I was raised in a christian home,like most young teenagers, wanted to explore the things of this world, i stopped going to church and begin to sing country/western music. My first experince in music was church of course, but then i started singing in bars. My very first record was recorded in bakersfield calif, where i met merle haggard and buck owens, they played background for my sisters and me on our first record. My mother prayed us out of that right away. God answered her prayers. My sister, pat, stella and me started back to church. We have dedicated our lives to this ministry and god. I now own and operate mountain of praise studios in mi wuk village calif..a small resort town in the high sierra mountains, close to yosemite national park..i attend creekside community church where i play piano and a big part of the music ministry there. I have traveled with the country cowboy gospel group where i was lead singer .. we were invited to los vagas to minister to the professional cowboy rodio convention.. where a handful of the cowboys are christian and are on the road a lot, they need christian fellowship while on the road, this need was quitly overseen by coy huffman who is the announcer at a lot of the rodio's. god surely takes care of his own. I'm a retired nurse, my husband, ron adelhelm is a calif. Correctional officer.
