Deanna grew up in an average home and her life was pretty normal up until her teenage years. When she became a teenager, she went a bad way – got rebellious, got in with the wrong crowd. She wanted to do what she wanted to do. At the age of 17, she found out she was pregnant, and married one month after her grade 12 graduation. She & her husband settled down in 'Blissville', but it didn't live up to the name and things in her marriage began to crumble. Three months after her second child was born, Deanna's husband left her. She was terrified. Deanna got involved again in the wild lifestyle but found that all the 'fun things' didn't satisfy. Her mom then invited Deanna to attend a meeting where an Evangelist from100 Huntley Street was speaking. She resisted till the last night and that night changed her life.
