It was a dark and stormy night ... well, actually, it wasn't stormy, but it was dark that night in January when I was born to Finus and Beverly Powers in Jackson, Tennessee. A few months after my fourth birthday, my family made the move from West Tennessee to Estill Springs, a sleepy little town in the southern portion of Middle Tennessee. How blessed I was to be born to such a loving couple.
I have many happy memories growing up in a Christian home with my brother and sister. What a warm, nurturing environment it was!
