So speaking of "Girls Night Out" I received a few wonderful positive e-mails about Kate's recent trip in Texas this past week at the Champion Baptist Church. That girl is now a very busy woman and even I can't keep track of all the places shes been recently! From what I hear, this show was in the thousands and everyone had a wonderful time. I would like you to read a letter I got from Beka who was at the event and whose photo is above.
"I am a christian and I believe that she truly has a heart for God. So she doesn't look perfect on TV. Well who does really? The Bible says He that is without Sin must cast the first stone. Well those people bashing her probably are not Christians because if they are then they need to get right with God because they are not sinless. Who are they to judge when they are not perfect. She is the most amazing person and Let me add I used to work at boys and girls country in Texas which is a childrens home. I lived with 8 teenage girls. 8!!! And they were from all different backgrounds and some with special needs. I lost my voice because of the strain of taking care of them because as you see with Kate it requires a ton of discipline and TALKING...I had to leave my job because my voice couldn't take it, but those girls changed my life. I know how kate feels because in a different way I have been there and I wasn't always nice to the girls. I got annoyed and lost my temper. I am Anal too and organized. In fact I'm a professional organizer so we are a lot alike. My family says i am always in my own mood. Well aren't we all?
The place Kate spoke at was sold out. Seated 4,000 and so they had to have another show that seated another 4,000 so they ended up feeding the midday show lunch. I guess kate knew they would need it. When Kate came out she was given a standing ovation. I was amazed. I knew she was loved, but seeing all those christian women from all walks of life being encouraged by her too. WOW!
I have a twin sister(identical) and because my parents believed like Kate and Jon they didn't have an abortion which was what the doctor suggested because of my mothers age. We were also born healthy. Now at 25 years old my twin and I face difficulties every day with trying to follow God no matter what and watching Kate and Jon and all those amazing kids reminds us just how special being a multiple is. We were hand picked by God. Meeting Kate even for a second, even though I only got to say thank you and she said your welcome..it was amazing and encouraged me so much that I want to pray for them more than before. She is now so real to me and not just some TV star. I saw her face to face. The line for her signing was so long it took us an hour to get to see her, and there was tons of people behind us. AND...she had to sign more at the show before. So all the things people say about her, come one. She works harder than most people I know, and yet you don't see her buying things much for herself. She uses coupons, buys for the kids, and saves. And she gives back too. She is a woman after God's own heart. I hate to say this but all the people who spend their time judging her will have to face their judgment one day when they meet God face to face. They will one day see that God doesn't honor that and if they are Christians than how they live on earth will be shown to them when they get to heaven.
I'm sure not perfect, nor is Kate. But I know that when we both get to heaven it will be amazing because we will have at least tried to follow God no matter what others say or do to us. We will fight the good fight."
Thanks Beka! I just read on MomHouston.com and from Barbara that Kate was also on Friday doing a book signing at Barnes and Noble in Pearland Texas Town Center Friday night from 6-9 p.m. Alot of people also went to that and said Kate was wonderful. Guess they have alot of fans from Texas! Take a look to your right, I updated from my post HERE the updates speaking engagements of Jon & Kate. If you know of any I haven't listed please e-mail me!
