Favorite Bible verse: One of my favorite bible verses is from Luke 1:38, when Mary responds to the angel Gabriel, "Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord. May it be done to me according to your word." I love this verse because it shows me the great trust and faith Mary had in the Lord and how God can call and use us to bring Christ to others as well.
