Sister Francine Perry's bio in her own words. "I am the mother of Laura Perry, who lived as a transgender for almost 10 years.
Paul and I will soon celebrate 54 years of marriage. We have 3 adult children and 2 granddaughters. We have been members of First Baptist Church of Bartlesville for 40 years where I serve as church pianist and accompanist for our sanctuary choir.
After years of “working hard” for the Lord apart from a growing and thriving relationship with Him, God brought a devastating event into my life 14 years ago which resulted in an act of my absolute surrender to Him.
My youngest daughter, Laura, transitioned to and lived as a man for almost 10 years.
Praise the Lord, He was faithful to use this traumatic event to bring me to the end of myself where I found His victory and peace even in the depths of this dark valley.
He has given me the privilege of teaching His Word for the past 12 years to a group of women which has grown from a small group of 12 to a group of about 140 women. Our Bible study, www.comegrowwithmeonline.com currently reaches many countries around the world. My passion is to teach of the freedom and victory found in Jesus Christ for all circumstances of life.
God led me to start a Prodigal Prayer Box and Ministry which has afforded countless opportunities for me to encourage and minister to Moms of prodigals.
God has been gracious to provide many opportunities for me to share my story.
Laura and I have shared our story at several conferences in the last 5 years.
Interviews have been aired by American Family Association, Compelled, Everyday Ministry, Freedom Realized, Revive Our Heart and others.
Laura and I were guests of American Family Association in 2020 during “Prodigal Prayer Emphasis” week. We participated in 12 radio programs encouraging parents regarding their prodigals.
I was privileged to appear in American Family Association’s movie, In His Image."
