Michael Vick's story reminds us that there is hope for all of us!

Upon reading about Michael Vick, we are reminded that there is redemption for anyone who trusts in Christ, and prays for forgiveness.  His friend and mentor Tony Dungy modeled how important it is that we strive to Make A Difference in our lives.  If you have ever thought that you couldn't make a difference, maybe this paragraph from day 29 of Pastor Rick Warren's book The Purpose Driven Life will encourage you.

Abraham was old, Jacob was insecure, Leah was unattrractive, Joseph was abused, Moses stuttered, Gideon was poor, Samson was codependent, Rahab was immoral, David had an affair and all kinds of family problems, Elijah was suicidal, Jeremiah was depressed, Jonah was reluctant, Naomi was a widow, John the Baptist was eccentric to say the least, Peter was impulsive and hot-tempered, Martha worried a lot, the Samaritan woman had several failed marriages, Zacchaecus was unpopular, Thomas had doubts, Paul had poor health, and Timothy was timid. That is quite a variety of misfits, but God used each of them in his service. He will use you , too, if you stop making excuses.

Tim Tebow is SUPER!

Sure I am a Florida Gator fan, but a far bigger fan of Jesus!  Whether you a Gator fan or not, it's hard not to be a fan of Gator quarterback Tim Tebow.  There has been controversy surrounding the Super Bowl this year due to the Focus On The Family commercial featuring Tim Tebow's story.  The commercial is very sweet, and certainly nothing controversial, in my opinion. 

If you missed the video, here's a link to the Focus on the Family website so that you can see it, and a great follow-up video with Tim's parents. 

I think that you'll love hearing Tim's miracle story, and how much of a difference you can make as a parent.  I hope this encourages you today! 

We would love to hear how you encourage your kids....
