I am afraid I was one of those children that was always asking ‘why’? I recall often being deeply troubled with the world and continually questioning and curious. From the earliest days, I was always trying to find my place in that puzzle. Sometimes it has felt like I have lived on a 3 dimensional snakes and ladders board and even a few of the ladders have gone down rather than up! But in all the twists and turns and ups and downs, there has been a constant of wanting to serve others and to support them to be the best they can be and to be truly in God’s image.
From teacher to bank clerk, charity worker, trainer, council officer, consultant and most recently a County Councillor I have always been drawn to work with and for people and put community at the heart of everything.
Having recently had to face major heart surgery, I now find myself once again entering a new stage of the journey wondering where my faith in people and God will take me.
