Something Interesting About Me

I have been baptized three times.

The first time, I was around 12 or 13 and baptized into the Southern Baptist church where my mother attended. When I was 19, I met a Mormon missionary and fell head over hills in love with him. He said we could be married if I would join the Mormon Church, which I did. I was baptized into the Church, studied and went through the temple, got my endowment and waited. Something happened to him half-way through his mission and he quit the mission, went home to California and left the Church. I married soon after that to another man, but that marriage ended badly. I then left the Mormon church and studied Wicca for about 10 years.

Around 2008, I began practicing mindfulness as therapy for anxiety and depression. This led me to Buddhism, which I still practice today, along with Wicca and Taoism.

In 2010, during one of my psych hospital stays, I meet this woman who got me into a program called Celebrate Recovery, which is Christian-based. I started attending meetings with her at a Southern Baptist church and even attended some worship meetings with her on Sundays. Later, I went through their 12 Step Program which helped me realize that my marriage was in serious trouble. After attending that church for a year, I wanted to become a member, but was told that unless I was re-baptized, I couldn’t. So I was dunked once again. I stopped attending that church in 2013 because my husband didn’t want me going there anymore.

Now, I still consider myself a Buddhist, but believe in Christ-Consciousness. When asked what my beliefs are, I generally say that I am a Spiritualist and leave it at that.
