Hi, I'm Miranda, a 27 year old mom of two girls, ages 5 and 3.  I recently became a Christian and my boyfriend and I attend church regularly.  I am feeling guilty about not being married and living together.  Craig and I have been together almost 3 years and I couldn't have asked for a better father or partner in life.  However, we can't be married yet as both of us are going to school and need the money I get each month.  I would lose the money because the girls biological father (who I was married to) passed away and our sole income right now is my survivors benefits.  However, we want our girls to be raised in a Christian environment and hope they will practice courtship and not dating.  We want them to be pure before marriage.  I feel so guilty because we are not practicing the standards of purity, even though we were living together before I became Christian.  I'm hoping we can get married before it's too late for us to seriously teach our girls about sex before marriage. 

Anyway, I need good Christian friends and the advice of other Christian moms, so I hope this community will help me out! Thanks!
