September 2010 - Jean-Paul LaFontaine
Chosen Attribute: Teamwork
Why is this attribute important to you?
Teamwork is the essence of winning, by coming together as one big family to accomplish a goal. God wants us to put others needs before our own, to be unselfish. Teamwork provides the opportunity to put that principle into action.
What is your favorite scripture verse?
Philippians 4:13: "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me."
Just lets me know how powerful God really is. When I am really challenged in hockey, school work, or relationships, this verse pulls me through and helps me put the focus back on Jesus. I am continually learning to get my confidence from God and not from the world or myself.
What else should we know about you?
I have a younger sister, Monique, she is going into the 11th grade at SSM. She loves volleyball and also plays basketball and lacrosse. Starting in the fall of 2011, I will play at Minnesota State University in Mankato, where I was blessed to receive a hockey scholarship. My Dad, John LaFontaine was a college hockey coach and would like to coach at the college level again. My Mom and Dad led a weekly FCA Huddle for two plus years at SSM. I currently attend a youth worship group at my church, River Valley, in Faribault, MN.In addition to hockey, I enjoy golf, basketball, snow skiing and water skiing.
