At the age of 8, she made a public decision to follow Christ at an open-air crusade in a local high school football stadium and was baptized in the Baptist church soon after the crusade.

It was a miraculous deliverance from fear and anxiety which was the underlying issue that caused the need for alcohol.
In the winter of 1979, Dr. Cindye had been diagnosed with leukemia when a friend whom she had known in 6th grade, came to her home to pray for her headache (not knowing anything else was wrong). The next doctor’s appointment showed no sign of leukemia.
In 1999, Dr. Cindye was driving in a van with her mother. A jeep hit her and flipped the van over. Both she and her mother were removed from the vehicle by the fire department with the “jaws of life” – a tool used to pry off the windshield. Dr. Cindye’s mother had five cracked ribs and Dr. Cindye was crippled as her hips had been crushed. After three days of taking pain medicine, she was quickened by the Holy Spirit to take communion in her home. The pain started to subside, and she regained the ability to walk again.
In 2014, Dr. Cindye had developed a malignant tumor from the car wreck mentioned above. God gave her faith to see a doctor who sent her to the best surgeon in the world, based nearby in Atlanta. She kept hearing in the Spirit, “The same God that heals pays the bills.” The surgery was successful with no radiation or chemo. The cost was $53,000 and it was completely paid for in full.
