At the age of 32 Del Amos decided to go to law school and became a lawyer.

“Throughout my life, I felt an inner urging to put meaning into my life, to try to understand my life purpose, to find love and acceptance. I searched first for a god and then for THE GOD. When I was in my fifties, I don’t remember the date exactly in Christ Fellowship, my church, God put meaning and purpose in my life. I found the never ending love and total acceptance I had so longed for in the person of Jesus Christ. I accepted his gift freely given of eternal salvation and a new way of life here on earth, and I CHANGED. The change was and is slow, gradual and sometimes painful, but, I am becoming a fully devoted follower of Jesus Christ and I love it.”
