Jonah Larson from Wyoming is an 11-year-old crochet prodigy. When he was 5 he taught himself to crochet by watching YouTube videos. A few years ago, Jonah started posting pictures of his work on Instagram. Basically, he broke the internet with his crocheting skills. People started messaging him asking if they could buy the blankets, scarves, and hats he was making. Since he’s so young, his mama runs his insta, but he’s been selling all his stuff! He now has over 50k Instagram followers and more orders than he can fill at times. The most amazing part is that he gives some of the money he makes to the Ethiopian orphanage he was adopted from. Jonah says his goals are to attend West Point Military Academy and become a surgeon when he grows up. Now THAT is one incredible 11-year-old. Jonah Larson, you’re my #FavoriteKidOfTheWeek ow.ly/alsV50lvjbm...

With his hand skills I’m sure he’d be an amazing surgeon!
Evie Murray Step it up woman!
WoW! Impressive !
I just saw a video on him this morning! I'm going to show it to my 6th graders in our advisory class and bring in hooks and yarn for them to try it out. My grandma used to do it all the time and donate roller skate crocheted booties to our local hospital. 🤩
I taught myself to crochet, left handed.
Sally look at this!!
God bless this little guy for more than remembering where he came from and his hopes for his future.
Mike nominated his friend Christine to be our #WomanWhoRoars this week!! Here’s what he told us:
I’d like to nominate Christine Aulenbach. She was currently battling Scleroderma when last month, her 7 year old son, Henry, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor. Christine has shown her strength as a mother by her unwavering willingness to fight this with her family head-on, posting constant updates and keeping Henry in happy spirits. Thank God, the tumor was removed. They just have a great deal of treatment to go through next. Christine, despite the terrible hand she and her family has been dealt, stands strong, proud, and confident that hope will see them all through. That’s why I’m emailing you.
Christine started a blog called “hope for henry” which she hopes will become an interactive site for other families dealing with the same issues to share and connect, be there for each other, and combine resources. This woman is fighting her own battle against Scleroderma, which is a debilitating autoimmune disease, and now she’s helping her baby fight cancer all while remaining so positive and hopeful.
I am proud to add this amazing mama to our list of #WomanWhoRoar. Keep fighting Christine! We’re all rooting for you. Here’s the website Christine created for Henry: hopeforhenry.us/...
We were able to send over 60 gift cards to kids fighting cancer in 5 different states thanks to YOU! If anyone deserves a little love and smiles on Valentine’s Day, it’s these brave kids. Great job Team Apple a Day!!! ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️ #appleaday #cancersucks ...
