Who Is Sandra Ellen McCollom?
Sandra Ellen McCollom was born on the 8th of October 1969, in the United States of America. She will be turning 54 years old on 8 October 2023. She is the daughter of Joyce Meyer and Dave Meyer. Her mother Joyce is a Bible teacher, author, and speaker. Her father Dave Meyer is an engineering draftsman and the vice president of Joyce Meyer Ministries.

Joyce Meyer and her husband Dave Meyer founded the St. Louis Dream Center in 2000.

They are ‘passionate about inspiring hope, empowering leaders, and strengthening families.’ Dave is not Joyce’s first husband.
Joyce Meyer used to be married to a part-time car salesman. The marriage lasted five years.

She states that she returned the money years later. However, their marriage didn’t work out and they divorced.
Sandra Ellen McCollom is the sister of Laura Marie Holtzmann, Daniel B. Meyer, and David Meyer. Sandra said she became a Christian at the age of 8 years. She admitted that she trapped herself in legalism. She grew up with the legalism ideology and trapped her family under it as well. Her life was filled with anxiety, frustration, and stress. She said:
‘From as far back as I could remember I was trapped in a life of legalism. I lived buried under rules and regulations and buried my family under them as well. Although I’d been a Christian since I was 8 years old, I placed myself under the law in an effort to please God.’
“At the base of my legalism were many misconceptions I had about God that resulted in my never feeling like I could measure up to His expectations. I turned almost everything into a rule and lived each day by a very long, unrealistic list that nobody could have kept. My life was filled with anxiety, frustration, and stress.”
In December of 2011, I finally came to the end of my rope as Paul said in Romans 7:24. I prayed a prayer of desperation that day. I said, “God, I can’t live like this anymore, I need serious help.” Sandra has a blog, Freedom Living Ministries which is about her personal journey of grace and how the gospel of grace that Paul preached intertwines into every part of our lives and changes us. She is a pastor at her home church, Living Word Church.
Sandra Ellen McCollom is a published author. She wrote the book, “I Tried Until I Almost Died: From Anxiety and Frustration to Rest and Relaxation”. In I Tried Until I Almost Died, Sandra shares how she left behind her burden of anxiety and fear and shows you how to experience for yourself the freedom of trusting solely in the perfecting power of God’s grace.
