Axelrod shares this story about a magnificent mom:

There is a story about four preachers discussing their favorite translations of the Bible. The first one said, "I like the King James Version because of its beautiful English." Another said, "I like the New American Standard version because it¡¦s closer to the original Greek and Hebrew." The third one replied, "I like the Good News version because it's so easy to read. The fourth minister was silent for a moment then said, "I like my mother's translation best." The other three men were surprised. They said, "I didn't know your mother made a translation of the Bible." "Yes," he replied. "She translated it into everyday life. And it was the most beautiful and convincing translation I ever saw."
