I ONCE WAS

Stories of transformation from the lives of pro athletes

***

As Tommy Edman entered pro baseball out of Stanford, he was living with “one eye set on the world and one eye set on God.” He wasn’t fulfilled. When he was drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals, however, he saw men of God living with integrity on and off the field. As he watched and talked with them, Tommy was able to learn how he too could turn away from the world and set both eyes on God.

Watch the video above to hear Tommy Edman tell his “I Once Was” story.

We’re all in the middle of a story, and whether we admit it or not, we want our stories to matter. It’s those stories of deep and lasting impact that come to life when a person encounters Jesus, and responds to Him by faith. “I Once Was” invites professional athletes to share their own transformational stories, describing the very moment that changed their lives forever.
