What is WAH?

Back when I first started blogging, I started searching around and reading blogs written by people like me. Through these I found mentioned again and again this group called WAH aka Women At Home. The more I read of the members, yes both positive and negative, the more I longed to be a part of the group. Well just over 2 years ago WAH opened up their own website and message board. As stated on the introduction page,

" While W@H is a Christian organization, any woman may join -- we just require that she understands that this is meant to be a safe place for everyone. If you have questions, concerns, need someone to listen, or just want a reason to laugh, then there is a very good chance that you should be at W@H as well."

That is just what we have, a place to ask, seek, love, listen and be ourselves. The most wonderful testimony of what we have took place this weekend in a land far, far away. We had a wonderful girl join the boards who is from Belgium named ello. ello was a seeker and asked us all the tough questions, However, through the ministry of all the women there who answered questions and just loved on and prayed for her she made a decision for Christ! There was great rejoicing in WAHland. ello found a church close to home and started praying for her boyfriend, who has since accepted Christ, himself, more rejoicing in WAHland. Now ello since she had made her decision she waned to follow with baptisim, but could find no one willing to baptize her, since apparently she was baptized as a child. So she shared her desire and request with us all. Enter another amazing WAHwoman Zoe. She volunteered to fly to Belgium from her home in England and go to baptize our new sister in Christ. And that is just what she did!

Hi, Maria--

I caught up with you tonight! I miss having you regularly on Xanga. Life is different now for both of us, since we're now both employed outside our homes. It's hard to keep up with online stuff and keep up with real life, that's for sure! Anyway, I enjoyed reading your posts this evening. Thanks!

I haven't cried that hard in a long time. A cry of rejoicing what an honor to get to not only see the baptism with this technology, but we have been priviledge to see her entire walk. We serve an awesome awesome God.
