A teenager lived alone with his father, and the two of them had a very special relationship. Even though the son was always on the bench, his father was always in the stands cheering. He never missed a game.

This young man was still the smallest of the class when he entered high school. But his father continued to encourage him but also made it very clear that he did not have to play football if he didn’t want to. But the young man loved football and decided to hang in there.

Note: Rick Warren is author of best-selling book, "Purpose Driven Life," and pastor of Saddleback Church in California. This is an incredible short interview - You will enjoy the insights that he has, with his wife having cancer and him having 'wealth' from his book sales.

I started writing as a young boy. At age 13, I was already writing poetry, short stories, and long essays. It is strange, perhaps, but I knew at that young age that I certainly wanted to be a writer when I grew up. When I started writing, I drew a lot of inspiration from nature, from the interactions I had with my friends, and the books I read also gave me a kick in the right direction, so to speak.
