Davy and Jay in 1954. I recall telling Jay to comb his hair.
It was two years after Chris and I married that Chris told me that I didn't know why I believed what I believed. He also said he didn't believe what I believed. This challenged me. I began to study the Bible. My parents bought two Bibles for me. First I read through a paraphrase of the Bible called "The Living Bible." Second, I used the New International Version of the Bible to study for my class in Bible Study Fellowship.

Shortly after that Chris nicknamed me Billy Bob after Billy Graham because I preached so much. I began to recollect that I had preached to my brothers as well.

First I told Jay to comb his hair. Then I told Davy not to kick people in the back of the head when doing headstands in the back seat of the car. Then there was the time when I was fifteen and Wayne was two. He refused to eat his peas. I told him that there were children in Africa starving as they had no peas to eat. He cried and left the table. Many years later he became a missionary to Africa. He taught Jr. High students how to plant gardens.

If you ask me now I can tell you why I believe what I believe!
