    John Harrison (Alex Kendrick) is a high school basketball coach whose team is just about to win their state championship. In the last few seconds of the game, however, his son Ethan misses the shot that would have sealed the deal, and the team loses narrowly. If that isn’t bad enough, it is announced that a major steel plant in the town (and thus its largest employer) is closing, and dispersing to other areas in the country. Because of this, many of the town’s residents will have to relocate. This causes major, transformational changes for the school. The school’s principal,...
  • Inspirational story of Brian Mast, the 36-year-old military vet Harvard grad who lost his legs in Afghanistan and has now become a congressman after winning in swing state

    Last week, Brian Mast won the swing state of Florida to take the congressional seat for District 18. While an incredible achievement in itself, for Mast - a veteran and a father-of-three - it represents overcoming so much more. Life changed forever for Staff Sgt. Brian Mast in September 2010 while serving as a bomb disposal expert with the elite Joint Special Operations Command in Kandahar, Afghanistan. His team were closing in on their target when Mast spotted something suspicious among the terrain and stopped his men. He had stepped out to investigate when a roadside bomb ripped through his...

    This scene in season 3, episode 17, "Business School" of The Office (which happened to be directed by Joss Whedon) is incredibly heartwarming. Pam invited the whole office to come to her art show and no one shows except Oscar who criticizes her work, as she goes to start taking it down Michael Scott shows up and this beautiful exchange takes place. ♥ I'm sure many struggling new artists can relate to this...

    "Bravo! Well said Sir! More truer words have rarely been spoken. You inspire and embolden us to protect and defend our rights. Please do not let your voice be silenced." -- "Anonymous" reaction to "What Good Can A Handgun Do Against an Army?" 2006. Almost a decade ago now, I penned "A Letter From Hagood's Crossroads, Alabama," subtitled "What Good Can a Handgun Do Against an Army?" Over the years it has proven to be the single most popular piece I have ever written. To this day, I get emails and snail mails from folks who have stumbled across it...
  • How Dr. Walter Reed became a New Orleans hero

    04/14/2018 5:14:47 AM PDT · by BBell · 15 replies ^ | 4/14/18 | Mike Scott
    The legacy: It was an annual plague. Every summer, as warm weather set in, New Orleans braced for an outbreak of yellow fever. Those who could afford it got the heck out, fleeing to the Northshore or farther. Those who couldn't, stayed. And they prayed. Nearly every year, hundreds of them would be killed anyway by the so-called "saffron scourge" -- sometimes thousands. Then, in 1900, a team led by Army doctor Walter Reed confirmed a key discovery: It was the mosquitoes. The winged pests weren't just annoying. They were deadly, spreading the virus that caused the disease. That breakthrough...

    Bible Study Notes from Sermons | 1989 Bible Notes from sermons | R. B. Thieme, Jr.
    Definition. God the Holy Spirit so supernaturally directed the human writers of Scripture, that without waving their human intelligence, vocabulary, individuality, literary style, personality, personal feelings, or any other human factor, His complete and coherent message to mankind was recorded with perfect accuracy in the original languages of Scripture, the very words bearing the authority of divine authorship. This is called verbal plenary inspiration of the Scripture. Verbal means that the Bible in its original words, from first to last, is the exact record of the mind and will of God as He intended it to be. Plenary means...

    The International Churchill Society ^ | Nov 12, 2016 9:17 AM | Laurence Geller CBE, Chairman
    Historic Announcements from the Chairman at the 33rd International Churchill Conference Dear Members and Friends of The International Churchill Society: Writing in his memoirs, Sir Winston Churchill observed of the American people that “their national psychology is such that the bigger the Idea the more wholeheartedly and obstinately do they throw themselves into making it a success.” Nearly fifty years ago, a small group of enthusiasts came together to compare notes on postage stamps bearing Churchill’s likeness. Only a few months before he died, Sir Winston’s son Randolph gave his blessing to this newly formed organization. Thus the International Churchill...

  • "Finding Home": Poems In Search Of A Lost America

    Considering the Freedom Center’s aggressive political work, poetry may not be something one would expect to find as part of its intellectual arsenal. But as many conservative writers such as Andrew Klavan and myself have noted for years, reclaiming America means reclaiming the culture, and that means engaging in the arts. As Finch writes in his introduction, “[I]f as a people, and a nation, we can return to something lost, recovering something from our culture that has been torn, then it can only happen through art.” The art of Finding Home is Michael Finch’s deeply personal contribution to the culture...

    I know James O'Keefe wasn't involved in the recent sting videos involving Planned parenthood, but the very Tactics of this Exposing the evil on the left are shall we say "inspired" by Project Veritas. I love the fact that another group out there has learned from James O'Keefe's group and are using his previous example as an instruction manual and improving upon them. I just wanted to give some props out there to both James O'Keefe for spearheading and pathfinding this method of investigative citizen journalism and also the Center for Medical Progress for taking those lessons and expanding upon...

    Daimler debuts self-driving semi-truck Its name is “Inspiration,” and Daimler Trucks says it is the first ever self-driving semi-truck licensed to drive on public roads — in this case Nevada’s highways — not only for testing, but business, too. Daimler Trucks North America LLC debuted the self-driving big rig Tuesday night with a drive — and a driver steering — atop the Hoover Dam on the Nevada-Arizona border. Taking a line from astronaut Neil Armstrong, Dr. Wolfgang Bernhard of Daimler Trucks and Buses told the crowd bused to the site from Las Vegas for the news conference that they were...

  • British grandfather celebrates beating three types of cancer in a year with trek to South Pole

    Patrick McIntosh's wife, children and grandchildren think he's gone mad. His business clients think he's joking. And his doctors think he's lucky to be alive. Yet on Monday, despite the concerns of his family and bemusement of his colleagues, the businessman left home to trek to the South Pole – despite having been diagnosed with three unconnected cancers in less than a year. "It is perhaps a bit unusual," said Mr McIntosh, 58. "I've never done anything quite as mad as this. But I just want to get going." For the past few months, Mr McIntosh has been training hard...

  • The Most Inspiring Christian Since Helen Keller

    The Christian Diarist ^ | June 8, 2014 | JP
    I’d heard of Nick Vujicic. I’d caught a glimpse of him on Christian television. But nothing prepared me for his recent appearance at my church. A mighty man of faith, Vujicic delivered one of most powerful, spirit-filled messages I’ve ever heard. I think the Australian-born evangelist the most inspirational Christ follower since Helen Keller. Keller’s life story was immortalized in the 1962 motion picture “The Miracle Worker.” Born in 1880, Helen was 19 months old when she contracted “brain fever,” as the Keller family doctor called it. She was struck blind, deaf and mute. Nearly feral as a child, Helen’s...
  • Inspiration of the Bible

    05/14/2014 8:40:09 PM PDT · by boatbums · 79 replies ^ |
    Inspiration establishes that the Bible is a divine product. In other words, Scripture is divinely inspired in that God actively worked through the process and had his hand in the outcome of what Scripture would say. Inspired Scripture is simply written revelation. "Scripture is not only man's word, but also, and equally God's word, spoken through man's lips or written with man's pen" (J.I. Packer, The Origin of the Bible, p. 31). The term comes from Latin and English translations of the Greek word theopneustos in 2 Timothy 3:16. The KJV renders it "inspiration", while the RSV uses "inspired of...
  • Wow: Documentary Follows Mom Who Gave Birth Knowing She Would Lose Her Own Life

    Some movies have powerful plotlines. Others have intriguing characters. The documentary “40 Weeks” has both. Director Christopher Henze follows Elizabeth Joice during her pregnancy, in which she finds out her cancer had returned from years earlier and makes the remarkable decision to put her daughter Lily’s life over her own. Here’s a brief description about her incredible story of self-sacrifice: Just one month after finding out she was pregnant in June 2013, Elizabeth’s doctors found a tumor in her lung. They removed it with surgery, but because she was pregnant they could not give her the full body MRI...
  • Christian Programming Is Being Blocked From Your TV Lineup

    02/13/2014 3:57:34 PM PST · by lowbridge · 40 replies ^ | february 13, 2014 | B. Christopher Agee
    DirecTV recently announced it will drop the Inspiration Network from its lineup, leaving its stable of profane and worldly channels untouched. Incredibly, reports indicate the provider also misrepresented the development by suggesting the network initiated the split. In reality, it appears the decision was wholly that of the provider. Perhaps the most baffling aspect of the decision lies in the fact that DirecTV did not gain anything – or save any money – by dropping the network. Unlike the majority of channels carried by the company, the Inspiration Network does not charge a license fee to providers. Many failing networks cost carriers...
