I was an actress in a hit US TV show, but there was still a void within me

The sun was setting across the dazzling Pacific as I contemplated my life. Was I happy? I was a success – that much was obvious. Successful in the eyes of my parents and friends back home in the UK. I’d effectively ‘made it’, if the objective was to get as far away from my…

I thought I was living in the fast lane by clubbing and partying

When I was a child I was dragged out by the collar on Sundays to Sunday School and different things like that. I absolutely hated Sunday. But it did give me some foundation of knowledge of the Word of God, even though at the time I had no interest in it. After I left…

Practising Islam was simply our way of life. Then I found Christ.

I was born in the West Midlands but my family is from South Asia. I always thought that to be Asian was to be Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, or Muslim – and that to be anything else would be following Western ideas. Nearly everyone at my local school was Muslim. However, they fell into two…

I came to understand God’s immeasurable grace

I grew up in Hungary where I was baptised into the Roman Catholic Church as an infant for cultural reasons, even though my family are not Christians. I had been thinking about Christianity for a couple of years after some difficulties in school because of my own sins and sins against me. I felt…

I kept asking, ‘What will happen to me if I become a Christian?’

I didn’t grow up in a Christian family. My mum did take us to church when we were children, but I had no concept of a relationship with God. I do remember praying once when I was an adult. That was when a good friend was terminally ill with cancer. When she died shortly…

Jesus’s personality and character really struck me

I didn’t grow up in a Christian household, so I was never sure if there was a god of the universe out there. Even in the fleeting moments while I wished there was a powerful god, he just seemed vague and distant. Like many, I wanted to seek happiness and fulfilment, so a successful…

Light in the darkness

One of the saddest days of my life was the day of my father’s funeral. It was a dark, drizzly and murky winter’s day. The weather outside seemed to mirror our mood inside. We had a service in church, giving thanks for my dad’s life, and then went to the cemetery to bury him.…
