So, our time in Atlanta consisted of visiting the Georgia Aquarium, and hanging out with Carlos and Heather Whittaker. The aquarium was all right...if you have been to one you have been to them all, the Whittakers lived up to the hype. Carlos and Heather were amazing, especially considering they were still trying to get set up in their new pad...

Giant Testimony!

Whether you were going for the Giants or the Patriots in the Super Bowl, or even if you don't care about the SuperBowl, you've got to watch this testimony of David Tyree. It's great to see a sports star getting attention for something positive, and putting Jesus first in his life...
