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 remember when I wrote this…getting out of bed was difficult. I just wanted to sleep so I wouldn’t have to think, wouldn’t have to remember, wouldn’t have to deal with life. I was living with a crushed spirit. Last week I talked about a spirit of heaviness and sadness that I was experiencing after … Continue reading When Life Gets Too Heavy
