Robyn Dykstra spent years as a Playboy Bunny, oblivious to God’s master plan for her life.

But she escaped a life of drugs, alcohol, and promiscuity for a fresh start with Jesus.

"When you're really, really pretty and you're willing to trade your looks and your body to get things you want, it gives you a sense of power and control that is addicting," Dykstra explains. "Looking back, I can tell that through all those years, I think I was just trying to feel as good on the inside, as I looked on the outside, but I just couldn't figure out what was missing. All the things that I tried fell short until I found Jesus."

Once she found God she was able to leave that life behind and move on, but not without some bumps along the way.

Dykstra quickly became an accidental expert on the faithfulness of God and finding joy during difficult times when she buried two husbands in four short years. 

She hopes by sharing her story that she can help individuals who have suffered the loss of a spouse to find peace, hope and joy so they can be happy again.

And as a former Playboy Bunny with a reckless disregard for God, Dykstra says she hopes to help those who feel they have had wayward pasts and believe it's too late for God to accept them.

Today on Connections, Robyn shares how she went from a Playboy Bunny to finding Jesus and how her faith remained strong even after experiencing tremendous loss.
