Born Southern Baptist. Born again and baptized at age 7. Surrendered my life to full-time ministry at age 14. Toured with a traveling music ministry team and then attended Word of Life Bible Institute in upstate NY where I received my certification in Bible. Switched to Independent Baptist/Bible affiliation. Received my B.A. of Music from Liberty University. Got married in 1995 to a man who has his B.A. in Bible and together we were preparing for the foreign mission field. We eventually joined the Two-House Hebrew Roots movement and dedicated several years to end-time study and making preparations to participate in humanitarian apocalyptic ministry when I finally reached a point where I could no longer ignore the burning questions about theology that just didn't make sense along with blatant contradictions I'd come across. After all the decades invested in Bible study, it took all of a few weeks for the scales to fall off and blow away everything I had previously believed. Once you realize the Bible is s**t, it kind of falls apart at the seams rather quickly.
