About Me

Martin Young I am eternally restless, always pushing the boundaries, an early adopter, obsessive about the things I am interested in, a bit hyperactive, and an adrenaline junkie! My poor wife!! She has given me two beautiful children and a home to grow old in! I owe her everything I have. I write as a hobby, and contribute to medical publications, and international blogs on medicine. I play guitar, sing a bit (not very well!), write music, and lead worship for our local Vineyard church. I have a hard-won faith, found by the long and difficult route, in a God who loves us equally and passionately, and His Son, Jesus, who died that we might live lives of eternity.
