Those who are in the public eye become role models whether they want to or not. We should all be role models for Christ. One of my favorite sayings is, "If your Christianity isn't contagious, then it's contaminated." We don't have to be in the public eye to influence and impact those around us. Think about your everyday life and those you come in contact with each day. Do you spread the Good News through your actions - even with a simple smile?

Whether we are a famous in the eyes of the world or not, we are ALL famous and precious in the eyes of our Lord. We are each a celebrity in our own way. God made each of us unique and special. We are one of a kind. And "God don't make junk!" (That was on a button I received at a retreat in college, and I love it!)

Peace in Christ,
