Taylor Swift recently donated $50,000 to a young fan who is battling Leukemia after the girl's family led a viral campaign to get the pop star's attention.
On June 25, Naomi Oakes, an 11-year-old Christian girl from San Tan Valley, Arizona, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and she chose Swift's Billboard chart topping hit "Bad Blood" as her "fight song." The rare form of cancer will require a six-to-nine months hospital stay as part of Naomi's course of treatment, which has devastated the Swift fan because it means she will miss the Grammy award-winning singer's Aug. 18 concert in Phoenix.
Naomi received tickets to Swift's show as a Christmas present and had made plans to attend with her "bestest best friend Piper" before she received the heartbreaking diagnosis at Cardon Children's Hospital in Mesa. more >>
As adults of this generation we know how important it is to have our vision with all the different types of technology. We often use our vision to help us read text messages or see images clearly. This little girl has had some issues seeing clearly until she put her new glasses on. It was a priceless reaction!
For toddlers, it becomes more difficult to communicate when they have discomfort. But due to some obvious signs, this girl was able to get help. Vision is something many of us tend to take for granted, even though it is something that guides us through life and helps us clearly make decisions. A young person's first pair of glasses is usually followed by complete awe. It hurts because their perception of the world is a lot different than those people who are able to see.
This little girl has her glasses put on and sees the world clearly for the first time, and her reaction is guaranteed to make you smile! more >>
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback and prominent Christian athlete Tim Tebow spoke to a crowd of more than 2,000 Christians Saturday at God's Purpose for America, an event to encourage individuals to stand up for Judeo-Christian values.

"What's amazing when you get up and do something is what God does in your life," Tebow told the crowd, according to The Daily News Journal. "We just have to get up and do something."
Tebow referred to himself as a "Christian who happens to be an athlete," and said that his faith always comes first in his life. more >>

This group spends most of their time working at their family tire shop. In their spare time, they get together and sing and play instruments. They call themselves The Mountain Faith Band and they have a bluegrass style that everyone can enjoy!
It's one thing to be a bluegrass singer and appeal to a certain crowd, and it's another to appeal to all kinds of audiences. When they step on stage, no one is quite sure how to judge them. But when the music begins to play and the lead singer opens her mouth, a unique and beautiful voice comes out. When you hear their cover of "Country Stars" you will be amazed! The judges, who in most cases don't prefer bluegrass music, enjoyed the performance.
