Sally Lloyd Jones has a gift. She has a gift for beautifully telling the greatest story ever told. In my stack of devotional books I carry from one favorite perch to another, you will find the following: my Bible, Charles Spurgeon’s Morning by Morning, and Sally’s The Jesus Storybook Bible. A dear friend of mine arranged for me to meet this sweet gift. It was a day I will NEVER forget. Sally was just as I imagined her to be soft, loving, frank, and not afraid to enter the suffering of another.

When my husband and I first got married, we prayed every night for mentors. We didn’t have many deep relationships at all when we first got married, as we hadn’t lived in the area for very long before we tied the knot, so we certainly didn’t have any healthy relationships with older married couples. We longed for that. We were young—still in college—and wanted to start our marriage off strong, with an older man and woman to guide us along the way. A good prayer, right?
