It’s hard to decide what Kara Lawson is most known for.

SEC fans remember her as the All-American from the University of Tennessee who led the Lady Vols to three Final Four appearances between 2000 and 2003. Followers of the WNBA know her as a key member of the 2005 league champion Sacramento Monarchs and now as the starting point guard for the Connecticut Sun. Still more recognize her as a member of the ESPN college basketball broadcasting team through which Lawson serves both as a studio analyst for the NCAA women’s tournament and a color commentator for men’s games. And fans of the Summer Olympics would most likely know her for the gold medal she won with Team USA in 2008.

With four major outlets of fame all stemming from the hardwood, the name Kara Lawson means something different to almost every basketball fan. But to a different group of spectators, Lawson has become famous for something bigger than basketball: her faith in Jesus Christ.

Today, we’re beginning a four-part video devotion series based on Lawson’s recent interview with FCA’s Sharing the Victory magazine.

1. If your life was a movie, how would you describe the ending in regards to Heaven?
2. Do you find comfort in knowing your eternity is secure through faith in Christ?
3. If not, are you certain of your eternal destiny? Do you know for sure whether or not you are going to Heaven when you die?
4. How can you be sure where you will go when you die? (If you have questions, go to www.morethanwinning.org.)
5. How can focusing on eternity with Christ help you remain calm in life’s storms?
