This is a story about how one unlikely girl fulfilled her dream of becoming a cheerleader. It’s really a story about hope, and love, and what’s right with the world.
The idea of “cheering someone on” is not a modern concept. Most people think of it in connection to sporting events. However, there are actually many ways and means to be a cheerleader. In biblical times, the Apostle Paul demonstrated his expertise as a spiritual cheerleader. When he couldn’t visit congregations in person, he wrote powerful letters [epistles] to cheer, inspire and teach the Christian followers. In one of those letters, he taught a young disciple named Timothy how to be the best kind of cheerleader:
“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity. – 1 Tim 4:12
A group of High School cheerleaders in Syracuse, Utah and a girl named Brittany Crockett have taken Paul’s instruction to heart. These young ladies defy every negative bias you might have about teenagers. Their story cheers, inspires and teaches exactly how to “Be an Example“, no matter your age, or your circumstances!
