Spreading the Word

At church last Sunday, my friends Tricia and Darrell were telling me about their daughter, Emily. She's a bright and energetic 14-year-old whose strong will sometimes gets her in some trouble, despite the fact that she's very small--about 5'1".

"She was looking in the mirror," said Tricia. "I asked why. She said she'd been in a fight. Again. She didn't know if she'd gotten a black eye or not."

I asked if Emily would like to take martial arts.

"It might give her the confidence so that kids wouldn't want to mess with her," I said.

I gave Tricia and Emily a Free One Week Pass card (our school passes them out to current students). She seemed interested. I would enjoy having her in class.
