Hello ladies, My name is Anita also known as sweets719. I want to tell you a little bit about myself but before I do let me tell you a little bit about this group that you have found:
This group was created by myself and another close friend of mine in Feb of 2008. That seems like another life time ago! We created it because we found ourselves in a wives group but it was full of husband bashing, personal sexual details, and tons of cussing and arguing. Neither of us were involved in the other group for more then 2 weeks. But during that time we thought about the changes that we would like to make if we had a group of our own. But I have seen so many groups with only a hand full of members and didn't want to create a group that no one would be apart of. And I wanted the group to glorify God. After much prayer we decided to go for it. We started the group. Things started out really slowly at first and it was very discouraging. But God has blessed this group and the members poured in. Over the years we have had our ups and downs, seasons of activity and seasons of inactive members. The main idea behind the group had been to have a safe place to brag on our husbands instead of bashing them. Over time God has shown me a new purpose, to encourage and pray for struggling wives and their marriage. It has blessed me greatly over the years to be apart of it. I am thrilled that God chose to use me in this way. I have made some very lastly friendships from this group. As most of you have noticed we had been in another season of inactivity. As much as I have enjoyed the group I have not made much time for it. But I fully believe God has used it to touch many marriages and I can't bring myself to set it aside. I started getting emails all of a sudden telling me that there has been activity here on the group. And I am so thrilled and encouraged to see people, new people coming here and getting active! Thank you so much for reviving such a special group! I am purposing in my heart to be an active member again.
Now to tell you a little more about me:
I am going on 29 and I have been married for 8 years. My husband John and I have 4 kids together. 3 boys 1 girl The oldest is 8, then 4, then my baby boy is 20 months and my only girl is 10 months. Lol I guess that kinda explains why I haven't made much time for the group! I am a stay at home mom now and have been for the past 3 years, which is something that I thank God for all the time. My kids keep me on my toes but I love it! I am an active member of a local baptist church. God has given me a passion for sharing the gospel and it's something that I am growing in. I love to study my bible. I also love to cook, bake, decorate cakes, (sometimes I even like to clean!) I love to read, spend time with my family, and garden (even though I am struggling to grow a nice flower garden!!) I do grow some veggies and I am learning to can. I can't sow! At least not yet, but it's on my to do list,... eventually. I look forward to getting to know our new members and reuniting with our older ones. And if any one is wondering about the other co owner; we are still very good friends but she had decided years ago to step away from the group because she had been inactive on cafemom for such a long period.
