New Here: Hi!

Postby AdaI » Mon Apr 07, 2014 6:01 pm

Hi, I'm new here to the CAA, and since I really laid down my belief in and life for Jesus, I've been yearning to find a niche in a Christian group. Since even before I was a believer I loved anime, I thought this would be a good place.

Something simple about me: I go to a public high school where there are few Christians, and my immediate family are unbelievers (but I'm praying for them - please pray with me, too!). I want to write a book someday to spread my faith, and I hope to muster the courage to be more open about my faith to my friends in real life. My conversion to Christianity isn't all that special; I initially started by looking into Christian apologetics after realizing how empty atheism really is, but I realized that if I was really going to get into the faith, I needed God to break down the roots of selfishness and pride in my heart so that I could truly love Him and live for Him.

So that's me. I'd be happy to meet any of you and get to know you! :hug:

Thank you! Ah, I probably should have noticed the Who's Who section. Oh well.

It's nice meeting both of you and I hope to have a good time on here. :)

Thank you, I hope so, too!

I have several favourites. My first anime was Fruits Basket and it holds a special place in my heart,and Ouran, Attack on Titan, and Durarara!! would be among my favourites along with it.

Konichiwa! Oh, thank you! :hug:

I like any music, really, minus heavy metal and rap. My favourites are between classical, rock, rock-pop, ballads, some folk and country. If the song is meaningful and has a nice tune, I'll like it.

Hello! Thank you so much. Luckily my family isn't hostile towards Christianity, so I'm going to have faith that God is working within them. :)

Ah, thank you so much! I am so glad I came home to God, too; He has made me feel more loved than I have ever felt and ever will feel. I can't wait to get to know everyone here as well. :)

Crazy ranter? Hm, okay, I'll keep my eye out. :thumb:

Ah, sorry. I don't bash anyone for liking that music - to each their own - but it's just not my cup of tea. :sweat:

Welcome, welcome.
You said something that caught my attention and I don't remember what it was. Hold on...*runs off to read intro post*
Oh, yes! Book! That's absolutely awesome, and I kind of have the same goal with a book I'm maybe kind of writing in my free time (whenever that is). You should share with us! Just don't get eaten by the angry shark critics. They haven't had anything to eat recently...
Durarara!!! Who is your favorite? Have you seen Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle? Because the future of humanity hangs in the balance if you haven't.
But all sillyness aside, that's so awesome about you coming to Christ. I already said this in your prayer thread, but I will most definitely be praying for you and your family. But praise God, it's so exciting to hear about new brothers and sisters in Christ! Welcome to the family, we're only mostly insane. :lol:
Can't wait to see you around the forums and get to know you. Have fun.

Welcome welcome! I think you have great taste in anime and music. I think you may be a kindred spirit...

Yeah, anyway, I'm glad you got Jesus! ^_^ I'll pray for your family to get aboard the Life Train!!! Also, I hope your faith grows strong like an ox. -_-
So yeah, happy to add you to our strange family. Welcome!!

Oh, thank you! There's a forum here for writing, I noticed - I might share my ideas there. I'd also love to hear about your book as well. Maybe we could give each other some pointers. :thumb:

Shizuo is my favourite. I adore him, because even though he's violent he doesn't really want to hurt people. I haven't seen Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle (sorry that I failed you, humanity!) but I'll definitely put it on my list of anime to watch.

Thank you so much for your prayers! It's good to know that when I have my time of prayer, I'll remember that I'm not the only one praying, and glory be to God for that. :) That's alright, you might not see it now but I can be pretty weird myself. :hits_self I'm so happy to be welcomed here.
