In 2007, while I was my church's worship pastor, I first understood there was a more significant issue at hand. I would go home and stay under the covers with the curtains drawn, go days without eating, and never leave my room even though I could get up and sing and see people delivered, set free, and experience liberation in their lives.

I firmly believe that therapy helped me identify the areas of my life that required mending and that God and my faith completed my recovery."

The singer also revealed that she has struggled with her weight and understood that she needed to move on to discover who she truly is. She made the decided action in 2010 and underwent a surgical operation.
