Praise God, in His eternal wisdom & kindness, I was raised in a loving Christian home. From my earliest days I remember hearing God’s word preached faithfully & was taught to memorise scripture & particularly loved singing hymns. There was no question in my mind that God was great and powerful, but I didn’t know Him to be ‘my’ God until many years (& many terrible choices) later! When I hit my mid teens, I no longer had a network of church friends, as my dad had taken up a pastorate on the outskirts of Cardiff, and the great love of my heart became very obvious: myself. After many attempts at a ‘conversion experience’ I decided Christianity was devoid of real power & went off in search of real pleasures!
