I was raised in a religious environment, and my wife is one of the more religious people that I have ever known.
Sacrifice, discipline and prayer are essential. We gain strength through God's word. We receive grace from the sacrament. And when we fumble due to sin - and it's gonna happen - confession puts us back on the field.
No matter what happens on the field, getting an education makes you a winner.
One thing about me is I try to be honest.
It is a fine thing to have ability, but the ability to discover ability in others is the true test.
I believe that having a spiritual life is so important in everybody's life.
