Nine years after suffering irreversible brain damage in a tragic car accident, Ian Murphy is not physically the same man that his college sweetheart, Larissa, fell in love with.
Despite the odds, the devoutly Christian couple chose true love over comfort, with them recently celebrating their fifth wedding anniversary. They will share their powerful testimony of love, heartbreak and the power of faith on Oprah Winfrey's new "Belief" series. But before the airing of the show, the couple shared their story with The Christian Post.
Ian and Larissa were just like any other ordinary college students upon meeting in the spring of 2005 — young, full of life and intent on achieving their "happily ever after." But less than a year into dating, tragedy struck and a near-fatal car accident would leave Ian paralyzed and suffering from a traumatic brain injury. more >>

Such is the following submission of a new take on Little Red Riding Hood.
Once upon a time there was a dear little girl who loved her grandmother supremely. The grandmother had given to her a little cap of red velvet, which suited her so well she would never wear anything else. Thus, everyone called her Little Red Riding Hood. more >>

Years after Tim Tebow professed that he was a virgin, the Christian football star and television personality is being questioned about his thoughts concerning Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson's public vow of celibacy with his singer girlfriend Ciara Harris.
Tebow was stopped by a TMZ reporter at an airport recently, where he was questioned about advice he would give to the high-profile entertainers who are working to remain celibate.
"You're an advocate for saving yourself until marriage. I wanted to know if you have any advice for Russell Wilson?" a reporter asked Tebow in a video posted to TMZ on Monday.

Any advice for how they can push through all of the criticism, the haters and stuff?" more >>
