Nik Wallenda  is a very special man with a very special family.  They are a Christian family and make no excuses for it.  I want to read his book, Balance: A Story of Faith, Family and Life on the Line, one day soon.

On Sunday night (DVR it if you go to church) he will be walking across the Grand Canyon.  It will be aired live (a 10 second delay) on The Discovery Channel.  The pre-show starts at 6:00pm and the walk begins at 8:00pm.  I’m DVR’ing it and probably staying up very late watching the whole show.  Praying all the way, even though by then it will already be over.

My in-laws saw his father, Karl, walk across Tallulah Gorge, in Tallulah Falls, GA on July 18, 1970.  We even have the ticket stub somewhere!  I need to find it and make sure it’s in a special place to pass down to our kids.  I’m crazy like that, I think it’s a very special keepsake.

Anyway, I just wanted to let y’all know about this famous walk by Nik Wallenda on Sunday, June 23, 2013.  Let’s be in prayer for him that he will make it across safely.

You can click on his name above and be directed to his website and learn more about the walk and him and his family.
