Born in Forks, Washington, on Halloween with a head full of red hair, Lyle says from thereon life only got stranger. She found herself being raised in a plethora of foster care homes and eventually running away from home in her late teens. Although life was hard, Lyle says she was blessed to see many different churches through the eyes of a child seeking refuge and comfort.
Baptized Catholic, she rebelled greatly from her Irish/Scottish roots and became a Methodist in her middle school years joining Cheney UMC where she served as the EWU campus minister while also sitting on the EWU Catholic Newman Center as their ecumenical chair. At 19 she graduated with her BA from Eastern Washington University followed by a fun summer studying Irish history and Literature at NUI in Galway, Ireland. More about Rev. Lyle...
