Sacramento Adventist Academy Graduate wins Gold at the Olympics


Sacramento Adventist Academy graduate Mary Whipple won Gold with her team last Sunday at the 2008 Summer Olympic Games. Mary is the coxswain on the women's eight rowing team for the United States. The coxswain is the person who sits in the back of the boat, facing the rowers. As coxswain, Mary steers the boat, coordinates the tempo and energy of the rowers, and motivates the team all at the same time. [More...]

Have you noticed that the people rowing seem to be sitting backwards? If something were to block the path, the rowers wouldn't know about it unless the coxswain tells them. Good thing there's a Coxswain* in life Who'll always guide you in the right direction if you'll let Him!

*PS It's Jesus! :-D
