#143: How to Overcome Obstacles in Life with Faith

overcoming obstacles

Scars. We all have them, whether they are the time we fell off our bike when we were young or the emotional ones we carry with us as an adult. Every scar has a story! On today’s show, we will hear from former NFL player Devon Still, and how his life has been a journey from one scar to the next.

We will discuss his story of pushing through pain and overcoming obstacles of all shapes and sizes – of choosing to fight for the sake of his family, his community and his faith.

Devon is a professional athlete, entrepreneur, speaker, and advocate for childhood cancer awareness. Perhaps most importantly, Devon is Leah’s dad, helping her publicly “beat up cancer” and embarking on a pediatric cancer-fighting journey.

We will be discussing it all, including his new book – Still in The Game.
