On dealing with injuries: “When things like injuries happen, you realize how little control you really have. The more you fight for control, the more frustrated you get. You need to accept what God is doing in your life. You may have questions, but don’t let them consume your thoughts. You have to enjoy the blessings of every day.”
On establishing good habits: “The more often you make the right decisions, the easier it gets. Not to say I’ve never made mistakes, but when I do I’m thankful for a forgiving God who is there for me.”
