HAVELOCK, NC - Roughly three months ago, local woman Heidi Miller, 32, had had enough - and was bound and determined to change her lifestyle.

"I'd been this way since I was a kid - just, you know, life habits I picked up from my parents and my friends at church," Miller said. "Then one day it just hit me as I walked past a mirror and caught a glimpse of my open Bible on the chair behind me, next to some commentaries and other study materials. That was the moment I realized that I'd been reading the Bible in its proper context for so long, I couldn't even remember what it was like before I did."

A burst of courage and a quick internet search brought Miller to Rick Warren's The Daniel Plan - and nothing has been the same since.

"At first I was skeptical, sure, but after just a few days in the program I couldn't believe the results I was seeing," she said, adding that she was "blown away" by the Old and New Testament verses used in the book as though they existed in a vacuum, and the way Warren switches up translations in order to find the one that says exactly what he is trying to say.

"I followed the steps - I dreamed big, set goals, and found buddies to reaffirm me when things got tough, and here I am. After 15 years of only reading the Bible in context, those days are gone and I'm never going back," Miller said. "The Daniel Plan was a Godsend - it worked for me, and it can work for you, too."
