Default Just a quick, stupid question about messages on the lock screen

Wife just upgraded to an AT&T S4. I have a modded S3 so its a new phone to me.

She asked me earlier why she can't see text messages on the lock screen. If I send her a message, there is a "Message" window that pops up on the lock screen that says "Messaging" with the time, and below it says "New Message"

When you click on it, it fades the screen except for a large white square section that is totally blank. I'm assuming where the message should show. Is there a way to view the contents of the message on the lock screen? Feeling pretty dumb, I'm not a phone n00b at all...but I'm stumped.

Screen shots:

Once message is received, this shows on lock screen:


When you tap it, this happens:

Go into the settings for the messaging app and enable "preview message". That will fix your problem. As for the box, it's the box in which you must swipe to unlock. When you press the message, the box will pop up, swipe on the box, and then continue to the message. Hope it helped!
