After admitting she hadn’t been reading her Bible and hearing many of her friends talk about the benefits they were getting, my daughter Ashley finally gave it a try. Each day, little by little, her interest in the Bible grew. Her life and attitude was being transformed.
I recently visited her at college and could hardly believe my eyes.
She’s a completely different girl.
At one point during our time together, I asked her, “What finally made following Jesus wholeheartedly click for you?” She said, “Mom, I’ve made friends who love Jesus. I saw a joy in them that I wanted. So, I started doing what they do even when I didn’t want to. At first I thought getting up to read the Bible was unrealistic. But as I kept doing it, the Lord started changing my thought patterns. And when I started thinking about life from the standpoint of Truth, I had so much more joy.”
