I had an Australian country boyhood, full of pranks, fun, and laughter and risk-taking behaviours with my friends. In Sydney to do my apprenticeship, I fell into the wrong crowd and started on a path that almost led to my death. At age seventeen, I had a terrible accident, resulting in a serious brain injury. After many months of hospitalization and rehabilitation, I resumed my life, acquired further education and work-related skills, met my wife, and have had some wonderful adventures. I have enjoyed my life immensely since my accident. Meeting God was the best of all. I have written my story in the hope that it might provide some inspiration for the reader. I know that when a difficult thing happens, Jesus is beside me, and by just having him there, I know that everything is going to work out for the better. You can do bad things in your life, but just saying yes to Jesus can turn those things to a positive side.
