Early Life

Priscilla Lynn Keller was born on July 3, 1986 to Mike Keller and Suzette Stembridge. She was the couple's fourth child, and they went on to have four more children after her.

The Kellers raised their children with strict rules, and had weekly 15-minute meetings scheduled for each individual child to talk with his or her parents. When she was ten years old, she felt convicted of her sin and prayed with her dad for salvation.[2] In 1996, her father made the decision to quit his job and begin working in full-time ministry at a local juvenile detention center. Priscilla often accompanied her father on these trips and lead Bible studies for incarcerated young women.[1] Along with her siblings, Priscilla was homeschooled, and completed high school at the age of sixteen.
