New to group
- I just joined this group and am looking for new Christian friends to
chat with. Send me an email or just an IM at mrdude196147 and I'll
answer as soon as I can. I'm married man, 47, with two sons. I've been
a Christian since I was 20.
- Its good you joined this group for the support. Most in group can understand. I'd like to chat with you sometime.

- I struggle daily with this. Prayer seems to be helping but could always use a chat or
phone call from a Christian brother who's also struggling. Strength shared is a grace, I
think. If you IM or call, just mention the struggle. I'm not always in a place to discuss this.
