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 >>
Conservative leader Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council has blasted the Atlantic Coast Conference for moving its championship football game to Orlando as a form of protest against North Carolina's bathroom law that bars men who identify as female from going into women's bathrooms.
"The ACC is placing the Obama political agenda above the hard working people and businesses of Charlotte. While siding with Hollywood and a handful of entertainers, the ACC is ignoring the privacy and safety concerns of parents and children," Perkins said in a statement after the ACC made its decision.
"I commend North Carolina Governor McCrory for his courage and moral clarity in not caving in to the ACC's threats to move the championship game. After weathering the storm — and picking up millions of allies — North Carolina isn't about to flinch just because sports leagues like the ACC and the NCAA are beholden to the Left's cultural bullies," he added. more >>

God alone knows the heart and only He can judge who belongs to Him and who doesn't, but there is something exceedingly strange about a fighter pulverizing his or her opponent, leaving them bloody, dazed, and broken on the floor, while giving honor to Jesus Christ who gave them the victory. How can this be?
This past Saturday night, the most feared woman in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Cristiane Justino, better known as Cris Cyborg, walked out to fight her Swedish opponent to the accompaniment of a beautiful worship song known around the world, also holding up the cross around her neck before kissing it.
When the fight began, as expected, Cyborg dominated her game opponent, punching her in the face and kneeing her in the stomach and throwing her to the ground until the other woman's face was a mess, her left eye swollen shut and blood staining her shirt and shorts. more >>

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was pleased that the team's first practice went better than he had expected. It was also the first time Kevin Durant, the team's biggest off-season catch, along with some new players on the roster, to join the Warriors in their training camp.
