    Hi everyone. I am a home schooled country person, and since that means I don't have very many opportunities to meet others my age that are also Christians, I decided to joined this group, and I look forward to talking to others around my age about God. I am sixteen years old, and am honored to be called a Christian. :biggrin
    Jesus is the sole meaning in my life, and I intend to devote my life to serving Him.
    My favorite color is blue, and my favorite animal birds, if anyone wants to know. This smiley makes me laugh. Ha ha. :tongue2
    Oh, and I read tons of Classic books. I live in Minnesota, USA. I look forward to meeting everyone!

    Hi! My name is Julie and I'm 18. I currently work as a lifeguard and have for two years but I'm quitting on the 9th of January to leave for college! I was homeschooled my entire life and graduated in May. I'm currently taking long distance ed classes from home but, as I mentioned, I'm leaving for the spring semester. I like computers, politics, dance, hockey, song writing, piano, guitar, and any kind of music.

    Welcome to the forums! :wave. It's a pity that our teens section isn't very active at the moment. Hopefully it will pick up soon.

    I'm into computers, politics and music too! :)

    It seems many Americans have been homeschooled. Very interesting, as it is almost never done (and is looked down upon) in Australia. Interesting the differences in cultures. :chin

    Hey everyone. I'm Kayla (or KK). My birthday is October 4 and I'm 16 and a sophomore in h/s. I'm very trust worthy and I try to help the best way that I can if you want my help. :) I have recently rededicated my life to Christ (3-2-11). I was baptized on 9/26/10. I have facebook so if you have one add me and we can talk, just tell me who you are or I won't accept you. I recently, Feb. 25-27, went a retreat (Episode '11) with my youth group and I learned many things, but the main things that I learned was:
    1. Get rid of the negative people in my life.
    2. Be fearless in Christ!
    3. I need to forgive others and myself about the past, present, and future. :)
    I have Skype, so if/when you add me on fb I'll give you it. :) Anything else? Just ask! I'm only a message away!

    Welcome KK! :wave

    I hope you enjoy the site, although unfortunatley the teen population isn't very large.

    About me-
    My name's Nick and I'm 18 and graduated high school last year. I'm currently doing a gap year - so working and travelling at the moment. Next year I'll be studying high school teaching in modern history and geography at univerisity. I'm pretty massively into technology stuff, history and music. Oh, and Jesus Christ of course! :)

    Guten Tag! I'm not actually German, I just like to speak it occasionally :tongue

    I'm Garyn, a home schooled 15 year-old from Oregon. I like to mod games, and program a bit in my spare time, when I'm not chasing goats around.

    <<That's one of my goats in the avatar there.

    I joined this site, because where I live, I have no opportunities to meet people in person, and I wanted to socialize with fellow Christians.

    And I'm really looking forward to this event here: The Winter Jam 2011 Tour Spectacular, Christian Music

    I can find myself REALLY hard core gaming if i do not have someone to stop me or i cannot cap myself. Playing a little video games is perfectly fine, But what i have learned (In actually very recent time) is that when you get to eaten up by them they cloud your judgement and you cannot see clearly. When i get into a bad gaming cycle i just tell myself what does it matter? I am enjoying myself, Why should i stop its making me happy.. After getting pulled off of the games for a little bit i can see a little clearer and realize thats not what i want. I LEGITIMATELY BELIEVED that was the truth. It really made sense to me and i didn't feel like i was lying to myself at all. After i get forced off them i can see i was lying to myself and i guess the video games is the mechanism that makes me believe it. Just saying, Gaming isn't really bad. Just don't let it eat ya up.. Just thought it might be a good time to tell that story. Don't want you to overthink it when you first join just take it into consideration.

    Oh yes and as for your interest in learning about christianity i believe we can give you a pretty good perspective on what were about :)

    I'm a massive Xbox 360 Live gamer, mostly on Call of Duty. Love it! But we need to know where our priorities are. :yes
