Have you ever wondered how NarroWay got its start? We're going back to the very beginning to walk through the incredible journey with NarroWay founders Rebecca Martin and Yvonne Clark!

CHAPTER FIVE: A REBEL CHANGED


birdie bedBIRDIE –
You can literally look at my college records and see when I accepted the Lord. You see, when I had come home for Christmas that year, my dad had a “gift” for me. It was a letter, from the university, stating that I had been placed on academic probation.
 
REBECCA –
It wasn’t a lack of intelligence that caused Birdie’s failing grades. It was because she didn’t care. She was out late with friends. She missed classes. She didn’t turn in her work. On top of that, she traveled a lot with the bands.
 
BIRDIE –
One day, I handed my World History professor an official excused-absence notice from the music department before class. 
He was a handsome tall Texan and we all had a “crush” on him.
He said: "Girl, you tell those folks in the music department that you’re gonna fail world history if you keep missing class - even if you are excused!"

But when I returned to college after Christmas break, this rebel changed! Rebecca rode back to school with me. We carried our luggage into the dorm room we shared and Rebecca leveled her eyes at me and said:

“From this point on, you won’t make anything less than a B in any class you take!”

CHAPTER FOUR -- 'TWAS THE NIGHT, BEFORE THE NIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

 
birdie tableREBECCA –
I was convinced that if there was one person who would never accept Jesus, it was Birdie. So, when Birdie asked:“Why do you read your Bible?” I realized a remarkable truth: God trusts me with my friend’s eternal soul!
 
BIRDIE –
Rebecca turned to me and answered: “Because my Bible tells me that Jesus is the only way to be saved.”
 
REBECCA –
I thought that sealed the deal! I was not expecting what Birdie said next!
 
BIRDIE –
“I don’t believe there is just one way. People have a right to their own opinions.”

CHAPTER THREE - WHY DO YOU READ YOUR BIBLE?


birdie novaBIRDIE IN HER MOST PRIZED POSSESSION - HER ORANGE CHEVY NOVA I was riding with her the day 80-year-old Nellie P. Denny rammed her beaten-up jalopy into the side of Birdie's orange soulmate. Birdie got out of the car, looked at the damage, laid her head down on the hood of her beloved car and cried!BIRDIE –
Rebecca and I were now roommates, but I still ran with my 3rd floor buddies. In her new role as Mrs. Kefoffer’s "chosen" Resident Assistant, Rebecca assured me that if my rowdy friends or I broke any rules, she would still turn me in. Have you seen the movie MAJOR PAYNE? There are similarities. She obviously wasn’t going for “Most Popular” in the dorm.
 
REBECCA—
It’s a miracle I wasn’t murdered! Back to the roommate deal ... On the bathroom door, facing the bunk beds, was a full-length mirror. Birdie slept on the top bunk. Every night when we turned off the lights, I got in my bottom bunk and flipped on a small lamp attached to my bed. Then I took out my Bible and read.
