Hi all, My name is Chris and I am new to the AoM community. I am looking for a support team to back me up on my endeavors! First, a little bit of my story up until recently. While going to high…Continue
"Hey Chris looks like you are headed in the right direction but, you've got a full table there. Even without the external stuff, most people will struggle with just the job/school part. All I can say and, I'm in a tough spot too, a half…"

The book was recommended in this group in an older discussion, that's why I bought it. While my handwriting isn't too bad by most people's standards, I'd like it to be excellent. I often take notes and when writing as fast as I can, my handwriting quickly becomes hard…See More
"With you getting your priorities right with God and praying for His highest and best for you in all areas of your life, including a wife, I believe He will begin to put thing sin motion that will bring the two of you together. There is nothing…"
