Ladies Forum introduce yourself thread

Hi,
I'm 25 yrs old, newly married, Orthodox, enjoy knitting, crocheting, reading, gardening, and eating fresh food from my garden. I grew up Orthodox but didn't feel connected to it or understand it until highschool when I went to an overnight church camp. When I was in middle school, my protestant friend brought me to youth group, which helped me establish a relationship with God and set the foundation for me to become a practicing Orthodox christian. I introduced my husband to Orthodoxy when we started dating and he was baptized a year later. My husband introduced me to Roosh and I enjoyed his videos from traveling around the US. Nice to have a place to go with like-minded women. God made us different from men for a reason.
Our first forum husband and wife duo. :)
 
Hi everyone! I'm occasional lurker into the men's forum and overall RooshV's trajectory (so happy he found Christ). I'm a 31 year old Ecuadorian, single, I enjoy reading, music, keeping track of causes and praying to God. I feel happy this space was opened and look forward to connecting with like-minded women. God Bless!

With the goal of such an encounter being...?
Ah, the goal. I would first say hello and give a compliment to them about their appearance. Then get to know them a bit, then somehow like in the movie, The Last Supper, try to convince them that there is another way to dress in public. The Last Supper is a very old film where a group of housemates try to convince people of another way to think. I haven't ever worked up the nerve to do this but in my city, I am positive that they know exactly what they are doing for the most part. The younger ones probably see their friends doing it and haven't learned anything yet. I am talking full on view of everything ...that is how short the shorts are. It seems to fashionable to show the actual back end now.

Hi ladies,
Long time lurker but first time poster. I am in my 40's and single. Living in Dublin Ireland. I would not put myself in any particular faith group right now. No children which I am ok with - believe it or not. I didn't meet anyone that I wanted to start a family with. I do not have a spectacular career but things are going well. Some regrets of course but not bitter about them. I was drawn to the social commentary on this forum and the general decline in society. I am also a part time yoga teacher - I think I saw a lady indicated as such in her profile. Into outdoor activities - hiking, diy and cooking. Catch up soon ! :like:
I must be your Texas twin. I just entered my 50's and could say the same exact stuff. No yoga teaching...but definately doing the moves.

Hi ladies,

I'm 29, mom of 2 boys (pregnant now), hoping to be married soon but waiting on paperwork. I was a pretty hard-core lefty for a long time (majored in sociology... :S), made a bunch of decisions I've been working myself away from, and came across Roosh in that time. Hubby-to-be has been there along with me. I was saved about two years ago as a Pentecostal, attended a fairly liberal Baptist church but have been looking into the Orthodox Church as a family for the past few months. We realized we were missing substance where we were. Watching 2020 run it's course brought some faults to light in the church we were in and in our own walk. At this point, it's a lot of online church services and Fr. Trenham/Mull Monestary, trying to learn and grow in Christ as much as we can in isolation. I'm excited to talk with all of you and learn lots. Seems like a pretty wonderful group so far. :)
 
I'd like ladies here to know that if you are recovering from love-relationship-X-material-addiction you can DM me so I can help with prayer requests, resources (names, exercises, videos that may be helpful, books whose names I've recollected) and even a link to a WhatsApp group (it has a monthly fee due to Zoom meetings, and the group is nice). You are not alone! Rejoice in your weakness for He perfects in your weakness, for His Grace is sufficient unto thee. 2 Corintians 12:9

OK, I know I'm still recovering from a nasty respiratory virus I had last week, so maybe I'm a bit slow, but ... what does "love-relationship-X-material-addiction" mean?

Welcome to the forum to all the new ladies!
Any lady that has problems with addiction, which demonstrates itself with seeking "thrill" relationships, co-dependence and/or pornographic-erotica material seeking, among other harmful activities (vices, emotionalism... ) I'd like ladies to know Jesus got it covered via his perfect work at the Cross, and He has given you many resources to grab the Cross and keep walking the Faith Walk, keep fighting the good fight of Faith.

Oh, OK. Obviously that's a growing problem now. I'm glad there are resources to help those who are struggling.

Yes, I know becoming Orthodox seems to be gaining traction with conservative women online. I definitely respect it. However, it is so foreign to me. My entire family, friends and community are all Protestant. I don't even have a Catholic on the family on either side and until last year, didn't know someone Orthodox.
At least you've heard of it. When my husband first mentioned the Orthodox Church to me, I had no idea what it was. I think I asked, suspiciously, "Are they like Catholics?" I'm from Appalachia, where Catholics are generally a detested minority. Sorry to all Catholic members, but it was a long time ago anyway! :)

Amen, thank you for your post and offer of help and resources. All the messages I have read on the Women's Forum so far seem genuine and humble. I don't see any disdain being used here and I'm so happy we have a place to help each other out. God bless everyone on this beautiful Tuesday
 
Hello. Long time lurker. Mainly here to see what like minded people think about what’s going in the world in the spiritual sense and be in the know when everything hits the fan. I’m torn as to are we in end times or is this Gods reset. I’m on my 7th or 8th read thru of the Bible and all I know is HE said HE would never flood the earth again. So maybe there will be another cleansing so to speak just not with water. Who knows but if it’s time to go home it’s time to go. I prefer the ESV version and love king James but I don’t talk like that so ESV it is. Middle aged never married, made one wrong decision while young but it resulted in an intelligent son who can’t even legally have a drink but is working with nuclear power in the navy. Unlike what many people seem to think one bad choice does not lead to more. Had no loneliness due to living with my crazy family which seems to be the norm with immigrant families. It was a blessing for my son. Yes sometimes it’s annoying living in a house with what feels like 500 people but I’m glad my dad and brother were there for him every damn day. Work in healthcare and not at all concerned with the WuFlu. I love science fiction with Dune being my favorite books. A fan of horror cause I love good defeating evil. Weapons are fun. Ted Dekker is a great Christian author whose books are thrillers and on the scary side but the main theme is always God wins in the end. You can see why I don’t fit in with the knitting crowd. Keep praying Trump stays in office. God bless my fellow ninjettes.

Hi! I'm 32, married two years, my husband and I have a baby boy. We live in an apartment near a major city. I grew up more rural while he was suburban. We're both Orthodox and met at a summer camp, and our older siblings were friends; my dad is an iconographer, my brother is a priest, my mom is very pious-- when I hit adolescence I struggled with my upbringing a lot and was lowkey agnostic. I was homeschooled up until I started community college at 17, my parents officially separated around this time (but didn't get a a divorce until a few years later). I had a very hard time dating (emotionally speaking), worked restaurant jobs and got a funeral service degree (don't ask, thought it was a good idea at the time), worked as a preschool teacher (read: babysitter) for a few years, then back into restaurants as a line cook.

Dealing with the panicky Covid idiots has made for an "interesting" year. Checking back here makes me feel a little less angry/crazy. I probably won't be posting much but glad I'm not the only female lurker on here!

Hello there! I’m a housewife married for 30 years. We just built a house in the country on 3 acres. My husband retired in August. We live in the middle of nowhere in Missouri next door to my parents. I’ve lurked here for a long time enjoying the conversations.

I had some feminist ideas when I was young, but I was still worlds away from the current version of feminism. I met my husband when I was 21 and he was 30. We married 10 months later. We are very compatible, so that makes the hard work of marriage a lot easier. I quit work to be a housewife at 24. I struggled mightily with running a house. I’m still not efficient, but he appreciates my efforts. We never had kids, something I sometimes regret. I never developed that ticking maternal clock I hear so much about.

I enjoy knitting, gardening, reading (the Bible lately), and painting art. And gaming. I’m engrossed in Animal Crossing currently, but I’ve been known to stay up all night lost in Call of Duty too.

Hello, I am another longtime lurker since the early days of ROK. As others have also stated, it’s great to have this space for traditional minded women. I’m pleased, and not altogether surprised that there are so many of us here.
I am 38 and have been married to my husband since I was 24. I was raised in a conservative Roman Catholic home. My parents have been together for 45 years. They are my greatest role models and I hope to be as fortunate.
I strayed away from the Church for awhile as an adult, but I have been finding my way back over the last year or so, in part thanks to this forum and Roosh’s blog.
Seeing as others have posted similar interests, I enjoy cooking, reading, sewing, fine arts, and beauty/health. Glad to be here, thank you for having us!
 
Hello,

I am 30, married 5 years ago. I am an Orthodox Christian and seeking to connect with people who are also of faith. I struggled in my marriage for a while, as I was ridiculed by secular society for being 'too young' to be married and that I was missing out in life. I let these comment in and they slowly tainted my vision where I began doubting my life and my marriage immensely which caused great divide and angst between my husband and I. God eventually revealed His path for me, and I finally have peace. I struggle daily with pride and other sins, and I am working on my self spiritually to reach a place of humility, love and acceptance. I am currently reading the New Testament, and each day I am learning and understanding more about the faith. Would love to connect with you all and share some insights and Christian perspectives on life in current times.
My oldest daughter was married last summer at the age of 19. Don't let people tell you you were too young. <3
 
Welcome to islandgirl and Kitty Tantrum! It's wonderful to have more ladies posting!

Kitty, this is one way in which the lack of guidance from parents is so devastating for girls/women. You would have been so much better off if your parents had gently helped you with the husband selection process. Not arranged marriage, of course, just helping you look over the prospects before you went so far as to fall in love. They may have noticed something off about your ex-husband that you missed because you were young and starry-eyed.

Whatever pain you went through, you got your sons from it. I'm sure it's hard to forgive your ex, but at least he gave you your sons. Having never been in your situation, I don't know if that helps. I hope so?

So far, I'm older than all you other ladies. (Early 40's.) I'm starting to feel a little mother henish. :)
Early 40s here as well. :)
