Jenna Bush Hager, daughter of 43rd president of the United States George W. Bush, shared with her TODAY co-hosts Hoda Kotb and Savannah Guthrie on Thursday (March 16) that her father texts her a Bible verse every morning.
Bush Hager said the tradition actually started with her fraternal twin, Barbara, after she experienced a bad relationship breakup. Since then, Bush hasn’t stopped sending Bible verses and has since begun texting Jenna every morning as well.
“I actually wake up every morning to a text from my dad that’s a different Bible verse,” Bush Hagar revealed. “I wasn’t included at the beginning. It started when my sister had a bad breakup and my dad just started texting her every morning. And it was something really small but something very steady that she’d look up to.”
