90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days Season 6 newcomer Meisha Johnson wasn’t always a religious zealot.

The brunette beauty experienced a “profound spiritual awakening” in her living room over a decade ago and has since devoted her life to the Roman Catholic church.

“While I was vacuuming my living room, I had a vision of two huge suns suspended out of the sky in front of my window,” Meisha confessed during her first segment on 90 Day Fiance: Before the 90 Days.

“And I started to sink down to the ground, almost [as] if something was pushing me down,” Meisha continued, adding that a voice told her to get on her knees and begin praying, which was the beginning of her religious conversion.

Before making her reality TV debut last month on TLC, Meisha worked in an industry completely different from the work she currently does.

Meisha has devoted herself to her faith, working full-time in the field, and found love with Israeli native Nicola Kanaan, who shares her religious beliefs.
