• Welcome to Christian Forums
  1. Welcome to Christian Forums, a forum to discuss Christianity in a friendly surrounding.

    Your voice is missing! You will need to register to be able to join in fellowship with Christians all over the world.

    We hope to see you as a part of our community soon and God Bless!

  2. The General Mental Health Forum is now a Read Only Forum. As we had two large areas making it difficult for many to find, we decided to combine the Mental Health & the Recovery sections of the forum into Mental Health & Recovery as a whole. Physical Health still remains as it's own area within the entire Recovery area.

    If you are having struggles, need support in a particular area that you aren't finding a specific recovery area forum, you may find the General Struggles forum a great place to post. Any any that is related to emotions, self-esteem, insomnia, anger, relationship dynamics due to mental health and recovery and other issues that don't fit better in another forum would be examples of topics that might go there.

    If you have spiritual issues related to a mental health and recovery issue, please use the Recovery Related Spiritual Advice forum. This forum is designed to be like Christian Advice, only for recovery type of issues. Recovery being like a family in many ways, allows us to support one another together. May you be blessed today and each day.

  3. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  4. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  5. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  6. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  7. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    Research has shown that people who wrote down 3 good things that happened to them at the end of the day increased their happiness significantly over a 6 month period. This is something I've already been doing a little of before I knew about the research, but I would like to make a point to do it every day now. Since I have an anxiety disorder, I sometimes find myself in the car on the way home remembering the embarassing or insecure moments of the day and worrying over those instead of concentrating on all of the positive things that happened. I think this would be a good exercise for me to learn to concentrate on the positive aspects of my day. So tonight I will be back here to report the good stuff that happened today! :)

    Does anybody else want to join me? What are 3 good things that happened to you today?
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    I think this is a WONDERFUL idea. It's very healthy to train our brains to dwell on the positive instead of the negative. Since it's just the morning now, I'll list 3 things from yesterday, if that's ok!

    1. My son was sick the night before, but yesterday he was much better.
    2. We had a sunny day.
    3. My period is almost over, lol.

    I love this idea !!!

    1--I am exhilariated by the weather we're having-it's cool with a light breeze. (I live in Texas and this doesn't last long.)

    2--Got a super sweet e-mail from a friend.

    3--I'm feeling optimistic in general.
