Early life

Priscilla was born premature and spent some time in the hospital.

When she was ten years old, she felt convicted of her sin and prayed with her dad for salvation.

Along with her siblings, Priscilla was homeschooled growing up. She and her siblings were raised as active participants of Bill Gothard's Institute in Basic Life Principles, and regularly attended the yearly Advanced Training Institute conferences in Big Sandy, Texas.

Her parents were strict growing up, and she and her siblings had weekly scheduled fifteen minute meetings of one-on-one time with their parents.
