First, a quote from an article about the Heat's Dwayne Wade and all of his endorsements, which it sounds like he's doing for the right reasons:

Wade still remembers when all this was the stuff of his fantasies.

He grew up very poor and he and his wife often worried about how they would raise their son, Zaire, when he was first born five years ago.

But now, Wade can afford almost anything he wants — and afford to dream big, too.

He wants to be a movie star, build community centers in Miami and Chicago, keep reaching out to kids, all the while being mindful that his top priority remains trying to win another title or more with the Heat.

"I'm trying to do a lot of things, because I just don't want to play basketball and retire," Wade said. "I want to touch lives."

Here's the article:

Here's an article about a public service advertisement that Colts head coach Tony Dungy, a Christian, has made for the All Pro Dad organization. It includes a link to watch the commercial: and a link to the All Pro Dad website.

Here's an article about NASCAR driver Michael Waltrip apologizing for his team cheating last week. He said that he felt especially bad when his 9-year-old daughter asked him why he cheated. Here's the article:

Lastly, an article about Wake Forest tailback Micah Andrews, which is also previewing next season. Here's a quote from him about his returning from a torn ACL early last season:

"That's what really bothered me," Andrews said, "the timing of [getting hurt]. I believe God was testing me to see if I would bend or break. In the book of Job, God takes everything away from Job and plagues his family. Job still stayed with God and still praised God. I'm definitely not going to break."

Here's the article:

Also, in case you haven't watched Facing the Giants yet, I strongly recommend it. I've watched it the last two weekends and I absolutely love it. It's great!
