Lesley Mills Lesley Mills - My Testimony

I was brought up in a loving family and attended a Methodist Sunday school followed by a Congregational church and later an Anglican Church. My friends always called me “God Botherer” or “Bible Basher” but I didn’t mind as I really enjoyed singing the hymns, although I could never understand some of the sermons.

In my teens I did move away from the church for a while and led quite a Godless life. I married at the age of 28, having a 4 year old child already, and had two more children. Unfortunately at the age of 40 after 11 years of marriage I got divorced.

Looking back, I went off the rails by drinking far more than was good for me. I still attended church on occasions and still considered myself to be a Christian.

I met Alan on a night out at the local pub (he was still playing in his band at this time). I arranged to meet him again a few days later and he told me he was a born again Christian. He explained to me how I too could have a relationship with Jesus (which was something I hadn’t heard previously). He invited me to the church that he attended, Newbold Baptist Church, and I realised from the moment I walked in that there was something different about the people there. I now realise that the difference was Jesus. After attending for a few weeks I made the decision to ask Jesus into my life and I haven’t looked back since. That was in 1992 and I dread to think where I would be today if I hadn’t made that commitment to Jesus. I just thank Him for dying on the Cross so that I could have a new life in Him.

I always enjoyed poetry at school and I hope that the poems I write now will speak to someone who needs Jesus in their life just as I did.
