Columbia Law School Alumna Founds E-Devotional

By Emily Belz, WORLD Magazine
The following story was reprinted with permission from WORLD Magazine (www.WorldMag.com).

Bethany Jenkins, an effervescent 32-year-old with a face for television, in 2009 was finishing at Columbia Law School and preparing to take the bar. She had three job offers. A prestigious New York law firm wanted her.

A federal judge offered her a clerkship. And MSNBC's Morning Joe, a top-rated cable news show, offered her a job as chief of staff. The recession was acute at the time, so one job offer was a luxury, let alone three. After a sleepless night, she turned all three down. Jenkins had decided instead to write a daily devotional. She passed the bar, but she prepared herself to work at a coffee shop.

"Am I crazy?" she asked a group of friends over lunch in Union Square the day after she turned down the jobs.
