Katy McCown is a member of the Proverbs 31 Ministries writer team and a speaker who seeks to empower women to walk the firmly established steps the LORD lays out for them. Katy left her job as a television news reporter to join her husband, Luke, on their adventure in the National Football League. They’ve spent the last 13 years in the NFL where Luke has played primarily as a backup quarterback. Luke and Katy have 6 children ranging in age from toddler to pre-teen.
Now that we have that out of the way …
Hi friend, I’m Katy. I would much rather sit across the table from you and sip on my favorite dark roast coffee while I tell you all about myself. And the first thing I’d do is let you in on a behind-the-scenes look at the precious video at the top of this page.
We filmed it one hot, summer day at our “home base” in Texas. I completely forgot to mention it to Luke until five minutes before we started. So, Luke made a quick (and a tiny bit reluctant) wardrobe change then sat down beside me to do one his least favorite things – talk. You may also notice a few kids missing from the video. My oldest two boys were at camp. They are not happy about being left out and suggest we re-film immediately.
Then, I’d probably say something like, yes, I’ve been to a lot of football games in the last decade. And yes, I have 6 beautiful, wild children who we homeschool – sometimes successfully and sometimes unsuccessfully. We’ve moved about a dozen times in the last 13 years and the mess in my van proves it. I’m an expert packer but a really terrible unpacker.
It’s safe to say the road has been anything but predictable. But through all of the uncertainties and surprises, I’ve learned some secrets about living sure even when the future is not. Because even when God’s path seemed to sideline my plans, it never sidelined my purpose. Which is a large part of what birthed the She Laughs Conference.
I’d love for you to spend some time around our web site. I feel a little bit like I’m inviting you into my home. I’m so glad you stopped by, and I hope you take your time, get comfortable and stay awhile.
