FAITH. FAMILY. SPORTS. LIFE.
As a family of Christian athletes, we face many challenges on and off the field. A devastating injury to our oldest daughter, Kennedi, led to the creation of this ministry, and we are blessed and honored to share our journey of faith, healing, and victory with you!
Every athlete has experienced struggles and difficult encounters that often come while competing on the field.
Off the field, athletes and non-athletes alike experience marital disputes, parenting challenges, health scares, job difficulties, and financial setbacks. But we don’t have to experience defeat from any of those difficulties as we have a special gift from God!
He has given us the Holy Bible as a Spiritual Playbook full of strategies, warnings, instructions and guidance. If we are careful to read and follow our Playbook, we can face and overcome any and every challenge we face in life.
don’t give up, don’t concede, don’t yield, don’t surrender, don’t back down, don’t cave in, don’t raise the white flag, and don’t tap out of whatever it is you’re going through.
Your help has arrived – victory is on the way. Grab your Playbook and let’s go get your DUB!
What’s a DUB?
Dub is a slang word that means win or victory and is short for the letter W.
As Believers, Jesus Christ is our reigning Team Captain and MVP.
By dying on the cross to save us from our sins, Jesus guaranteed that He would never be defeated. After we accept Him in our lives, we automatically become a member of His team, and get the privilege and destiny of victory in every situation we face, but only through His lead and direction.
Playbooks are critical for a team to achieve victory. And the best players are prepared by knowing the plays in advance, so the response comes almost automatically. Whether it’s offensive or defensive moves, precautions, or specifically directed executions, we have a spiritual Playbook available to us through God’s Holy Word.
So, we have a choice: we can do things our way and experience the agony of defeat, or we use the ultimate Playbook – the Holy Bible – for all the information, direction, guidance, and strategy that will result in our victory.
We are not left to figure out this life on our own. Join Destined 4 the Dub as we study our divinely-inspired Playbook, so that we can live our best lives, and get the Dub every time!
I moved with my family from North to South Jersey in 2006 to start Crossbridge Community Church. For the first year or so, we held Bible Study in our home, allowing us to fellowship with the members, meet new people in the community, and tell them about the love of Jesus. I loved being a … Continue reading Faith-Filled Moms: Receiving God’s Help During My Cancer Fight – by Libby Barnish
When I first heard the oncologist say “Markisha, you have cancer” I went numb and escaped someplace else in my head. “We can start your treatment today.” Still not quite there, I responded, “No, Monday is better for me. I have the day off.” It was the week before the MLK holiday in 2013. His … Continue reading Faith-Filled Moms: Rediscovering God During My Cancer Fight – by Markisha Greene
I wish I could go back in time to warn my twenty-five-year-old self to get ready for the ride of her life. My autism journey started with infertility and unsuccessful IVF. I mistakenly believed it was my fault that I could no longer have children and that I was being punished for my sins and … Continue reading Faith-Filled Moms – An Autism Story by Jeanine Robbins: Finding Purpose in the Pain
