On Tuesday I attended an assembly at Katie's school. The jr. high teachers sent out a little invitation to the parents letting us know what the presentation would be about. I thought it sounded really good. And it was really good. I am very thankful that Katie and her classmates got to hear from this remarkable man.
The fact that he was a football player for Notre Dam and the Green Bay Packers makes him more interesting to the kids, I think. He was a good story teller and shared his personal experiences along with the stories of friends and family. He told how attending NFL chapel before the games lead him to a more serious personal relationship with Christ. He also stressed making wise choices and challenged the audience to read thru Proverbs; one chapter a day. His parents were not exactly positive role models for him so I think that is why he stressed how important good friends were to a successful life.
(Two of Mr. McCoy's Notre Dame friends were in the audience.)
His ministry says 'Reaching Students in Catholic Schools' but I see no reason why any school that is allowed to have 'religious' speakers come to school would not love to hear Mike McCoy.

Katie is getting her hair cut today. Really short. Like Twiggy short. Carrie Mulligan short.
She woke up early today she is so excited.
I'm nervous. But I don't know why. She will be fine. As Melinda says, it's just hair.
So get ready for a new Katie Gracie!
