I've wondered howDifferent it is growing up in a family that doesn't go to church than the one who I grew up in whose whole life, activities and friendship base was based around church.  I saw my parents relationship with god because it was seen in prayers before meals, bible Reading and going to church.

I wondered how my kids could experience my relationship with god? Sure there is how we Love eachother respond to situations, but my bible is on my iPhone and we have discussions about life rather than prayer times.

So I set about writing a story that in someway depicted my relationship with god.  I have just finished writing 'A Lion in my bed' and although It is aimed clearly at my teenaged kids I plan to share it here. (when I can do the technical bit of getting it in the right format for onyx)

So here is the disclaimer; I welcome your comments insights, but firstly please remember that it was written with an aim for my kids to relate to it, so if it is over simple that maybe because of the people it is aimed at.  And while I have no desire for it to be published I make no appologies for the moments that seem shack like or aslaneque, these are things that relate to my relationship.

I am not interested in corrections to my grammar unless it is something that is unreadable,Shell has already changed my grandma to better grammar and i am so grateful to her for that; but rather I'd love to hear things you recognise in your own relationship and things you completely disagree with, that's cool.

I may post it in three instalments, it's only 24 A4 pages so not war and peace.

My hope is that it resonates with my kids and if one line hits home with any of you that's great too

J's story...you will need a PDF reader like Foxit to read it.

Every day people are straying away from the church and going back to God.
