Jodi is also a Jehovah Witness. Jodi has one living siblings and one deceased, both parents are living and actively involved in their lives.

It was later that her father became to know Jehovah God and began to witness to others as a family Jodi recalled that she was able to bring her grandmother to serve Jehovah God but still working on her grandfather which she stated was a work in progress. Jodi says she applies herself to teach others of the good news of Jehovah God that they can come to Him, they (the sinners) won't face the wrath of Armageddon. There was one point of the interview Jodi became emotional where she began to tear up, she recalled one particular incident that impacted her life, this is when her little sister Tonya was diagnosed with brain cancer. Jodi said when Tonya condition worsen she spent countless hours at her bedside holding her hand. The outcome for Tonya was terminal she later passed away leaving Jodi heartbroken. Dealing with unimaginable pain Jodi said she turned to the only placed that she found comfort and that was in her faith of Jehovah God, this allowed her to deepened her appreciation of Jehovah God promise that she would see Tonya in Paradise, The Jehovah Witness religion believe this paradise where the remaining faithful will go after the Armageddon is like Heaven there will be no pain, tears, sickness, death, etc. The interview concluded as Jodi read a passage out of her New Translation Bible which seemed to bring a sense of peace within in her.
