So a little over 2 years ago, Blade Show 2015, I said a small prayer that made a HUGE impact!
A couple days before the show, I prayed: "Dear Lord, please send me a Knifemaker that I can have the opportunity to learn under. I just want someone to teach me the basics and I know I'll have the work ethic and drive to do the rest." I didn't hear it then, but I believe God responded with: "Not only will I send you a Knifemaker, I'll give you the best!" At the show, my brother Sebo ( @borkablades ) tells us: "you have to meet the Marfione family. You gotta meet Tony. They're some great people!" So one night in the pit, Sebastijan introduces us to the family and we end up talking for hours! Anthony invites us to his Blade show after party and me and my dad (knowing the whole time that God is working) start to freak out!
I told my parents that night: "You know how people say that when God gives you an opportunity, he whispers? Well, I feel like he's screaming in my face!" 😂
Since then, my family has been blessed with the opportunity to move to North Carolina, my dad taking the job as the @microtechknives social media manager, and me becoming an apprentice and having the chance to provide for my family and my future family to come!
And it all started from a small meek prayer! One that sounded so small, I look back at it and laugh because I realize that God had something 100,000X better in store for me and my family
Thank you so much to my family, for seeing the vision and taking a chance on moving, knowing the investment will have a greater reward!
Thank you so much Anthony and Marfione family for taking a chance on a skinny little 15 year old kid just 2 short years ago, and becoming part of our family too!
Thank you so much Sebo, for being someone I can look up to and be proud to call family!
And thank you God, for the life you have given me! I can't wait to change the lives of others, and with you on my side It can only get better!
I LOVE YOU GUYS!!! #GiveItAllToGod #Family #ICanDoAllThings #MarfioneMafia #McCoyClan
