Jen Ledger, the drummer for the Christian rock band Skillet, recently shared how she and her family came to faith.

“He just really radically intervened, and He changed me...It’s only by His grace, and goodness, and power that I’ve achieved anything. It was nothing to do with me and all to do with Him,” she said of her transformation to faith in Christ and success as a musician.

According to The Blaze, Ledger shared on the Billy Hallowell Podcast how her whole family came to faith through her brother’s attendance at a Christian school in America. Ledger says she had turned away from the Christian faith and thought Christians were hypocrites, but God intervened and changed her life. After she became a Christian, she also traveled to America and attended the same school as her brother. It was there that she connected with the Christian music scene and tried out to be a part of Skillet.

Ledger also talked about the amazing platform that God has given her to share the Gospel through the music of Skillet, and now, through her upcoming solo EP, titled “LEDGER.”

She shared how John and Korey Cooper, who are also members of Skillet, became her mentors, and how God used her interest in music and playing the drums to glorify Him, since she says she often feels like she is not talented enough, and yet God has clearly blessed her willingness to step out in faith.

“Only God could have done any of it,” she said.
