Hello Everyone, my name is Diane and I am 67 years old. I live in North Carolina on the east coast near the Atlantic Ocean. I have been with SP for many years. I have been a follower, then stopped, then started again, then stopped and now I am back again. There is something about this team community that keeps me coming back. This time I am going to reach my goals and be able to go into maintenance. I have 30 lbs to loose.

I like to read inspirational materials, journaling, singing, and encouraging others. I am retired after 32 years in public education. I am been married to my wonderful husband of 45 years. We have been blessed with 2 wonderful daughters and a son who is with our Heavenly Father. Our oldest daughter is married. She and her husband has blessed us with a delightful grandson. Our youngest daughter is not married yet and she has no children.

I do not like exercise at all, but I am going to try to get in some intentional exercise every day. As far as my favorite food...I like ALL food! emoticon

Because I am seeking and desiring to be healthier for the new year 2020, I am using for my scriptural reminder: I am fearfully and wonderfully made. (Ps.139:14)

I have to take back my temple!!! emoticon

I am depending on the ROCK of my Salvation to get self-control over all issues in my life. These include weight, being a better steward, and fellowshipping more. I realize that most of this is a process so I am willing to wait. I just do not want to totally stop!!!

All praises to God for all of His wonderful blessings!

Hi my name is Grace and user name (Graciouswriting.) Writing is my passion although I have not really followed through on it.

I live in Connecticut with my husband and grown daughter. I have three grown children (2 boys) and nine grandchildren. I've been married for 30+ years now and we are starting a marriage ministry at our church.

Me and my husband have always had to work hard for our money and it's never been enough to go around. But God some how managed to keep us going. He would make a way where there seemed to be no way.

My goal for this year is to concentrate more on my writing and I want to be a published author this year. My writing is what is going to help and lead us into the will of God for creating wealth and prosperity.

Neither my husband nor I had any training on how to handle money, so we've missed so many opportunities. But we did get a chance to attend some stewardship seminars at our church that helped to clarify a lot of our misconceptions.

And now we are in a semi better place. Hopefully we can manage to become better stewards of what God has and is giving us this year.

*Grace* for the Journey

HI, I am a 53 year old wife, mother of 5, (a 17 year old son at home, the rest grown and gone) proud grandmother of 3 granddaughters and a daughter of the King of Kings. My husband and I have made some stupid mistakes by refinancing our mortgage too many times! The last time was over a year ago when we took out a 10 year loan. Our payments are high, but we can do it. The main reason for joining this team is to get some good ideas from my brothers and sisters in Christ who are using their money wisely to glorify the Lord and become debt free.

I see my weight loss as the first leg, money management as the second leg I'm working on along with becoming more organized in my life to use my time more wisely. The bottom line is that I want to glorify the Lord in all areas of my life.

Hello everyone, I'm Jill (USERNAME MediaMs7). While I'll share alot when asked (especially if I'm asked to write), I'm generally shy. I've completed my first month being on SparkPeople today.

Since our good leader asked if I'd be OK being "featured" for this week, I decided it might help to be sociable. Writing is my passion, and although I work for a newspaper, ironically, I don't write for my employer. I'm the bread winner for my family of four. Come read at my Sparkpage or for a big variety, see my writing portfolio

Thanks for having a great team like this, just what I needed.

I am Deborah, AKA~Ponyfarmer and I am actually doing so much better than I was 4 years ago. But I can still improve.

I am a high school Reading teacher, I have horses and two dogs. I live alone and until 4 years ago I had a sizeable DEBT. I have been paying it down by following Dave Ramsey, God bless this man for what he does. I am just going to be flat out honest here. I owed $71,000.00 dollars after buying 20 acres building a house and moving two hours away from where I worked. Duh! I thought I could or would find a new teaching postition. This is to long to go into now.

The GOOD news is I now only owe, $19,000.00 and my goal is to be completely debt free in a year.

I only work, part time and I can truly say that it was all God and the miracles He created as I became more in line with His will, not my own.

"Owe no one anything except to love one another, for he who loves another has fulfilled the law."
Romans 13:8

A CHILD OF GOD, AND LOVED BY MY CREATOR.

Hello everyone:

My name is Sharon Mae but I call myself SharMae. I am a wife and the mother of a strong-willed, lively 9 year old. The Lord opened the door for me to find employment as a church assistant admin. Now I want to take care of the money I receive wisely and lovingly.

My family and I live in rural WNY. We enjoy the simplicity of our live.

The primary reason I joined this team is to be a better stewart of the finances our Lord has allowed me to have. I have been praying to become a better care taker of His money that has been given to me. So here I am, ready, willing and wanting to learn--plus anxious to meet you all.

God bless this team and each of you,
SharMae emoticon

Hi. I have a page on Spark People.com with info about me. I am on a fixed income and need help to stop keeping my credit cards maxed out with internet shopping. It has the marks of an addiction and I am really going to pray and ask for prayers, too. Glad to find a Christian team.
