My name is Beverly Deloris Summers. I was born Beverlyn Deloris Blair. Some call me Belle or Bev. I prefer Beverly. I was born in the South, Birmingham Alabama, to the parents of Mr. John Ora, and Marie Latimore Blair Sr. I was the seventh born. Growing up, my family became members of Mt. Calvary Baptist Church. We attended Church and Sunday School every Sunday. I sang in the choir. I got baptized and received Christ at a very young age. Growing up, I was intimidated by my elder sister. She was very manipulative. I would do anything she'd ask me. My sister would hide to smoke and drink. One day she said to me, take a puff and a sip. I choked, the drink taste bad, I decided that neither was for me. She would swear, it sounded awful. I knew those words would not be used in my vocabulary. As time passed, we grew up and went our separate ways. I moved out-of-state. After my dad's passing, I came back home moved with my mother and younger siblings. I became a member of my mother's Church. Later, I moved, got married, became a mother of four. After having children I had a weight problem. I joined a gym and started a walking program. I'd walk inside gym tracks, school tracks, any form of exercise to keep off the weight. As time passed, I divorced, moved, worked two jobs to provide for my children. In two-thousand one, I visited The Guiding Light Church, felt the Holy Spirit presence, became a member the same day. Over the years I've grown to have a very close, personal relationship with God. January fifth, and sixth, two-thousand eight my life was changed.
