Brave Katie

If you know Katie Jo, you know she is very, very shy in new situations or with strangers. It takes her a long time to warm up. (Just like her old man, it seems!) Well, she made me very proud with her performance at the Vacation Bible School program on Sunday morning back in late July.

When the time came for the kids to get up on stage and sing, she went right up without hesitation. I was amazed and proud! She didn’t really sing much and she didn’t make the hand gestures, but she hung in there until the end, despite her discomfort. What a trooper!

Anna Lynn, on the other hand, was her usual diva self. She had no problem at all getting up there, singing her heart out, and doing all the big kid dances and gestures. She made me grin from ear to ear.

I honestly don’t remember what they sang about. Don’t get me wrong, the songs were great and the program was inspiring. But what I do remember clearly is how I could see portents of the future, of my girls turning into strong and smart and brave young women – young women who make their dad very, very proud.




  1. You have the funniest little girls. They’re as opposite as they can be. Maybe one day I’ll be able to say the same?

  2. Don’t be sad, Steve. It’ll happen!
