Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.
The joy of the Lord is your strength.
The Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. There is no law against these things!
Number two of three powerful ladies who helped me find Christ is Nise Davies,* a well-known Christian Casting Director and Senior VP of Arbonne, International.
Years before, she was a talent agent, finding and developing future stars. Before that, Nise was a star herself.
During AMTC's earlier years, she was one of our favorite clients: and not just because of her excellence, but more because of her obvious joy. No problem or trouble could bring her down.
Here's the thing: Nise talked about her faith, but she knew (and still knows) how to mix well with outsiders. She's never preachy or condescending, but persistently smiling and helpful.
Nise didn't wave a born-again flag, but we clearly knew she was a Christian. Years before my girls and I took the plunge, consider one thing we said about her:
'We don't know about born-again Christians... but they sure are happy a lot!'
Consistent confidence and lasting joy are undeniably good calling cards. I'm still an understudy of Nise. I want to copy those... who model Him.
