Playoffs.....or bust!

He did it! It's a 3-peat! For the 3rd year in a row Don and his mighty Crusaders have advanced to the playoffs. I bubble with my love for my husband. I love him! I love the passion he has for his team. He loves those boys and as his soul mate for the last 20 plus years I can tell you being a coach is his passion. I often joke I will be wheeling him out to coach as we age and that his ashes will be sprinkled on the field. What I think is most amazing is that Don always keep Christ 1st. They pray before they play and when they are done no matter if it is a win or loss. I love this public example and I think it shows those who are not Christians why we are they way we are....we give the glory to God in good times and in bad. Sometimes I do not like the comments I hear in the stands or as I walk to my car following a game. When I share this with Don he never seems to care and I finally understand that is because he is doing what he loves and is making choices based on that. He is truly happy in his career path and I can not imagine not joining Don in this amazing journey of being a Lutheran Educator and coach. I will always be his biggest fan and support unitl the day I die. We are right where God wants us to be and no matter the outcome of playoffs I know we will praise God for the opportunity. ( the coaches wife in me thinks a win would be great...please....please...please)


  1. Good luck to Coach Justice and the Crusaders in the playoffs.

  2. Woohoo! Go team! Great post Amy! You & your husband are a great example of Christ's love and of the importance of prayer. Thanks so much for sharing.

    PS i had no idea the things coaches -- and their wives -- face 'til i read a coupla Christian albeit-fiction books by Karen Kingsbury. The way you guys give of your lives for those boys is so wonderful!
