The Writer: Seth Yergin

Born and raised in Akron, Ohio. A lot of what inspires my writing has come from my experiences growing up. I was raised in a fairly conservative household. Were my experiences traumatic? No. I was lucky enough to have two parents who loved, cared for, and were present for me. That being said, my experiences within the church were... bonkers (to say the least).

The churches that my family was affiliated with growing up never quite considered themselves pentecostal, but that's the closest comparison I can make. From the earliest ages, we spent every Sunday Morning, evening, and Wednesday evenings... Go to bio
