WHAT MAKES REBA TICK? WHY IS THIS WOMAN SO SPECIAL?

ONE THING THAT MAKES HER STAND OUT IS HER FIERCE WORK ETHIC. REBA WAS BROUGHT UP TO KNOW HARD WORK AND THAT HAS MADE HER A GOOD PERSON AND A BALANCED PERSON. RED STEGALL ONCE SAID “I DON’T KNOW A MORE BALANCED PERSON THAN REBA.” REBA’S PARENTS KNEW WHAT THEY WERE DOING WHEN THEY RAISED THEIR LITTLE RED-HEADED GIRL ON THAT RANCH IN CHOCKIE OKLAHOMA. EARLY EACH MORNING CLARK MCENTIRE WOULD ROUSE HIS CHILDREN. REBA AND HER BROTHER AND SISTERS WOULD HAVE TO GO OUT AND CATCH THE HORSES AND READY THEM FOR WORK BEFORE BREAKFAST. MAMA MCENTIRE WOULD FIX A HARDY BREAKFAST AND THEN THE CLAN WOULD HEAD OFF TO WORK THE RANCH. OUT IN THE WIDE OPEN SPACE OF THE OKLAHOMA HILLS, THERE WASN’T MUCH FOR KIDS TO DO. SO, REBA AND HER SIBLINGS WOULD RIDE HORSES, PRACTICE RODEO EVENTS, EVEN CHALLENGE EACH OTHER TO VARIOUS THINGS, LIKE RACING, PULL-UPS, ANYTHING TO ENTERTAIN THEMSELVES. AND FROM THIS, REBA DEVELOPED A FIERCE COMPETITIVE STREAK. IT IS THIS DRIVE THAT KEEPS HER IN THE MUSIC BUSINESS IN TODAYS FAST PACED WORLD. SHE IS CONSTANTLY WORKING TO DO NEW AND EXCITING THINGS EACH YEAR. UNLIKE KIDS THESE DAYS, REBA AND HER SIBLINGS SPENT MUCH OF THEIR FREE TIME OUTDOORS. REBA MARVELS AT THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN HER LIFE AS A CHILD AND HER SON’S.

ANOTHER IMPORTANT THING THAT MAKES REBA SO VERY SPECIAL IS THE FACT THAT SHE IS A CHRISTIAN. SHE HAS SPOKEN OPENLY ABOUT HOW GOD GUIDES HER THROUGH HER LIFE AND OFTEN THANKS GOD FOR BLESSING HER WITH SUCH A GOOD LIFE. REBA GIVES HER GRANDMOTHER CREDIT FOR INTRODUCING HER TO GOD. SHE REMEMBERS TIMES WHEN HER GRANDMOTHER WOULD TELL HER THE STORIES FROM THE BIBLE WHILE THEY WENT FISHING. REBA’S STRONG FAITH IN GOD HAS GOTTEN HER THROUGH SOME OF THE TOUGHEST TIMES IN HER LIFE. IT HAS SEEN HER THROUGH THE PAIN OF LOSING HER COUSIN TO SUICIDE. AND IT HAS SEEN HER THROUGH THE PAIN OF LOSING EIGHT OF HER BAND MEMBERS IN A TERRIBLE PLANE CRASH ON MARCH 16TH, 1991.

REBA HAS FOUND THE POWER OF GOD AND KNOWS HOW HEALING AND UPLIFTING HIS LOVE CAN BE. I BELIEVE HER FAITH IN GOD HAS GIVEN HER THE GIFT OF BEING ABLE PICK OUT SUCH POWERFUL SONGS TO SING. GOD HAS GIVEN HER THE GIFT OF BEING ABLE PICK SONGS THAT PEOPLE NEED TO HEAR.

REBA’S MUSIC IS THE MOST POWERFUL MUSIC I HAVE EVER LISTENED TO. IT HONESTLY TOUCHES THE DEEPEST PART OF MY HEART. AND THAT IS A GIFT FROM GOD. THE MUSIC SHE SINGS AND THAT VOICE OF HER’S ARE TRULY GOD GIVEN! IT SEEMS LIKE EVERYONE OF REBA’S FANS CAN PIN-POINT A SONG THAT HAS TOUCHED THEM, HEALED THEM, CHEERED THEM, AND WARMED THEM. REBA HAS A UNIQUE GIFT AND I CHERISH THAT GIFT BUT NO ONE BUT REBA CHERISH’S IT MORE. SHE HAS SAID THAT SHE WILL NEVER TAKE HER GIFT FOR GRANTED AND ALWAYS GIVES FULL CREDIT TO GOD.

NO MATTER WHAT REBA DOES I WILL ALWAYS LOVE HER AND ALWAYS BE LOYAL TO HER. IF SHE SHOULD CHOOSE TO RETIRE, I WILL SUPPORT HER FULLY IN THAT DECISION. IF SHE SHOULD CHOOSE TO PURSUE MORE OF A MOVIE CAREER, THEN I SUPPORT HER IN THAT TOO. I SUPPORT HER BECAUSE I FEEL I CAN BE NOT ONLY A FAN BUT A FRIEND TO HER.

TRUE FRIENDS SUPPORT EACH OTHER NO MATTER WHETHER THEY AGREE OR DISAGREE WITH THE DECISIONS THAT EACH MAKE. WE SHOULD REMEMBER THAT REBA IS HUMAN. YES, SHE IS A CELEBRITY, BUT SHE IS ALSO HUMAN AND HAS HER LIMITATIONS. IF WE ARE TRULY FANS OF REBA, THEN WE WILL SUPPORT HER THROUGH THE GOOD AND THE BAD.

SO MY FELLOW FANS, LET US CONTINUE TO SUPPORT, TO LOVE, TO CHERISH, AND TO TREASURE, REBA NELL MCENTIRE! SHE IS TRULY A GIFT FROM GOD!
