Having an Impact

November 3rd, 2015 | Uncategorized

The one thing that stood out more than anything about the Sport Changes Life Foundation was the foundation’s goal of giving back to the Ireland community.  I know the importance of giving back and the impact that it can have on the lives of young people.  I am here in Ireland today because of all the people who have helped me along the way.  I now have the opportunity to give back some of the things that I have been blessed with. 


My blogs have been reaching and encouraging people in ways that I never would have thought.  I have received so many messages from people saying how they have been following my blog post every Wednesday and I am truly thankful that I have been able to use my blogs as a way to have a positive impact.  Just recently I found out that my church family in Washington DC will be reading my blogs during the weekly bible study session.  Knowing that I have people reading and being impacted by my blogs keeps me encouraged.  The Sports Changes Life Foundation created a way for me to give back what was given to me through sport as well as life.


The more we give the more we are able to receive.  We cannot be blessed with more if our hands are full holding onto the things that have already been given to us.  We gain God’s trust by giving back what we have been blessed with.  If we cannot be trusted to give back in the areas that we have already been blessed we cannot expect to be given more.  This week lets focus on giving something back that we have received.  It can be money, time, encouragement, words of wisdom, or empathy. “To God Be The Glory”
