By now you’ve probably heard of the fiasco that was Miley Cyrus’ performance at this year’s VMAs. You may have even taken time to check it out for yourself just to see what all the buzz was about. Not long after the music awards aired, a sweet friend mentioned that she was eager to discuss her personal thoughts regarding the performance in a blog post. I’ve been anxiously awaiting her post because I knew it would be, well, different. I knew her thoughts would be different from anything I’ve heard in the media or through the opinions of friends. I knew she had insight the media just doesn’t have—insight you and I don’t have.
You see, this friend is a mom of two young adults (boy and girl) who are just barely out of their teen years. She’s also a woman of God. She’s married to the father of her children, who is a man of God himself, and together they have raised two incredibly strong children with firm foundations. What makes her so different from you and I, though? What’s this insight she has that we and the media don’t have regarding Miley’s behavior? Well, both of her children are in the entertainment industry. In fact, her daughter is not unlike Miley in that she is a talented singer and actress who stars in her own Disney sitcom with a few movies under her belt.
As a Disney mom, she is speaking about this incident with a voice unlike those you’ve been hearing lately. Her eyes have seen things ours have not. She speaks from knowledge and experience, and you might be surprised by what she has to say.
This post opened my own eyes to things that somehow had never crossed my mind before. I hope you take time to read Sandy’s post because I guarantee you’ll gain some insight. After you’ve read it, dig around to see what all she has to share on her page. She’s an amazing woman who, without realizing it, has truly made an impression on me over the years, and she really has a lot to offer. Best of all, she’s speaking from the love in her heart, and unlike many celebrity moms, she’s giving it all to you for free!
