If you wondered why Kansas City Royals fans were booing New York Yankees All-Star Robinson Cano last night and also on Monday night during the Home Run Derby, it was because he seemingly lied. Most commentators, writers, etc., failed to mention that fact when they derided the Kansas City fans for booing. The booing was merciless and constant...

Jeff and Natalie Storment’s lives had seemingly been changed overnight. Jeff had just become a Christian. He was a successful businessman in North Carolina, overseeing 350 employees in the southeast, and his wife, Natalie, had a successful business, too. But they desired God in a way that seemed to trump worldly desires. They didn’t want comfort by the world’s standards. They wanted comfort by God’s standards. And that meant doing what God wanted...

Yesterday, Stanford's starting pitcher, Mark Appel, was selected 8th overall in the MLB Draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates. Stanford is currently competing in the College World Series and just advanced to the super regionals and will play Florida State. Appel is featured in our current DigiMag, read his story below: It would be easy to sympathize with Stanford’s Mark Appel if he felt pressure. He is the top pitcher on one of the nation’s best college baseball teams, and he is taking classes at one of the nation’s toughest academic institutions...

"I guarantee that no man of Tim Tebow’s stature could survive a season in New York without succumbing to the temptations of the city.” – Neal Biderman, CEO of an internet site. That statement by Neal Biderman alone would irk some people, but knowing the context would, likely, disgust everyone...

On the surface, it seems kind of crazy that people in the Christian and secular communities have all of a sudden latched themselves to Tim Tebow and Jeremy Lin as if Tebow and Lin were the first ever Christian athletes. Don’t get me wrong, I think all of the attention is great...

When we fall, we learn a lot about ourselves. When others fall, we learn even more about ourselves because of how we treat the fallen—and most of the time what we learn in that moment, and through our actions, is just as bad, or worse, than what we learned when we fell...

Seems Justin Tuck created quite a stir, in the secular and Christian community, when he bought each of his Super Bowl-winning New York Giants teammates, coaches and front office staff a memento to mark an occasion that only 45 other teams had ever experienced...

On Championship Sunday, both the AFC and NFC title games were marred by mistakes in the final moments. Baltimore Ravens kicker Billy Cundiff shanked a game-tying field goal against the New England Patriots, and San Francisco 49ers returner Kyle Williams fumbled on the punt return, giving the New York Giants a game-winning field goal. But that's life. We're human. And we mess up. How do you react when you're the one to blame for defeat? How do you respond to God when you lose? Former Indianapolis Colts and Washington Redskins punter Hunter Smith, who is featured on this year's Power To Win DVD, dropped the snap on a game-tying extra point, which ended up being the last play of his otherwise successful career. But as a Christian, he used the moment of blame, shame and defeat to lead people to the Cross. It was drizzling rain at Washington’s Fed Ex Field on Dec. 12, 2010, and seven seconds remained on the clock...

Nearly two years ago Meb Keflezighi couldn’t walk. Even moving around in his bed required help from loved ones. His predicament was the result of a fractured hip he incurred Nov. 3, 2007, at the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in New York City...
