Hi there, my name is Christian Gittings and I live in a large village called Earl Shilton in the United Kingdom, Earl Shilton is between Hinckley and Leicester, also my dad is a vicar in the church of England I have Dyspraxia with cross over Dyslexia, I share this condition with A number of famous authors including Ernest Hemingway, The Bront sisters and Jack Kerouac the Dyspraxia part anyway. Dyspraxia is the partial loss of the ability to coordinate and sometimes balance, also I have some of the problems common to Dyslexia e.g. spelling etc but there is a good side to this, being I have a good IQ, even if some things in your brain let you down I became a Christian in about 1986, I was at a Church of England in Dagenham at the time. After one of the services me and this lady called Edner Hare were talking, I can not remember what we were talking about now. she said "Would you like to pray to become a Christian" or words like that, I must have been very surprised about this because I thought I was a Christian, I was brought up in a Christian family, My Dads a vicar as i have already said, I even went to Church, but that didn't make me a Christian, at this I said yes, I must have felt I needed to looking back. I knew about Jesus I learnt that from going to Sunday school and listening to my dad, but I did not know him personally, also I must have felt that something was missing. I felt that so we prayed and I ask Jesus to come into my life and he did, and he is helping me with my problems, sometimes I feel very insecure in my self, have low self image of my self and think I can do nothing this is partly to do with I have I have Dyspraxia with cross over Dyslexia as a have already said and when I was at school they did not know about this condition and said I was stupid and the school even tried to sent me to a special school, this hurt me because people like me who have Dyspraxia with cross over Dyslexia are very clever and have high IQs it just means you have problems, people did not understand this and I was bullied a lot, this damaged me, God is now healing me of the damage, pain and hurt, that was done to me and making me feel good about myself, and he has even helped me and gave me the confidence to go through university and get a degree.
