Born into a life of abuse, Pegi was abandoned at an early age and spent time in foster care, mental institutuions and finally ended up in prison. For more about her troubled childhood, read Pegi's story and other short stories she has written.
Pegi's husband who has helped her to deal with her traumatic childhood was a guest on our show and has this to say:
"Religion has kind of a double- edged sword. You can be a religious person and just be a nuisance about it. Or your religion can be effective in changing people's lives. And I believe God needed to change me. "
