  1. I think my faith is wavering, please help

    You say that you are getting angry at God. Do you think that God can't handle that anger? That He hasn't had many people angry at Him and blame Him for things throughout the years? Trust me, God can handle your anger at Him, better than I could when someone is upset with me. If your anger takes you closer to Him, then so be it. I don't know of very many people who would say they have never been angry at God, if they were truly honest in their answer. Just because you are angry, does not mean that you should give up and walk away. Just because you don't like some of His laws doesn't mean that He doesn't love you. You got mad at your parents growing up, didn't you? Your boyfriend probably does things that make you mad, doesn't He? And yet you still love them. Walking away from your faith isn't the answer, but questioning why God says to wait for sex until marriage is perfectly okay. Through questions, you can delve deeper into your faith and find the answers that make sense for you and the reasons behind why God says what He did. I'm talking about a deeper answer than "Because God said so in the Bible", but an answer that is right for you.
  2. YES!! THIS!!! Personally, I've never cared for registries when I see how and why and what people put on them...
  3. Who here aspires to marry a wealthy man?

    This hits the nail on the head. For many women, it all comes back to that need for security and to know that the man will go out and work at a fast food restaurant or odd jobs if needed in order to support a family and keep food on the table and lights and heat on in the house. I don't need a millionaire or a wealthy man, but I do want a man who is willing to work at keeping us financially stable. I've worked for many years and will continue to work, but one day if I marry and have kids, I would like to have the freedom to stay home with them while my husband supports us. I've supported myself and have a mortgage so I know what it takes and will support him in any way that I can and if that means I work if we fall on hard times, that's okay too. And as Blind and Broken stated, it would be a wonderful opportunity to be debt free and to bless others.
  4. What is your favorite Bible Scripture?

    Isaiah 40: 12 Who has measured the waters in the hollow of his hand, or with the breadth of his hand marked off the heavens? Who has held the dust of the earth in a basket, or weighed the mountains on the scales and the hills in a balance? Job 37: 5 God's voice thunder in marvelous ways; he does great things beyond our understanding.
  5. Who on here likes to read?

    I've read the biography on Bush that you listed and 41 as well recently. I think I've read Washington's but it's been a while. I haven't read Dutch, but I want to. Exactly, my "to read" list grows exponentially...especially with my Kindle. All those free books and I can check out library books from my couch!
  6. Who on here likes to read?

    I, too, am a reader - have been for as long as I can remember. While I tend to favor certain genres, I lean toward more political, biography, and fiction. I occasionally delve into a mystery, but not very often. I'm on a big Dee Henderson kick at the moment, not sure where I'll go after I reread some of her stuff. My list of "to read" keeps growing. I agree about Grisham...I used to enjoy his books, but haven't cared for his later works and haven't read the latest few.
  7. March Against Monsanto

    I'm not sure how it "impedes choice". As for polluting pollination, both non-GMO and GMO farmers are under obligation to follow best practices and take all appropriate and necessary steps to prevent the mixing of the two groups. Can it happen - yes, with wind and insects for example, or poor handling. So I'm not sure how the GMO owner, in those cases, can be held responsible... other than on an individual (farmer) basis due to poor farming practices.
  8. Meeting new people

    Depending on the volunteer position, that could be a great way to meet new people and be an introduction to the city. As well as pursuing education - people that are interested in the same career path that you are.
  9. March Against Monsanto

    The problem is that there is so much information out there that is wrong and people are so much more likely to listen to a blogger on social media who has never stepped foot on a farm than go straight to people who know what is going on. That's what makes it great about choices - you can choose to eat organic if you want though that's not going to feed the world.
  10. I like the list and I have to agree with everyone else - YES to #8!! That's a pet peeve of mine when I'm trying to have a discussion with people.
  11. I agree with samaye - I do mean to reply but something else catches my attention and I forget. Or maybe I even type in an answer, thought I pressed send (but didn't) and moved on to another text.
  12. There is absolutely nothing wrong with using your singleness to become a better person. You are expanding your world and learning every time you cross another finish line. The right woman will appreciate that and will probably feel the same way. For myself, I don't think I would be happy with a man who didn't use his time being single to pursue hobbies or jobs that he loved, If he had no goals in his life, then he is probably not the man for me. I wouldn't want him to "stop achieving in life" just so I could catch up. But you have raised a good point and one I have pondered before...not that I will stop achieving in my life. The right man for me won't be intimidated by what I have accomplished and the paths that I have chosen to pursue. Hopefully everything that I have learned and done over the years will complement his skills and his path in life as his will complement my own...
  13. Male Doctors....

    I have a female doctor (GP), not that I go see her that often, but I've never had a problem with her and she is very good. My mom also goes to see her quite a bit and I accompany her and she does a very nice job with trying to figure out exactly what is wrong and will send you to a specialist if needed. I had a male doctor up until college when I switched to this female doctor. The reasons had nothing to do with his gender and I'm not even sure he still has his license. My current doctor is fairly young though so I hope she's around quite awhile.
  14. I don't think that I would dye my hair just because he wanted me to. My hair changes color during the summer anyway; it lightens up a lot and whole sections turn blonde from being in the sun, so all he has to do is wait a couple of months. Plus I try to keep my hair as healthy as possible as I donate it every couple of years.
