are emotionally ready before you tell them. Leaving the faith takes its own healing and that healing can sometimes take quite sometime. Get your own emotional house in order before telling your family something that just might add further chaos in your life. In the meantime, congratulations for having the courage to question the faith, to look into those questions, and then accepting the truth about Christianity. I hope you stick around here for a good long time.
