Kathie Lee Gifford - Growing in Grace
When we talk about growing in grace, Kathie Lee Gifford is a shining example. She is an American icon, a talented actress, musical artist, and television personality. And she's been through so many things. Yet, she continues to live a life epitomized by grace and love. When asked where her tenacity and drive come from, Kathie says she is a lifetime student of God's word and reads it every day. And, when she reads it, "nobody in the Bible retired. They kept doing what God put them on this earth to do". Kathie Lee loves to work and she thinks it's a valuable gift God gives us for our purpose, our self-worth, and our growth. Being responsible to meet a deadline or keep people employed, and then mix that with the Holy Spirit, gives her purpose every morning and keeps her going. Kathie Lee says she learned from Paul Newman long ago that, "If I've got a pulse, I've got a purpose." She has never entertained the idea of retirement. She has walked with the Lord since she was twelve years old, and while she doesn't know how many days He has for her, she looks forward to finding out.

This curiosity and sense of adventure is part of her continued growth. She has found genuine joy and is the happiest she has been in years. But she shares that, "Happiness is different than joy". She has always been a joyful person because of her walk with the Lord but happiness comes from the word "happenstance". Happiness is related to our circumstance whereas joy is not. She could find joy even in many sad and stress-filled moments, and did, but she is thankful to have now found herself in a rich, warm, and fun season, full of happiness too.

And Kathie Lee has known hard circumstances full of controversy, accusation, betrayal, loss, and hurt. Many single parents have experienced those too and end up feeling rejected and a deep sense of loneliness.
