Rhonda was baptized Lutheran as a young girl. From her teens to her late twenties she was not active in any church. She turned to Christ in a Baptist church. Soon after, she became involved in the Charismatic renewal through her brother-in-law who was a pastor of an independent congregation. Rhonda was ordained in this church. Later she became the pastor of her own congregation. While watching TV, she stumbled upon EWTN and over time fell in love with the Catholic faith.
