If you were to enter my kitchen, you might quickly notice that my house is full of stuff. Of course, my five children contribute to the assortment, but I take responsibility for more than my share. Many items are scattered around, splashing an array of wildflower colors onto every surface.
I came into the prophetic church later in life. I grew up Catholic, became a Christian just before high school and spent the next few decades immersed in Evangelicalism. I attended an Evangelical grad school, got married and spent the early years of motherhood listening to James Dobson on Focus on the Family and measuring myself against the standards of mainline Christian publishing and radio. I even worked for a major evangelical publishing house through grad school.
One day I had a realization that there were parts of Scriptures that I had been trained to jump over. Speaking in tongues is an example of this. I had questions.
