How did Forshia wind up in Rhode Island?
Forshia's husband, Eric, is a retired Air Force Major. Stationed at
Andrews AFB in Maryland in 1980 and later the Pentagon, they continued
to live in the DC area until 1994 when her husband took a job in
Woonsocket, RI. And, that, my friends, is how she got here. Forshia's
father was an Army Master Sergeant, so she has lived many places
throughout her lifetime.
What is Forshia's Biblical training?
Forshia received the Lord in 1978 and began to diligently seek God's
guidance in her daily life through the Word of God and the Holy Spirit.
She not only attended church faithfully but also attended Bible
studies, especially Kay Arthur Bible studies. She found as she applied
the principles of God's Word, her daily life began to change for the
better. In 1990 when the Lord led her to start a Bible study of her own
in her home, she applied for a Biblical correspondence course from
Regent University in Virginia Beach, VA (700 Club). She is a continuous
student of the Word, believing that the Holy Spirit is the greatest
teacher and will use whom He chooses. In
2007 she studied to receive her Minister's District License from the
International Church of the Foursquare Gospel. She now holds an
International License with Foursquare, as well, and was ordained in 2011. Recently she completed a course and was certified in Mental Health First Aid given by the National Council for Behavioral Health, Mental Health First Aid USA.
What study resources does Forshia use?
The Bible, of course, in several translations and a couple of paraphrases: The New International Version, The Amplified, The King
James Version, The Living Bible, and The Message. She consults others
from time to time. Her most important tool other than the Bible is the
Strong's Exhaustive Concordance. She consults two commentaries:
Commentary on the Whole Bible by Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown and the
International Bible Commentary by F. F. Bruce. She also consults an
International Dictionary of the Bible by J. D. Douglas and Merrill C.
Tenney. She finds gleaning from her older 1963 World Book dictionary
more helpful than modern day dictionaries. She also finds the meanings
more pure and often examples are listed using scripture. She encourages
Bible students to purchase an older version of a regular dictionary to
use in their studies; printed around or before 1960.
