Podcast Episode 150: Shine!

    Apr 10, 2023

    I went to a prom not long ago, and I have to tell you that the night had hardly begun, and already everyone was absolutely, shamelessly drunk …on joy.

    It was so different from the prom misadventure of my youth.

    The prom of my adulthood, however, was a different story…because this was Night to Shine: an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs, and sponsored by the Tim Tebow Foundation.

    Over 200 guests attended; I was one of the over 400 volunteers, and I must say that I have never seen so much pure joy in one place in my life. Which is a whole lot more than I can say for my very disappointing high school prom experience.

    From a special dinner to singing karaoke to unlimited popcorn and cotton candy to dancing under the lights to having confetti and streamers thrown on you and riding in an enormous limousine, to having your caricature drawn and your hair and makeup done and your clothes altered to fit you just right—it was all arranged with great love to make sure every guest could shine from the inside out and feel celebrated, all night long, and long after.

    Listen in to be inspired to celebrate someone who might really need some affirmation right now—even if that someone is you!
