On Feb. 7 the Sochi Winter Olympics will kick off, complete with political intrigue, security concerns, and storylines about athletes going for Olympic glory but, even more so, God’s glory.
Speed skater Jilleanne Rookard says she came to faith in Christ while training for competition in 2006.

I realize now that I’m never going to stop learning.”
