I was curious as to whether there was any religious teaching or training in your childhood years? Your story gives me hope that other areligious people who are willing to seek answers to life’s questions will find them, if they are willing to ask and seek answers.
I had no religious training growing up. None. I actually didn’t know who Jesus was supposed to be until late in high school, and wasn’t familiar with the claim of the Resurrection until adulthood (I don’t think that simply having that information would have made me consider Christianity; I’m just illustrating how unfamiliar I was with it). I had a mostly happy childhood in a completely areligious family.
If you have any interest in the rest of the story, I recently discussed some of the details of how I read my way into Christianity here on my blog.
