What is your favourite Bible passage?

Jeremiah 29:11, it’s a firm reminder that God is in control.

“For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”

Short testimony

I was raised in the Salvation Army, becoming a Junior and then Senior Soldier, singing in their singing groups and playing a brass instrument in the band. I would say I was a nominal Christian until I was around 22/23 years old. I was baptised in 2011 in my local Baptist Church where I became a member and stayed until 2019 when my husband answered a call to ministry. In 2017 I had a very special experience whilst at a church weekend away.

Like many people I have had tough times and felt distant from God but, ever faithful, He has always been with me and helped me through some of life’s most challenging and heart breaking moments. I am still on a journey.
