Mike Vinson, Owner of Adams Drugs

RRJ:  Growing up you said you were a church-going straight-laced kid, but not a Christian.  Can you explain the difference?

 

Mike:  Growing up, I went to Sunday School and church every Sunday with my family.  I was never involved in church activities, so I didn’t feel like it was a big part of my life.  I believed in God and Jesus, but never felt like I was filled with the true spirit of Christianity.  I was a pretty straight-laced kid because I had a father who made sure I behaved.  I was never part of the partying crowd in high school.  I really didn’t have time for it, because all my extra time was filled with sports and athletics. During those years, I had some good coaches that tried to steer me in the right direction. One of those was Lee High School Coach Jim Chafin, who I went to visit out in Texas last year.  He definitely was an influence for good in my life.

LaBarron and Lori Boone, Married 16 Years

RRJ:  Have you both been Christ-followers since a young age?

 

Lori:  We both attended church from the time we were babies. We were both baptized as teenagers. However going to church is much different than living a Christ-filled life. That transformation happened while in law school for LaBarron. When adversity hit, his faith was tested and God clearly revealed Himself to him.  LaBarron said it was as if he was having a conversation with God when God clearly said you cannot expect my blessing unless you live a life worthy of my mercy and grace.  At that time LaBarron’s journey began anew and He strove to Honor the Lord. My journey began after law school when I had reached all of my goals and still felt something was missing from my life. I began reading the Bible and experienced my life being transformed when the words came to life for the first time.

RRJ:  You grew up in Gadsden, Alabama in a Christian home. How did your parents create an environment for you to come to know God’s love through Christ?

 

Jodi:  I was blessed to have parents who provided a home of unconditional love. It was not until I became a parent that I began to understand just how much my parents created a home environment of love and support, which established my foundation of confidence and security in my faith.

RRJ:  Even though you were exposed to Christ as a young child, late in high school God began speaking into your heart that He wanted a deeper relationship with you.  How did that happen and how did you respond?

 

Katrina:  I grew up in a very ritual-based church, also attending that church’s school from kindergarten through 9th grade. I practiced those rituals “religiously”, but felt God was calling me in a different direction. So, the summer after I graduated from high school, I was baptized and began attending a new church. It was then that I felt I could truly be expressive with my faith. As I studied the Bible, I realized Christ and the unwavering word of God was all that mattered. I had a relationship and not a religion!

RRJ: Many people associate you with Montgomery because of your nearly 30-year career on radio, but where did you grow up?

RRJ: Linette and Jeff, can you share how each of you came to be a Christ follower and child of God?

 

Linette: I became a Christian when I was nine years old. I understood at that time all I needed to know at that young age…I was a sinner whom Jesus loved and died to save, and the only way to have eternal life was through Him. Over the years, there have been several milestones in my spiritual growth, lots of ups and downs, but my desire is to follow Him and serve Him every day.

RRJ:  You’re the owner of P’zazz Art Studio in Prattville, but that wasn’t the career path you originally thought you would take.  What did you do before P’zazz?

RRJ:  When did you come to the realization that you needed the salvation offered by Christ?

 

I was 17 or 18 years old.  I was watching a PBS special that was showing the U.S. targets of Russia during the Cold War in 1980 or 1981.
