My biggest issue was seeing my youngest in tears after an event at a local church because she thought her brother would "burn in hell" because he didn't believe in God. She couldn't believe that the loving God we had brought her up to believe in would turn his back on someone who hadn't the same belief as the Church taught or that her loving Pets don't have souls so they wouldn't go to heaven. It was at this point that I knew there was an answer out there but which we hadn't yet found so we went back to getting on with our lives and my youngest attended local church events held for the social side but carried on with her own belief as we had all the years previously.
At this stage we would regularly have a look at our local charity shops for personal development books and about 18 months ago Gary came across a book called Conversations with God part 2 written by Neale Donald Walsch and felt drawn to buy it which he did. We both found it fascinating and decided we needed to read book 1 and also no 3.
As i was reading Book 1 it was like i had come home, the things i was reading weren't anything new, i knew it all already but i had forgotten it and reading it was making me remember - a very strange sensation but a life changing one.
