4 things to remember for those days when we need a lift

Holy BibleBy Lynn R. Mitchell

For those days when we need a lift….

1. Remember that your Character should always be stronger than your Circumstances.

Choose to keep a positive attitude and thankful heart regardless of what you’re going through.

Tim Tebow hosts ‘Night to Shine’ Valentine proms tonight for special needs students

Tim TebowBy Lynn R. Mitchell

“Night to Shine.” Worldwide. 15,000 volunteers. Countless smiles. Overflowing love. Tonight.

Valentine 2This Valentine’s Day he will once again help others with “Night to Shine” proms (see Tim Tebow’s Valentine’s game plan: Special needs proms throughout nation):

On Feb. 13, a parade of special guests, each with an entourage and some requiring special accommodations, will appear at the non-denominational church for a night Fasano vows they will never forget. The church is one of dozens across the country taking part in “Night to Shine,” a prom-style evening of dining and dancing for special needs teenagers organized by the foundation of former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow. The same scenario is playing out at 49 other churches in 26 states as well as Amazing Grace International Ministries, in Nairobi, Kenya, and Ekisa Ministries, in Jinja, Uganda.

Tebow, 27, a devout Christian who quarterbacked the Florida Gators to two national championships and won the Heisman Trophy before a brief NFL career, said the special night will honor teens who struggle with a variety of disabilities.
