Hey everyone. . . sorry for the delay in posting. . .
Have a look at this documentary, aired in the UK a couple of weeks ago. It's about 13-year-old Deborah Drapper - one of eleven children, living with her family on their farm in Dorset, England. They homeschool. Deborah is passionate about God and telling others about Him. She shows incredible courage when witnessing to others about Jesus - I felt very challenged after watching this!
A lot of Christians have been saying that Deborah seems to be lacking in the "joy of the Lord" - but people, please bear in mind that the BBC captured over 100 hours of footage to make this 1 hour documentary! They would have ruthlessly edited the footage to make Deborah and her family appear as "weird" and religious and joyless as possible. This is disappointing, but it is only to be expected, I suppose - especially from the BBC.
To get a more rounded picture of Deborah's life, you might want to have a look at her blog. She's just an ordinary 13-year-old girl who loves God and loves her family.
Many thanks to Alex and Brett from The Rebelution for posting about this program.
