Ayesha Curry has been piling her proverbial plate with the business of building her own food empire from scratch. But more than focusing on cementing a name for herself in the food industry, the cookbook author and future Food Network host is planning to use her platform to serve as a witness for Jesus Christ.
The 27-year-old wife of Golden State Warriors superstar point guard Stephen Curry isn't posting scriptures every day on social media or inviting everyone along on her book tour or to church. However, she is intentional about serving as a witness for her Christian faith, which is something that both she and her two-time consecutive NBA MVP award-winning husband have made a priority.
"When Steph decided to play basketball, I had the same conversation with him that he had with me. 'Whatever you do, do it well, but do it for God,'" Curry said in an interview with The Christian Post. "I think that's what has kept us grounded. When I started my blog called 'Little Lights of Mine,' my whole goal was to do the things I wanted to do, but all while being a light for Him." more >>
A young father in Washington state who relatives say was focused on going to church, taking care of his family and living a crime free life was shot dead in his car Monday on his way to see his wife and newborn son at a local hospital.
Federal Way police told The Seattle Times they were not ruling out the possibility that the young father, Dennis Sloboda, 33, was a victim of road rage as he explained to one of his six brothers, Anton Sloboda, shortly before he was found dead. But the officer indicated there could be more to the story as well.
Police spokeswoman Cathy Schrock said they "think there is more information out there, and we are just waiting to get it." more >>
Six months after publicly addressing a second affair following an adultery scandal that cost him his marriage and ministry at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Florida last summer, Billy Graham's grandson, Tullian Tchividjian, revealed Tuesday he got so depressed about his life he actively planned to commit suicide.
In a guest post for EXPASTORS titled "The Freedom in Losing it All," Tchividjian, 44, confessed that after coming face-to-face with the truth about himself, he didn't want to live anymore and spent two hours researching the best way to take his life.
"As one of my counselors told me early on, circumstances don't create the condition of the heart. Rather, circumstances reveal the condition of the heart. And what was revealed to me about my heart in the fiery hotness of dire circumstances was scary and destructive. This disgusting truth about myself (and the desperate aloneness that I felt because of it) made me want to commit suicide," he said. more >>
Sixty-eight-year-old "Duck Dynasty" star Si Robertson says in his new book that ever since the A&E reality show became a household name in 2012, several women have asked to marry him even though he's been married to the same woman for over four decades.
Many "Duck Dynasty" fans wouldn't know just by watching the show that "Uncle Si" has been married to his wife, Christine, for over 45 years. While other members of the Robertson family have been featured on the show, Christine Robertson has chosen to stay off camera and out of the public spotlight.
In his new book, Si-Renity: How I Stay Calm and Keep the Faith, Robertson explains that many "Duck Dynasty" fans still don't realize that he's actually married because they never see his wife on the show. He wrote that as he regularly travels to many different towns and cities across the globe for speaking engagements and to meet fans, he has had a number of encounters with fans who have come up and proposed to him. more >>
