Get Active for a Great Cause!

Do you want to invest your money and time to a cause which invests in the next generation? We fell in love with Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Join us!

My husband and I recently attended an FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) banquet and were highly impressed with the dedication and passion the leaders had for America’s kids. What wowed me even more were the teens, tweens and even elementary school students who shared about their goals in life and how FCA has helped guide them to be the excellent leaders of tomorrow. There was a second grade girl who read a short story with so much power and boldness in her voice. She made it easy for us to want to partner with this organization.

Kathy Wiesen is our FCA area representative for Lake of the Ozarks. She is one of the hardest working women I know who invests every moment into equipping our teens for greatness. When I asked her why she chose to volunteer for this specific organization, she said, “I got involved when I was coaching because I knew I wasn’t coaching as strong in the Christian faith as I should have. I saw the impact on the students and myself and it was so powerful that God was clearly calling me to do this. It’s all about him.”

Ever since I was a kid, I just loved learning. I would read books in our huge apple tree in the front lawn of our 300 acre farm. I would get done doing the farm chores, grab a book and head midway up that tree to gain more knowledge and understanding about the world. The only thing was, the more I learned, the more I yearned to venture off that farm and travel around the globe. I wanted to experience all that I had read about in person. And that…I did.

Besides reading, one major way that helps me hone my craft is by attending national conferences. At least once a year, I register for a convention that equips me do what I do better, whether it would be mothering or mentoring. The more I learn, the better I can be to reach others with the message and mission God has placed on my heart.
