    REVISITED: Matt and Sarah Hasselbeck

    REVISITED: Matt and Sarah Hasselbeck

    With Matt and Leslee taking a brief pause on recording new episodes, we'll be revisiting some previous episodes. The NFL playoffs are in the full swing, so this week we're sticking with football as the conversation and revisiting a chat from 2020 with Matt and Sarah Hasselbeck. Matt was a three-time Pro Bowl quarterback and was inducted into the Seattle Seahawks Ring of Honor. In his post-playing career, he's appeared on ESPN as an analyst alongside his brother a fellow NFL veteran Tim Hasselbeck.

    He and Sarah met while at Boston College, where Matt played football and Sarah was a star field hockey player. In this clip, Matt and Sarah talk about life in the NFL and people who mentored them, both on the field and off the field in their faith.

    REVISITED: Ben Roethlisberger

    With Matt and Leslee taking a brief pause on recording new episodes, we'll be revisiting some previous episodes.

The veteran and future Hall of Famer has hinted that this could be his last season.

    Roethlisberger appeared on "Table Forty" in 2020 where he talked about growing up and playing high school and college football in Ohio, why he chose Miami University of Ohio over Ohio State, and how his faith has grown on and off the field from those teenage years to now in his 18th season in Pittsburgh.

Podcast with Brian & Diana Roberts

I just found you today and my first podcast I listened to was with one of my old Sunday School students, Brian Roberts. I had lost track of him and his family so I was thrilled to once again connect with him through your podcast. I was truly blessed to hear how Brian and his wife are living for the Lord. I can only hope that the way my husband and I lived our life before him in and out of the Church helped play a a small role in where he is in his walk with the Lord today. If you see him please tell him that I am so sorry to hear his mom passed. She and his dad were wonderful people. Thanks for the podcast.🌺

Good job Matt and Leslee!

I like this pod a lot! I like hearing the athletes life stories, because that’s the side we don’t get to hear about them. I especially liked the Matt Carpenter episode.
