Since my childhood I have felt a deep affection for God

Since my childhood I have felt a deep affection for God. I grew up without a father, and with my mother comforting me with assurance that our heavenly Father was taking care of us. I was happy in this knowledge. To be sure, I also heard that He would punish, but this did not quite fit my concept of Him.

Years later my mother became seriously ill with heart and circulatory disturbances. This condition dragged on for over ten years. We had applied a great variety of healing methods and consulted many different doctors, but without success. Then one day the doctor said there was nothing more he could do. He said literally, "Well, God sends evil as well as good, you know." I couldn't agree with that at all. I could accept the doctor's inability to do more, but that God, our Father, would not help us, I could not and would not believe.
