The Gospel of Jesus Christ is the Gospel of Liberty! ....And Champions!

The gospel of Jesus Christ is the gospel of Liberty!

I know The Book of Mormon is the word of God because I have read the book and prayed and asked God if it is true. I have received many answers to my prayers by the power of the Holy Ghost that the book is the truth. The answers have come to me most often as a thought in my mind or heart, and you will recognize that the thought or the feeling is not your own, but instead comes from God.




O evangelho de Jesus Cristo é o evangelho de Liberdade!

Eu sei que O Livro De Mormón é a palavra de Deus porque eu o li e eu orei e pedi a Deus se o livro é verdadeiro. Tenho recebido muitas respostas de Deus às minhas orações pelo poder do Espírito Santo que o livro é a verdade. As respostas para mim são geralmente um pensamento em sua mente ou coração, que você reconhece não é o seu próprio pensamento, mas em vez o pensamento ou sentimento veio de Deus.





Heavenly Father answered my prayer when I was 9 years old that I should play basketball and become the greatest basketball player ever.

Initially, when some people hear this, it is not uncommon for some to think that God did not speak to me; that it was my imagination instead.

God did answer my prayer through the still small voice of the Holy Ghost. I didn't see an angel, I didn't hear a voice, nothing dramatic happened, it was simply the still small voice. The still small voice pricks or touches your heart, it speaks to your spirit and is discerned by your heart to where you recognize the thought or the feeling is coming from God and is not your own thought or feeling.

However, along my journey to become the greatest ever it seemed everything was going against me, it seemed everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. It seemed that God was not there and was not helping me even though I knew he did answer my prayer when I was little.

Well, I never gave up, I never quit! I kept going and was absolutely determined that if I exercised faith, that God would work the miracle and I would achieve my dream.

And the miracle did happen! A real miracle! I did achieve the dream God gave me! The world will not see that I achieved my dream, but that doesn't change the truth that I am the greatest ever. Anyone who performs the greatest accomplishment is the greatest ever! This is the lesson Heavenly Father wanted me to learn. I am a Champion! Anyone who doesn't give up is a Champion!

The MOST difficult thing and also the GREATEST thing you can do in your life is to get back up when you get knocked down! And the only types of people that can perform this greatest accomplishment are Champions!

Don't let anyone tear you down and away from your dreams and from becoming a Champion!

Basketball is About Having Fun and Dancing (Doing Your Best)

If you're not having fun playing basketball, then you're doing something wrong.

Basketball is a dance. As well as everything you do in life is a dance. They are both about positive movement or doing your best.

To have fun playing basketball as well as in life, you need to keep dancing. Or in other words, you need to keep moving forward.

Even when you are tired and can barely move, just move something and God will do the rest.

God will perform the miracle when you exercise faith in him. After the test of your faith is complete, the miracle will appear.

I prayed when I was little and asked God to help me become the greatest basketball player ever.

It then seemed everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. But I never stopped moving. I was frustrated and discouraged at times, but I didn't stay frustrated or discouraged. I kept coming back, I kept moving forward, I kept dancing.

My prayers were answered and I did become the greatest basketball player ever and I know it is because God helped me. God helped me overcome all obstacles. I know this is true.

I wrote about how God helped me and answered my prayers in my book, "Champions Never Quit: God Is Close By Your Side".

Remember, it doesn't matter if the world can or cannot see the truth of who you are or not because the world doesn't determine if something is true or not. If the world doesn't see who you are or doesn't see the miracle, it doesn't change the truth of who you really are.

After all that I've been through, such as three major knee surgeries and being informed that I have the worst knees my orthopedic surgeon ever saw in his career up to that point, the fact that I can even play basketball is a miracle. And the fact that I can dunk a basketball is a miracle. Not imaginary miracles, but real divine miracles. Triumphing with the help of God is fun.

The world might not see or recognize that I am the greatest basketball player ever but the world doesn't determine what is true or what is not true.

Anyone, and that includes you, who gets back up when they get knocked down is the greatest ever! Because the most difficult thing you can do in your life and the greatest thing you can do in your life is to get back up after the fall. Don't quit!

And don't compare yourself to the worldly achievements of others to determine what your greatness is. If you keep dancing, you are the greatest ever whether the world sees you or not. God knows who you are and you are a Champion.

The best is yet to come!

Why I Wrote the Book, "Champions Never Quit: God Is Close By Your Side"



Each of us has a testimony, each of us has a story, each of us has experiences where we learned something that is true.

I felt extremely inspired to share my testimony in book form, of how I learned the most difficult thing you can do and also the greatest thing you can do in your life is to get back up when you fall or get knocked down or get hit hard or have the evils of the world come down on you. The most difficult and greatest thing you can ever do is to not give up.

I wrote 30 pages back in 2006 and then didn't do much after that. Later during Christmas time of 2012 I felt more inspired than ever to write my testimony into book form. I felt a huge sense of urgency. I knew the only way I would be able to write this book is if I prayed and asked God to help me. So I prayed everyday for help in writing it and made a goal to write something everyday, whether it be a few pages or just a few words, but to write something each day. It is a true miracle I was able to write this book, "Champions Never Quit: God Is Close By Your Side", and I know that God helped me and he will help you too.

My testimony or my story is not any greater or any better than anybody else. It is not a competition. Your testimony or your story is just as great or just as important. 

The reason I am so enthusiastic in the importance of sharing our testimonies is because before we were born on earth, there was a war in heaven. This war was a war of testimonies between God and Lucifer, between good and evil, between liberty and slavery, between free agency and tyranny. Every person on the earth today shared their testimony of the truth and chose the right side in the war in heaven but the war is not yet over, it is continuing here on earth. Lucifer who became Satan is so determined to get revenge that he is throwing everything he has at us. The way that we are going to triumph over the cunning and brilliant dark plans of Satan is by simply sharing our testimonies of the truth in words and actions. There are others who are depending on us, who we promised we would fight for liberty and with the help of God, we must fulfill the promises we made and not let anyone down who we promised to help.

Some of the testimonies I wrote about in the book of those who shared theirs with me and helped me in my life to learn the truth that 'champions never quit' include: my parents and my brother and sister (The McGaffin 5ive), Pete Cummings, Michael Jackson, John Stockton, Karl Malone, George Lucas, my friends, and many others.

You are so important in this war. Every time you feel inspired to open your mouth, -do it! Every time you feel inspired to share your story, your experiences, your talents, your testimony, -do it!

No matter how hard things might get, remember that Champions Never Quit! Just hold on a little longer. God is working a great miracle and a great victory through you. The world will not see it, but God sees it and God sees you so don't listen to the lies of the world because God knows who you really are and will help you to forever triumph in the end. Do your best and God will do the rest and you will live forever as a true champion!

You don't have to write a book, just do what you feel inspired to do and God will take your genuine and sincere effort and work a great triumph! Miracles are happening behind the scenes that we don't even know about, that we can't see and one day they will all be revealed.

The greatest type of person you can become is a champion! This time we each have on earth is the time where we each prove ourselves to choose and become a champion! This Is It! 

 And remember to have fun as you share your testimony!
