Becky Mayhew: Former Southern Baptist

March 29, 2010 No Comments

After a Southern Baptist tent revival, Becky Mayhew was baptized by her father in the Mississippi River. Performing frequently as a soloist before his sermons, she taught vacation Bible school at age sixteen and began teaching Sunday school at age nineteen. For many years, Becky and her husband Larry enjoyed the quiet lifestyle of a philosophy professor and an English teacher, rearing their son and serving in a Baptist church, where he was ordained as a deacon. When her son married a Catholic, Becky began studying the Catholic faith in hopes of converting her daughter-in-law to the Baptist faith. Instead, she found herself becoming Catholic.
