I'll tell you a little secret (don't tell the rest of the forum, ok?) :)

If I had the luxury of time...

I could totally see myself being an anime nerd. :)

You just keep being you. It's obvious from your posts that your heart is seeking God--everything else will fall into place.

I'm really glad that you and Koji (sorry, I can't even spell his whole name, lol!) are talking--it seems like you both want approach anime in a Christ-centered way and I pray that God blesses your journey and gives you more like-minded friends! :)
Thanks again you're prettycool:giggle: God bless. Those girls obviously got jealous cuz your super virtuous lol. Yet another girl has helped me, hopefully I can help others for a change. I'd like to be able to encourage people like you you're truly blessed.

I don't know about super virtuous, lol.

When I eventually do lose my temper, it ain't pretty--just ask any one of my friends! :)

Thank you very much for the extremely kind words. :)

You're a very cool little brother in Christ--it is SO encouraging to see younger brothers and sisters running after God's will for them.

Keep on hanging out with us, and just having you here will be a blessing. :)

Hi Gracie,

Great thread, and you even posted a poll! Wow! :love: Kudos to you. ;)

I joined CC in 2009 and like many have said, was going through a time of severe depression and confusion in my life. I still felt like I was in the recovery stages of my divorce, and had spent half my life in a very conservative church and the other half in a church where people claimed to see demons in most everything, so to say that I was a bit confused would be an understatement.

I have always worked a lot so fitting real-life social activities into my schedule has always been challenging. I had also spent several years where I was heavily involved in church activities but was spiritually and emotionally worn out. I wanted interaction with other Christians but was hoping to just hang out with people rather than feel like they always needed something from me.

When I first came to CC, I hung out in the chat rooms a lot. I really enjoyed the days when people used to play Bible Trivia there, as well as listening to StillWaters, Harpy Eagle, Trilogic, and Kyra. I used to come home from work and immediately log in if I saw any of them there (I wasn't stalking any of them, honest! :cool:) They had a special gift for turning a group chat into a genuine place of fellowship, and were especially good at talking to some of the younger people who would visit. Some of them were young teens who were looking for a safe place to hang out after school, and it was so encouraging to listen to how much CC'ers like this cared about their lives and how they were doing.

Somehow, I eventually found my way into the forums and started writing. I was really intimidated at first. Plus, I have to admit that I was a bit of an angry troll when I first came here. I was depressed and mad all the time, but when I found that if I could channel that into a few questions that prompted others to share their stories, I was hooked, and feel very grateful that many people here were patient with me.

In general, I'm not a very fast learner--I need all the help I can get. If I'm trying to learn how to do something, I need a little of everything that's available--written instructions, pictures, and YouTube videos.

CC has become my "YouTube Video" for many issues in life. Listening to how other people have handled some of the most difficult situations life can throw at us--and still maintain their faith, or struggle through it--both inspires and teaches me to go through my own challenges as well.

So far, I've had the privilege of meeting about 10 CC members in person, and they were all lovely. I haven't had a bad experience yet with any CC member I knew for some time and wound up meeting in person. I have friends and family scattered all over and am sometimes able to travel to see them once or twice a year, so now when I do, I try to arrange meetings with CC members I've known for a while along the way.

CC has been an enormous blessing in my life and I will always be grateful for the people I've met here.
Wow...wow...wow, what an amazing story Seoul! Thank you for taking the time to write this. It has been such a blessing to have you here...especially the engaging threads you start up. So, my word to you is to keep up the good work! Never let your guard down.

God bless you :)
