Without guidance, I started seeking spiritual enlightenment at a very early age. As a first grader, each Sunday, I made my dad drop me off at the neighborhood church. There was no talk of religion in my house, so I don’t know where the desire to go to church came from. The only thing I can guess is I had friends who told me there were donuts there. Donuts are very spiritual to a six-year old. I loved everything about church. We sang and we ate the donuts (that’s probably where my sugar addiction started!) I liked the community, and I really liked vacation bible school because we ate “biblical food” like cheese and figs. It always comes back to food for me. I also liked making ashtrays for my dad.
