Latoya was born in Jackson, MS. Her family then moved to Nashville, TN on her first birthday. Latoya married Chris Lackey in 1995 in Gladeville, TN. In 1998 they welcomed their son, Christopher Jr., into the world. Later that same year they joined the Mt. Juliet Church of God in Mt. Juliet, TN. From the day she became a Christian at 18 years old, Latoya always knew she would preach the word of God.
But first, God had a lot of work to do in Latoya. She had a history of abuse, teenage pregnancy and abortion, living the "party" lifestyle and running in all the wrong directions. God began to teach her about love, submission, forgiveness, and mercy. She learned through years of prayer and fasting (and crying and screaming like a 2 year old) to be the woman God had created her to be. She found that God loved her just the way she was but, refused to leave her that way. She learned what it was to be a good wife and mother (Even when it was hard. As she likes to put it, "to bring a glass of tea to your husband instead of throw it at him"). She learned to love her husband, the way God intended her to. The first few years of marriage were not easy. But, after 7 years of fasting and praying God worked a miracle in the life of her husband, Chris, and gave her a new man! ("Old Chris vs. New Chris") As usual with God, much of His work in their marriage started with Latoya. God helped her to see her past clearly and be set free by His holy word. Being set free from her past enabled Latoya to freely love in a new way. From there God worked miracles... In 2006, Latoya became a licensed minister with the Church of God. For the next 10 years, with Chris by her side, she served as Youth Pastor of the Mt. Juliet Church of God. They retired from youth ministry in October 2016. They both still serve in ministry at the church. Latoya is the choir and drama director and Chris still teaches the Sr. High Sunday School and is head Usher.
