I wanted to understand God

From childhood, I remember loving God. My mother took me to a Protestant Sunday School when I was very young. I’m grateful for this, and for her example of being a gentle and good woman. My father was an honest and good man with strong convictions. I enjoyed Sunday School, was confirmed, and continued to be active in that church.

After marrying, my husband and I continued to attend the same denomination, but in another state. Gradually I grew dissatisfied with the sermons. I realized I was hungering for something with more spiritual substance. Also, I was having a hard time understanding the difference between God and Jesus. I had been taught that Jesus was God, but somehow that never made sense to me. Most important, I felt I needed to know the God whom I loved and worshipped.

You’re allll good!
