I was born in the state of Georgia (USA) on May 7, 1961. I belong to the 7th generation of the Herrin family to live in Georgia. My father was in the Air Force when I was born and we soon relocated to the Pacific Northwest. We eventually settled in the area of Portland, Oregon where I attended public schools through the 9th grade. My family then returned to Georgia where I finished out my High School years at three different schools. I married in 1985, and I have two grown children. In 1999 the Father directed me to leave my employment as a computer manager at a county hospital and to enter into a ministry of writing and Bible teaching full-time.
