Just got an idea from another post in another thread, are you religious/spiritual? What religion do you identify with? Do you go to church? Etc, etc.
I love learning about people's beliefs as well as more about my own spirituality.
I myself am Roman Catholic. I used to attend Mass regularly but have dropped off since Simon was born just because I am afraid of him being cranky during Mass.
I do consider myself to be spiritual but do not really have a way to describe it.
How about you?
We are Christian:0) We haven't found the right church for us ... still looking:0)
I try to live as the Bible wants me too, but am far from perfect!!!!!!!!
I have been using these to try to get me through my depression:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
And...if you have Netflix...the Creatures that Defy Evolution series is wonderful:0)
mmm i like to file myself under ?
i grew up baptist and was pretty religious around 12-13, but then it kinda tapered off and i began questioning a lot of things. Right now, i don't know what i am or what i believe. i believe there is something but I don't know what so I guess I am kinda spiritual. I have no problem with what other people believe as long as they don't try to force it on anyone, tell others what they believe is wrong, or think they are better then others because they are religious
I am also a Christian. I grew up in a Baptist church and I also tapered off around my teens. After dh and I were married we started going to a local church and he was saved. Then we left for overseas and we never found a church. When we moved to NY, I started looking for a church and I found one I LOVE! minus the stuff that happened recently with the pastor removel. I do go to church most Sundays and on Wednesday nights for children activities. I would like to grow more as a Christian but I most def. hold myself back because of laziness with reading the bible. I dont know if I would consider myself spiritual, but I do know I live with the lord in my heart and life.

I was raised Old Colony Mennonite. I lived the first 6 years of my life in Mexico (there are settlements of Mennonites there) and my family moved to the U.S. when I was 6. I learned to speak English when I was 7. Mennonites are very devout believers, but like all beliefs, there are instances of hypocrisy.
In September of 2006 DH and I were both baptized as Baptist (neither of us had been baptized before). That same pastor married us and dedicated Lyla. I have a very strong religious conviction and thank my father for instilling such a strong belief in me. There are also events that occurred my life that convince me there is a God and he answers prayers. I still hold on to a lot of the values and cultural aspects that I was raised with.
I was baptized and confirmed, Catholic. I went to church every Sunday w/my mom and attended CCD Wednesday nights growing up.
Then, in my HS years I started to drift away from it and met my ex.....we continued to attend church sporadically and my oldest 4 are also baptized catholic.
DH & I don't talk much about religion, it just hasn't come up. (now that i think of it, it's kinda weird considering we've been married almost 12 years) Anyways, he was more or less in a religious cult for 3 years....his mom was dragged into it and so was he....I guess they barely escaped it. I don't know a whole lot about it, DH rarely speaks of it.
Anyways, I haven't attended church in years.....
I was raised Catholic, but it definitely isn't for me. Even as a young child, something never felt right about it to me. I was finally able to stop going to church when I moved out of my parents' house to go to college. Now I am not really anything. I am torn sometimes between being agnostic and being atheist. I think I am a little more on the agnostic side right now.
we (my family and I) are very involved at church, it's super important to us because we don't do so well when we are relying on ourselves to get through. and personally, I feel so lonely and lost without God.
i also have a hard time reading my bible, i have ADD these days.
I JUST watched that on netflix, i didn't know there was more than 1! i loved it!! for some reason i thought the incubator birds were the most fascinating little creatures!
ETA..My mums family are Catholics and it is most defiantly I would practice if I were with the right person. I could be very religious but it' not something I ever talk about with DH
