There are many ways to try to be like Steph Curry. You could wear a jersey (basic), become a world class athlete (hard) or be named “Steph Curry” (taken). You could also just read the Bible to kids.
Via Fatherly: “My parents read a lot of Bible stories with me. That’s how I learned my faith, so those are very meaningful to me to share with my kids.”
Curry is talking about his new kids’ book I Have a Superpower, and was asked about the sorts of kids’ books he wants his own three children reading.
“There wasn’t a specific series or book that I had lined up to share with my kids,” he continued. “I tried to be open to what they were interested in. They’re old enough now that I take their lead. They come home with Dork Diaries and that type of stuff. I just love the fact that they are reading to me now. They’re the storytellers, and I’m the audience, and that makes bedtime more fun.”
Curry’s been pretty outspoken about his Christian faith, so none of this is exactly a surprise. But it is a little indicator of a step anyone wanting to get on that Steph Curry energy should take. What you lack in Curry’s athleticism, bank account or sheer drive to succeed might be made up for in something as simple as making sure the next generation is all caught up on the Good Book.
