Life Simplified

Allen Webster is one of my favorite people. Allen is the FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) East San Gabriel Area Director. Allen and his wonderful wife Janelle have two boys and they live in Upland, CA. Allen and Janelle are also the social media experts for HomeWord. I loved this simple yet profound message. I hope it speaks to you like it did to me.

“The problem is not the problem. The problem is your attitude about the problem.”
– Jack Sparrow

Life simplified…


There are two things you can control, yes only TWO:

1. Your effort.

2. Your attitude.

Your preparation, planning and execution.
Then, how you handle it all as it unfolds.

We must then train not just our bodies, but our minds to succeed.

We may take hits, we may even fall…
Our family has had our fair share.

But in the moments of pain, the times we choose to climb back to our feet,
we find who we really are.

Train well my friends.

Mindset matters.

Help us reach the next generation of families

Previously, Allen worked for another para-church ministry, was a College and Young Adult Pastor and has led and served in a myriad of capacities within ministry over the last twenty years, including as an Area Director for both Young Life and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He loves being able to disciple and mentor both coaches and students, and he has a huge heart for teaching God’s word in relevant ways.
