Oh please! The piano? I say this as a wife and mother of musically gifted people, of which I am not. Talent is talent. Why would you think playing the piano is better than anything else that showcases one’s God given talent?
Again, the ignorance on this thread is astounding.
In my mind, it’s “ignorant” to put a family’s financial security in jeopardy in order to pamper a kid. It’s cool what she has achieved, and she’s adorable, but the family couldn’t afford it. At least the medals will be lucrative for the family, and maybe they’ll find someone who can show them how to handle money.
As for the talent for God’s use... My husband knew a girl who was a “worship fairy” flitting around church services in a diaphanous gown. That might be be a good fit for someone with gymnastic talents.
