New Member, Who Dis?

Hey everyone! New member here, so I am doing the new member thing and making and intro thread :)

I'm a school speech therapist by trade, recovering Catholic by spirit. Been out of the Catholic church since high school, but I'd say my journey to Jesus really started there. My mother, however, has known the Lord my whole life, so I did get some real Christ-centered experiences from her, praise God.

Anyway, the whole reason I say that is what has kept me from staying in God's light is major feelings of guilt and shame. I was baptized at 20 in college and started becoming involved in the Body of Christ for the first time on my own there. Since then, I've been through an eating disorder, graduate school, a divorce, and a season of letting myself kinda follow my own will outside of shame and expectations, which is what finally brought me back to the foot of the Cross.

God has been so patient with me as I've fumbled back to him. And now that he's brought me back to Him, I never want to leave. I still sometimes feel like a mess in front of his holiness, but when I think of how he's been pursuing my heart for as long as I can remember, and how following the will of others and my own lead me to such great pain, I know, like Peter did, that I have nowhere else to go.

My home is in heaven, and I just want to do as much kingdom work as I can. I pray he uses me in this place and works in this forum experience to continue to shape and prepare me for his work.

Thanks for reading :) Look forward to meeting all of you brothers and sisters

Thank you bobinfaith! That's awesome to hear you're getting some experiences with some speech and language kiddos, they really have my heart. I feel so blessed to get to work in small groups or one on one with school aged kids, I was with a primarily Muslim population the last two years and got some really awesome opportunities to share my faith with some curious middle schoolers. My love of language has had me wondering if I belong in bible translation ministry, but for now I am rich with ministry opportunities in my current line of work.

Looking forward to learning more about what your group is doing, and sharing knowledge, stories, and encouragement.

Love and blessings
