SEATTLE (BP) -- Kim Menon was an avowed atheist. As a child, her parents took her to church but no one could satisfy her with the answers she sought. "I thought believers just weren't intelligent enough," Menon said. Now a kindergarten teacher in Seattle, education is a central part of Menon's life. Striving to get involved in her students' lives and to know their parents, she believes that's how students best learn and grow. But Menon had no idea this path would lead her into a Christian commitment.
