Story by Gary Abernathy
What is your favorite sports team, and your best memory from that team? My favorite sports teams would have to be the Bengals, Reds and Bearcats in an equal manner. It’s tough to pick a top one out of that group. However, my favorite memory is easy. I was lucky enough to attend the Reds’ 1990 World Series with my dad. I was only 9 at the time, but I vividly remember Jose Rijo pitching and the atmosphere being amazing.
What is the best book you’ve read recently? It was a book called “Revolution in World Missions.” Missions hold a deep place in my heart, and anytime you hear stories of such sacrifice it is extremely motivating to me and reminds me how blessed we truly are.
Are you a “business Monday” or a “casual Friday” person? Depends on the week, but I would lean towards casual Friday because who honestly doesn’t enjoy casual Friday?
What do you do for exercise? I enjoy lifting weights and playing basketball. I normally do some sort of weightlifting two to three times per week, and in the past six months I have been playing basketball about once a week.
If you didn’t do what you do now for a living, what would you do instead? Such a hard question because I love so many things. If I only had to pick one, I think it would be motivational speaking, because I really enjoy trying to make a positive difference in other people’s lives. Ask me tomorrow and you may get a different answer!
