Another Prophetic Picture

The joke around our house is that someday, we’ll all be working for Gracie.

Gracie is our middle daughter, and the third of our four kids. And she’s a leader. Headstrong. Hasty. Loud. Confident. Always the first to volunteer. A perfectionist. With an overdeveloped sense of right and wrong. Truth-teller. Competitive. Direct.

Come to think of it, she’s a handful.

But she’s our handful. And she’s a wonderful handful. And, while I think she’s going to need to have some of her rough edges tempered and rounded off, may she never lose what I think is her basic, most foundational drive:

To lead.

Gracie’s class has an oral interpretation competition tomorrow, and Grace has a solo. Today, as I was watching rehearsals, I snapped the following picture. To me it captures our Gracie at her best. Leading her peers, showing the way.

I’ve said this before, but this Challenging Tertullian stuff is personal for me. Because when it comes to women and leadership, any barriers, theological, cultural, ecclesiastical and more, need to be torn down. Why?

So that Gracie can lead.
