I was born and raised in a small village on the Staffordshire/Shropshire border. After college I went to live and teach in Stourbridge and then got married. Mervyn and I moved to Alveley where we lived with our 2 boys for 20 years. It was there in 1992, after realising there was more to God than just going to church that I became a Christian. We moved to Highley 22 years ago and I felt God was calling me into Reader Ministry and so I have been in this ministry (apart from a short break) since 1999.
