Sharon Mease’s childhood was typical for a conservative Baptist family.
Her family attended church often, and most of her friends and acquaintances also were church members.
But when she was 14, a question became fixed in her mind: Was any of it real?
„There was no event in particular,“ the Spirit Lake woman said of what set off her spiritual doubts. „It just goes with how adolescents question everything. It was just a part of being a teenager, I suppose.“
It didn’t go away. In her 30s, Mease launched an intensive, „soul-searching journey“ that would last 25 years. She read, watched science programs, did a lot of thinking.
