Some friends of ours at church were telling us the story of Tim Tebow today. What an incredible story - I had teary eyes just listening. I am so pleased that this young man is such a positiive role model for everyone - and especially homeschoolers.
Evidently there was a great interview with him on ESPN, so his message is far-reaching.
He is the son of missionaries - his mother had an infection while pregnant with him and their doctors recommended abortion - but his parents refused.
He was homeschooled all the way up through high school. He said that his priorities are: God, his family, academics and football. The interview said that with the passion he puts into football, he can only imagine his passion for his first three priorities.
I am going to check to see is there is a copy of the video interview on ESPN's website.
The second picture down on the left side switches. Right above it you can click on Heisman and see his speech. It was really neat. I was rooting for him since our man Sam wasn't in the running. (That is the link to the acceptance speech. I haven't seen the other one.)
