It’s all the same stuff I tried to teach you twelve years ago. Actually, I doubt you do remember – at least the Algebra you sure don’t! As we always tell you when you attempt to answer a question that requires math: “Please, don’t tell anyone that you were homeschooled!” Honey, though you never really got the math, you did succeed at making me laugh every day. In fact, you still do. Thank you for that!

Enough about schooling now! I’m supposed to be writing a post for the girltalk book club, which actually, I’m very excited about. We received many wonderful conversion stories. Once again, y’all make it so hard to choose just one. So we chose three. Natalie was raised in the Mormon church, Aisha was a practicing Muslim, and Olga saw the errors of Jehovah’s Witness teaching. Thanks to each of you for sharing your dramatic story of God’s redeeming grace!

I hope these three testimonies fill you with fresh faith for evangelizing members of other religions. Most of all, I pray you are filled with fresh wonder and gratitude for God’s divine rescue of your own life.

Finally, we are not going to ask a question this week. That’s because we have a friend we want you to hear from instead. She will share her story of learning, like Mary, to sit at Jesus’ feet. May we all do the same!
