thatisbravesquared[Once a week, I am going to be sharing with you a brave story sent in from a reader. You can comment, respond, encourage. Want to submit your own story or a story of a brave friend of yours? Head to thatisbrave.com!]

This week’s #thatisbrave story comes from Lydia. If you need a reminder of the courage that sits right in the heart of the next generation, here it is. Her words and name are used with her permission.

. . . . .

I am a teen. We got a new girl at school. The details of her home situation aren’t mine to tell, but it isn’t easy. But she is brave every day. She shows up, and she tries and she is present. The school community isn’t reliable, but they’ve come to the scene here. They have bravely made room for her, regardless of what’s “cool.” She is plunged into a broken world with the rest of us, bit she is bravely making the most of it. God is good.

. . . . .

If you have any encouragement for Lydia or her new classmate, leave it below in the comments.

    Hey, Lydia and Friend, thank you for sharing. I read this and instantly thought, wow, that IS brave. I just want to encourage both of you to keep being brave … to keep showing up and being there and being present and being kind and generous even when it’s hard. I’m praying for you this weekend! 🙂
