Increase Week in Review 12/26-12/30

Want to catch up on the latest articles by the pros from the past week? Here’s what they had to say:


Monday Philadelphia Eagles Chaplain Ted Winsley shared how to Break the Cycle of Rejection:


We are all born into sin and rejected because of iniquity. God doesn’t desire for us to be merely saved from our sin, but to be free from our sin. There are many saved people who are far from free. God wants us to receive His great gift and understand that this gift overrides and overcomes any sort of rejection.”


Tuesday Chicago Bears fullback Brandon Boykin shared how his unexpected off-season turned into an opportunity for ministry:


“Today I understand that whatever my testimony is supposed to look like—whether that means I am struggling just for a time or for longer—I know that God is setting me up for something much greater than myself.”


Wednesday Professional pitcher Mark Appel talked about what are Ultimate Truths what are not:


“Studying Scripture and understanding theology is important, but we can study Scriptures backward and forward and still not know God. Just like we can know the game of baseball and memorize the stats of our favorite players, we can read a lot of facts about God, but if we don’t have a relationship with Him, then we don’t really know Him.”


Thursday Former NFL running back Joshua Vaughan shared how he’s choosing to Dream Big:


“I still want to dream big, I still want to be bold in my faith, even if “all I am” is a retired football player and a father—as if that’s somehow “less” than what I was as a pro football player. We all need to be obedient to what God is calling us to do, being willing and ready to take a step of faith. If you notice you’re not dreaming as big, or your dreams don’t come as often as they used to, maybe something has to change.”


Friday Professional Pitching Coach Michael Schlact shared what it was like to switch from a life on the field to a career in coaching:


“I had spent my entire life working towards one career, picturing it how I thought it should be, and suddenly that was all taken away from me. But as I watched my career as a player end and my career as a coach begin, I started to see God’s purpose in His plan. When everyone said that I should have been mourning my playing career, God showed me what I was really meant to do—to coach.”
