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.
