I grew up in a Christian home. I went to church and Christian school and learned the catechism. At about twelve years old I had a growing desire to know more about the Bible. I believe it was at that time that I came to a genuine understanding of the gospel – that I was a sinner separated from God and that Jesus had come to be my Savior. I didn’t really get serious about the things of the LORD until I was about twenty-three years old.
