Australian Rugby star Jarryd Hayne believes God called him away from his NFL dreams that brought him to the United States last year.
Although he announced his NFL retirement last May so that he could try out for the Fiji Rugby Sevens team that would allow him to participate in the upcoming Olympic games, the 28-year-old did not make the cut. In a Facebook post announcing that he would not be joining the Fiji Olympic team, Hayne revealed that he would be returning home to Australia and take some time off.
"It was hard to comprehend and understand at first why I came here? Why God put me here, but deep down I knew there was a reason and a purpose," he wrote on his Facebook page on Sunday. "God takes you places not so you can achieve what you set out for, but to play a part and help something greater than yourself." more >>

The Wilsons were married on July 6 in a ceremony that took place at the Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, England. The couple have been transparent about their journey through the lens of their Christian faith together from praying for love, to dating, a proposal and finally marriage. more >>
