Born in Bournemouth in the mid 1930’s, Rhoda Moulding had an eventful childhood. After starting life in care, she returned to live with her parents in London at the age of 6. Shortly after, as a result of an accident, she lost the use of her left hand. Then, at the age of 11 her father was killed. A few years later, she was left homeless along with her mother and brother after their house suffered a direct hit during the blitz.
Rhoda became a Christian at the age of 15, giving her life to Christ at a youth camp. She went on to marry John and they had 5 children. Throughout their marriage, as well as times of joy, they have had to face many difficulties and heartaches together which has strengthened their faith and enabled them to help others going through similar experiences.
Her poems were written as a result of these experiences throughout her childhood and adult life, not only as a way to express her feelings but also in the hope that they will be a help, encouragement and a blessing to those that read them. Several of them were also written with the aim to inspire and encourage the young people she worked with over so many years.
