Challenge & Courage: Everyone knows the actress with the glamorous life. But most people don't know Audrey's real story. The same actress who won an Oscar, a Tony, an Emmy, a Grammy, and a Golden Globe went through many struggles in her life from 1929-1993. She was Jewish. During World war 2, she had to eat tulip buds to survive. Her family, including her, had to leave England and go to the Netherlands. There she had to learn Dutch to pass for a Dutch girl named Edda van Heemstra. She had to do this she would not get arrested as a girl in her early teens. Her life took a turn when she got a good education at Arnhem conservatory where she studied dance. She eventually became a very famous actress, philanthropist, and UNICEF ambassador. She went to the poorest countries in the world. She visited orphanages in Ethiopia, went on an immunization campaign in Turkey, and traveled to Venezuela, Ecuador, Honduras, El Salvador, Guatemala, and many more before she died at 63 of colon cancer.
Reflection: This inspires us to not complain about the small problems we have. We need to live our lives in a way that glorifies Jesus. We can't give up because we have to go to school or someone isn't being nice to us. Audrey Hepburn went through Wolrd War 2 being persecuted. She gave up her luxuriant lifestyle to serve God. She became the ultimate missionary despite the struggles she had. She kept a smile on her face all along.
