I grew up in a home that went to church on Easter and sometimes Christmas. I went some as a child with an aunt. As a teen I went to a church with some friends, but by about the age of 15 pretty much quit going. When I got married we went to church some but after children came along, we stopped. I knew about God and Jesus but really didn't know them.
After moving to Augusta and meeting my neighbors, they went to church and my youth started going with them and they kept asking me to go, finally I did and at the age of 36 accepted Jesus as my Lord and Savior. Which is the best thing that I have ever done!
I never knew such love as the unconditional love of God, my life as the world looks at it is pretty bleak, but the joy that I have so much out weighs all that. God so takes care of all my needs and He also gives me some of my wants!
