Interesting facts about me
I have memories of God's wonderful provision as a child in WW2.
I served 6 years in the RAF as an Education Officer in the 60s & had wonderful Christian fellowship.
I married a RN Officer who went on to be ordained. He died after 11 very happy years of marriage. I brought up 2 sons from then and am amazed how God made provision for us all.
I am a member of St Jude's Church Southsea.
I have taught Maths for many years.

Extra Time Reading Mentor
Why do you do it?
I know how essential good reading skills are and I long that all children will know the wonderful Bible stories and the love of God for themselves.

Why Is It Your Favourite?
During very dark times I have known "The Good Shepherd" to be with me.

I was brought up in a Christian family. In my late teens I became more and more aware that I needed to repent and accept the Lord for myself.
