Kara Lawson Video Study – Part III
“I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.”
-Galatians 2:20 (NIV)
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 continuing our four-part video devotion series based on Lawson’s recent interview with FCA’s Sharing the Victory magazine.

1. What roles do you play in life? (i.e. coach, athlete, parent, son, daughter, friend, teammate, etc.)
2. If someone were to ask you who you are, what would you tell them?
3. What does it mean to find your identity in Christ?
4. If your identity lies first in your role as a child of God, how does that affect how you live your life? How does it affect how you compete?
