    Just wanted to take a second to introduce myself to all of you. My name is Anthony (ANT for short) and I have been looking for a reformed forum to be able to learn and discuss theology with friends and fellow believers for quite some time now.

    I have been a Christian for around 9 years now. I started out with some REALLY BAD theology, but by God's Grace, He has shown me the truth of the reformed faith. I have been reformed for close to 4 & 1/2 to 5 years now and still stand in awe of our Awesome, Sovereign LORD!!

    I'm 33 years old and I have been married for going on 7 years now to my beautiful wife Susan. We have 5 children (all boys), Ages 3yrs, 5yrs, 15yrs, 17yrs, & 19yrs old. (There is NEVER a quiet moment in my house unless it's after midnight!) :candle:

    I have been reading the Puritans for around 5 years. One of my favorite Authors among them is Christopher Love. He had such an amazing testimony. I have read several books of his that have been published by Soli Deo Gloria, and they have benefited me immensely.

    I look forward to reading and posting will all of you. I'm no scholar, but I have studied quite a bit for a layman and I'm sure that I will learn tons from all of you.

    See you in the posts!

    Thanks Anthony!

    I look forward to interacting with you - especially since I am the father of 3 boys: 7, 6, and 3!

    Thanks everyone for the quick and warm welcome.

    Sorry Fred, for not reading thoroughly the requirements for the signature. Is my Avatar OK, or does it have to be a picture of myself? I haven't had time to look into that.

    I always look forward to learning from other men who have experience being fathers and I will share whatever I have learned also. I kind of stepped right into fatherhood (like walking into a wall - It hit me hard all at once.) When I first met my wife, she already had 3 boys (then 8, 10 & 12.) We were married shortly after we met (like 9 months.) Then within another 3 years we had 2 more children of our own. So, within my first 3 years of marriage, I was facing the responsibility of being a father to 5 children, with a couple of them already going into their teenage years. I have made plenty of mistakes, but the LORD really has given me grace, and a whole house full of wonderful boys. I have no complaints. I feel priveliged that the LORD has trusted me with this responsibility!

    Your avatar is fine. And don't worry about the signature - barely anyone has it at first, and you added it faster than people usually do!

    I'm glad to be here. It's been so long since we've talked. It'll be nice to do some catching up with you. Your little girl is so cute in that flower outfit. Here is a recent picture of my family and I .....

    Did you ever want any girls? I did. All three times God gave me boys. I aint complaining now that they are older and it is just me and the boys. This is what my boy's like to do to me.:deadhorse: God save us.
