Chosen Attribute: Accountability
Why is this attribute important to you?
Accountability. You always have a choice in life and it is easy to fool people that you are doing the right thing in all aspects of life, but at the end of the day, two people know the truth, you and the Lord.
What is your favorite scripture verse?
“Jesus looked at them and said ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.’”
I really like this verse because it was one of the verses that a teammate of mine would always quote to me before the national anthem before every game. I went through some tough times on and off the ice in junior hockey and struggled with my faith. When I got to college this reminded me that if I put my total trust in the Lord that He would take care of me and I could achieve things on and off the ice that I could not do alone. I have always been a “do it yourself” independent person, but somewhere along the way I needed to be reminded that no matter what happens at the rink or at home the Lord is always there and living each day according to His Word is the greatest victory I can achieve. The rest is in his hands.
What else should we know about you?
I am a sophomore goalie who plays college hockey for the Colorado College Tigers. Before college, I played junior hockey for the Waterloo Black Hawks of the USHL. My family is one of the most important things in my life. I have a brother who was in the United States Marine Corps and I am beyond proud of him for serving our country and being willing to make the ultimate sacrifice. I also have two sisters whom I love very much along with my parents whom I am very close with. Along with hockey I enjoy fishing, hunting, golf and being on the lake. My goals for the future are to play in the NHL and to continue to grow in my faith and spread it to my teammates.
