When I was growing up I never gave much thought to God but lived a reasonably good life. When I was 18 something happened that was to change me. Three days after my 18th birthday I was in a car crash and my boyfriend was killed. Six months later I was in another serious car crash but I was alive and all my injuries healed. I thought why has God saved my life? Sometime later I befriended some Christians and they told me that Jesus loves us so much that he died that we might have life, life to the full. I had felt empty and directionless but then knew that God would forgive me of my sins and offer me new life if I came to Him. I gave my life to Christ on 29th June 1981 and felt an overwhelming sense of being loved by God. I had found peace and my life had purpose.
