A Conversation with Letitia Wright

You probably recognize Letitia Wright as Shuri, the technological genius stealing scenes from her brother King T’Challa in 2018’s Marvel blockbuster, Black Panther. But Letitia has actually been appearing on television since 2011, receiving nominations for an Emmy and a British Independent Film Award (among many others), and winning a BAFTA award and an NAACP Image Award. And if you follow her on social media, you’ll also know that Letitia boldly proclaims her faith in Christ.

In this exclusive video, Letitia reveals the Bible verse a friend shared with her that set her on the path toward finding new life in Jesus. She also shares why the Bible App means so much to her.

Join Letitia for Overcoming

When you see the vibrant spirit and abundant joy that she radiates today, it’s hard to imagine that Letitia once struggled with depression and self-doubt. Join Letitia in her new 3-day Video Plan, Overcoming, and let her encourage you with the same Scriptures that helped her discover victory and confidence in her identity in Christ.

What are your #RelationshipGoals?

Have a Plan
for Every
Relationship.

Whether you’re single, dating, married, or “it’s complicated,” your relationships matter to God. We are all commanded to “love the Lord your God … and love your neighbor as yourself.”

It’s challenging to love others well if you don’t love God first. But loving God isn’t enough. His love needs to transform the way you view yourself. When you see yourself the way God sees you, you can love others the way God loves you. To have #RelationshipGoals, seek God first in every relationship.

PHILIPPIANS 4:6

Healing? Peace? Protection? A breakthrough? Are you praying for yourself? Or for someone you care about? Whatever you’re praying for, consider inviting someone you trust to pray with you.

Share each other’s burdens, and in this way obey the law of Christ.

GALATIANS 6:2

Hopefully you’ve already discovered that YouVersion’s new Prayer feature is a great way to keep track of everything you’re praying for. But YouVersion Prayer also lets you include friends in your conversation with God. When you add a Prayer, all you need to do to invite others to pray is tap Share with Friends.

Share with friends on Prayer card

The Prayer Chain feature lets your Bible App Friends share your Prayer with their Friends, who can then share it with their Friends, and so on.
