Why do you do it?
Children need to get on in life, and lots find it difficult.
Favourite Bible Verse?
"I will lift up my eyes to the hills." Hymn: "I do not know what lies ahead, the way I cannot see. But One stands near to be my guide, He'll show the way to me."
Why Is It Your Favourite?
I used to have a view of a hill as a child. Living where I do I have views of, come up and down Portsdown Hill. With the hymn, a lot of situations when my choice might have been different!
How did you become a Christian?
Brought up in church but it was an Easter on a visit to relatives - we went to Speedwell Methodist Church, Kingswood Bristol for a film and tea. I realised that Jesus had died not just in place of Barabbas, but for me as well.
