I was born in Indiana, and grew up in Indiana and Colorado. My parents divorced when I was in third grade, and my father was never near my whole life after that. At the age of 14, living with my mother and stepfather in Indiana, I lost my virginity with a boy living in the neighborhood. This boy broke my heart, and I ran away from home shortly afterwards.
I was born in 1968 and grew up in southern California, a strong-willed child with an “energetic” personality and the oldest child in the family.
The first eight years of my life, my family went to church, where I learned about God and Jesus. As a little girl, I recognized and fell in love with Jesus.
