6-year-old Cameron Brundidge helps ease her brother Brandon’s anxiety during the coronavirus outbreak by teaching him a Bible verse on fear. And we could likely all do with this reminder today!
Minnesota woman Sheletta Brundidge is a comedian and mother of four. And this family is strong in their faith.
"We just believe in faith and we believe in Jesus, and we're not afraid to say it," Sheletta says.
Sheletta’s son, Brandon, suffers from crippling anxiety because of his autism diagnosis. And when 6-year-old Cameron saw her brother tensing up after seeing the news about COVID-19, she knew just what to do. It was time to use a Bible verse on fear to remind him of God’s truth!
Powerful Moment Between Brother And Sister
The siblings, Brandon and Cameron, hold hands as they recite 2 Timothy 1:7 together.
"But God did not give me a spirit of fear, but power, love, and a sound mind."
Cameron has her brother recite the words after she says them. And after they finish saying the verse, the pair embrace with a loving hug.
Sheletta said that Cameron learned the Bible verse on fear at Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Minneapolis.
"She has autism, too," shares Sheletta about Cameron. "And for her to remember that - that was just amazing and a blessing to me. I’m so proud of her. She didn’t just tell him to believe in God, but she gave him a Scripture, and not only that but the right one.”
Not only is Sheletta proud of her daughter, but she said that this interaction between her children changed the way she was looking at things.
"While the world is stocking up on toilet paper and mayonnaise, jars of pickles and bottled water, she realized - at 6 years old - that it was only [Brandon's] faith that was going to get him through this," she says. "Just from the mouth of a child to another child, it transformed the way I looked at it. We don't have to be afraid of this. There's been worse. We just have to rely on our faith, take the precautions we need to take and continue to live our lives."
