Look to the Ultimate Leader

Description

Shanna Zolman, from the Tennessee Volunteers, explains how she discovered that Jesus is the one who gives meaning and purpose to everything.

I was raised in the great basketball state of Indiana and I began dribbling a basketball not long after I learned to walk.

Then, at the age of seven, I made the decision to become a Christian. A couple years ago something very interesting happened to me. I was going through a major slump in my game. The first half of my junior season at the University of Tennessee was the worst I have ever had as an athlete. I placed the blame on many different things, but the slump remained. God really got my attention, and I realized that I had been trying to find significance and fulfillment in my success as a basketball player instead of finding it in my relationship with Jesus Christ.

When I got my priorities back in order and looked to Him as the ultimate Leader for my life, I began to enjoy basketball again. My life and my game are far from perfect, but I realize that Jesus is the One who gives meaning and purpose to it all.

Since then, I am also continuing my basketball career in the WNBA with the San Antonio Silver Stars.
