Maybe you've been on the bench...maybe you've been overlooked too.  

If so, you’ll find hope and encouragement in the story of a guy that went from benchwarmer to superstar this week. His name is Jeremy Lin.  He never gave up his dream even though he was overlooked and underestimated. He’s a basketball player that you probably never heard about it until this week when he went from Benchwarmer to Superstar.  A guy on his team, The New York Knicks got injured, so he was finally put in the game and he is showing everyone what no one knew he is capable of.   He’s helping his team finally win.

More people that didn’t give up and have finally succeeded:

-Dr. Seuss was turned down 59 times before he was published.

-Jennifer Hudson didn't make the top 5 in American Idol

-Tom Brady was passed over in the draft by every NFL team 5 times.

-David the runt of the family, was chosen to be king

Just goes to show if you feel overlooked, underestimated, turned down, don’t give up.   Believe in your dreams even if no one else does.  Maybe we can add you to our list of People that didn’t give up someday! Tell me about a time when refused to give up…

Well, my daughter's song, "Little Baby Loved" by Cathryn Joanna, as seen on YouTube, was overlooked by K-Love, unfortunately, this past Christmas season. We are hoping and praying that K-Love picks it up for the 2012 Christmas season (and beyond), because this song is beautiful and impactful. It was picked up by some other Christian radio stations across the country, and it has been heard (via YouTube) on every continent on the globe, including many places where it is difficult or nearly impossible to preach the gospel. Our goal is to reach every country in the world with the true message of Christmas. . .we haven't given up on K-Love though.

I love that he is a faithful & humble Christian & LOVES our LORD, and is giving all the glory to Jesus! I am also proud that he is Chinese, & his parents came from the place I was born. Laughing

I am so glad that you liked the song. She is still writing songs, and we hope to get another one recorded sometime soon. In the meantime, please pray for God's guidance as we choose a college/university to continue her education in Music/Songwriting/Recording/Performance. If there is anything that you can do to help "Little Baby Loved" get played on K-LOVE next Christmas season, that would be great,too! God bless Smile

@ Gail....wow, she is sooo young!  Laughing  I guess I will be praying for your daughter, and mine since she'll be graduating in June and off to college/university too...but studying in pre-med.  May God bless and continue to guide our daughters.  Take care.
