For anyone who doesn’t know who she is, she’s the amazing actress who starred in Soul Surfer, Race to Witch Mountain, Bridge to Teribithia, etc. I kind of met her at camp, and I was surprised by how completely normal she was. She didn’t revel in any attention her fans gave her, she actually didn’t want it. She was rather short, and somehow doesn’t look to be in her movies, and she didn’t dress in any way that said she was famous.

I must say though, I do not covet her fame. I observed the expression on her face when someone asked for a picture and when one of my friends went up and introduced herself, and she looked…tired. So now I am praying for her to have peace and to trust in God to support her.
