Salem Boys Play With NBA Stars

It's true.  Our oldest two sons, Connor and Kellan, were mixing it up on the court with NBA pros.  Called Integrity Basketball Camp, the evangelistic sports program features a group of former NBA stars who absolutely love the Lord.

The boys loved it!  (And the little boy in me loved it too!)

The pros were so nice.  Well, they are Christ-filled, aren't they?

I'll let the pics tell the story...

This far and no farther, Connor says.

That's a looooong way up there.


Kellan joking with former Golden State Warrior star Chris Taft.

Connor showing off for the kids!

Kellan listening to Seth Franco, the first white player
for sixty years for the Harlem Globetrotters.

Seth learned tricks while he was injured and his career looked bleak.  But because of his
tricks, he landed the lead role in a basketball movie and was asked to be a Globetrotter.
Don't you just LOVE how God uses our valleys to take us to mountaintops?

Kellan with good friend, Sam, right.

"Phew.  Long three days, but worth it!"


  1. Oh, I love that your boys had this opportunity... I'm a Mom and even I would have loved it! ;) Looks like a great time was had by all.

  2. When I clicked on this I didnt expect to see an old friend. Seth Franco is an amazing man of God. I know his wife and little girl, we were in a moms group together before I moved to Texas a few months ago. They are a beautiful wonderful family and I have only heard great things about Chris taft too. I am glad your sons were blessed.

    Be blessed
