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

 

Monday St. Louis Cardinals Matt Holliday has found encouragement even in the midst of an unexpected trial. Here what he has discovered about his faith and his community during this time:

 

“It is hard to sit back and watch from home as my team is on the road or on the field. Since I’m not in the day to day grind with my teammates it can almost feel as if I am not a part of the team. But I’ve been so encouraged by the support that my teammates have given me.”

Tuesday NFL’s Tyler Clutts shared about an unexpected surprise as he followed God’s leading:

 

“Our family couldn’t be more excited to be on this journey. We know that God has amazing plans for us—much greater plans than we could ever have.  Now we can’t imagine not having twins! This season has, and will continue, to teach Tiffany and I, along with our kids, about having faith in our sovereign God.”

Wednesday Cincinnati Bengals Chaplain LaMorris Crawford shared about the need to Bind the Strong Man:

Thursday Cincinnati Reds pitcher JJ Hoover shared how his perspective of the game he loves changed once he gave his life to Christ:

 

“Baseball is a unique platform because we have fans from all over that come to watch the games. If I can live out my Christian life through baseball, allowing others to see Christ in me, then I’m able to use this platform for God’s glory.”

Friday New York Jets Matt Forte shared how he has experienced the impact of a great role model in his life and wants to now use his platform to influence others for Christ:

“Many within the NFL are seeing God at work in their lives and speaking out about it.  I see it happening in the quiet prayer circles after the games, in the locker rooms, and during post-game interviews. More and more athletes are acting as advocates for Christ.”
