Hello, I'm a new member! Hi my name is Heather. I'm a 28 and married for 4 years to my wonderful husband. I am a nurse practitioner who is out of work currently. I was working up until a little over a year ago when severe depression paralyzed my life. I did not grow up in a church home. I occasionally went with an aunt to a Methodist church. My aunt had me say the words that would save me, but I didn't know their significance or understand what I was doing. In 2001, my husband (who was my boyfriend at the time), and I started going to a local Baptist church. We really enjoyed our time there. We were saved, but never got around to being baptized. I at that time didn't follow the teaching and didn't get into the Bible like I should have. I recently realized that only through God's help, will I be able to get through this depression, and get back to living a proper life. I have a Bible that helps explain some of the things I am reading. I feel so much more at peace when I'm reading and praying. Since I am almost always at home, I find myself praying a lot throughout the day. I wanted to find a place like this on the internet to share the Lord's word. I want to find fellowship among believers, and this looks like the place. I went to another forum, and it was full of people bickering about their ideas. I see that it is not tolerated here, and that is so reassuring to me. I just want fellowship, which I think I can find here. I am going to start looking for a church home, so that I may find local fellowship as well. I want to understand the Bible better, and hopefully will find a church that can help me with that. My problem is that I don't know what denomination to go to. I guess the best way is to just go to different churches, and see what the Holy Spirit tells me is right. I'm glad to be here, and can't wait to talk more with you all. God Bless you all!
