Favorite Verse: "Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary; they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31 NIV

Life sure is challenging at times. We often think we have all the answers,but many times we are only fooling ourselves.


I grew up going to church and had a great Christian influence in my home. It wasn't until 1993, just prior to starting my professional baseball career that I understood being a Christian was more than going to church and coming from a Christian family. Being a Christian meant that I understood there was nothing I could do to earn God's favor and a place in heaven; it means I need to trust in what Jesus Christ did for me on the cross. Jesus died for my sins and rose again so that I could have eternal life.

That decision of putting my faith in Christ has given me the assurance of spending eternity in heaven with Jesus. It has also given me confidence in knowing that God provides me with guidance in every circumstance if I will call on him in prayer, just talking with him like you talk with a friend.

Over the past few years, I've also been able to grow by reading God's Word - the Bible. Life isn't perfect. I don't always drive in the winning run, but I have a greater purpose in life - to bring Glory to God, and live with the assurance that I will spend eternity with Jesus in Heaven.
