We can’t say the word “winning” this year without at least a split-second image of a manic Charlie Sheen.
But true winning is finding a path of forgiveness and love. Winning is finding God’s way through pain instead of our own. Winning is finding the passion that can drive us forward to make a difference, to love out our faith and impact lives.
Alex Krutov is a winner.
Alex has found hope in the midst of hopelessness, laughter in the midst of fear, perseverance in the midst of abuse. Enduring horrors no one should ever endure. Watching friends die. Burying them in unmarked graves. Accepting the impossible forgiveness and grace of Jesus.
I am a winner.
Joe Lalonde is a winner.
Joe runs a great blog about leadership and faith, and is a fellow member of the blogger community Killer Tribes. Joe has won the drawing for Alex’s book, Infinitely More, and a Starbucks Gift Card. Thanks to everyone who entered and shared!
You are a winner.
Look at the past year, and think about your goals for next year. Find the threads of winning that weave through your life. They’re there.
Leave a comment to congratulate Joe and tell us why you are a winner.
