I was brought up in a Christian home in Gravesend Kent, but only when I was 15 years old did I take personal responsibility for my faith. I became a Christian during a period of childhood illness (brain tumor). During this time God performed several wonderful miracles including protecting me from the effects of radiotherapy on the pituitary gland and miraculously restoring a portion of skull bone that was originally removed as part of exploratory surgery. I was grateful for all that God had done in sparing my life and also realized that I was guilty of breaking the law and was in need of his redemptive power. I began a search to know more about him and was particularly aware of the calling of 1 Peter 2:24. During this time I came across several apologetics-based ministries including Answers in Genesis. For the last 20 years, being a Christian has given me purpose, and I have made it my goal to pursue God in my work and family life.
