Joseph’s Way-The Call to Fatherly Greatness

For the past several weeks I have been reading the book Joseph’s Way-The Call to Fatherly Greatness ‘Prayer of Faith’ by Devin Schadt  The book is set up to be read in a daily devotional style, just a few pages a day. Let me share a quote from the book today with you:

“Keep in mind that these reflections on humility and fortitude are for the purpose of preparing you to build the domestic church, a home wherein you, as the spiritual leader of your family, will lead your family to union with God. Your family’s holiness should continually be your primary focus and chief proximate end, second only to your own personal holiness and pursuit of God.

Within you also, my dear brother, exists a terrible battle between your fears and the longing for conquest, especially the conquest of your disordered self. If you desire to become a true man, aspire to the challenge of conquering something apparently greater than yourself: your fears, your doubts and your past. Beware, my brother, for fear, if not properly transformed into trust, will become a power greater than yourself, evolving into an alter ego which will subdue your interior being, crushing your desire to become a valiant, holy defender of the domestic church and instead deforming you into a coward who knows not the grace and power of the resurrected Christ.”

10 Reasons to Join the Track Team

Found this great article  10 Reasons to Join the Track Team. Next is a quote from the article:

Every year, I attempt to recruit our best football players to the sport of track & field.  Track does not sell itself.  This article will focus on how I recruit athletes to the Plainfield North track program.  Some of the things we do will not be universal.  Hopefully this article gives track coaches some tools to promote your sport.  Hopefully this article will help athletes and their parents to develop a balanced approach to athletic participation.  The only adults promoting specialization are jackasses who benefit from specialization.  All true educators promote balance.
