“God and the Family.” A family is a group of people, weather related by direct or indirect blood lines or nonrelated kin. A Clan is a group of close-knit interrelated families. A dynasty is a succession of hereditary rulers of a country. A tribe is a group of people descent from a common ancestor. Kinfolk are a group of people related by blood. Regardless of what you call family or who your family consists of, allow God to be the focal point. The strongest family is the one built around God. Psalms 103:17-But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting on those who love Him and His righteousness with their children’s children. When we keep God as the focal point of our family and raise our family with God as the center, He will continuously bless our children for generations to come. Romans 4: 20 He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God. This speaks of Abraham understanding the promise of God and instead of his wavering, he kept his faith thereby giving God the glory and because of this many great nations were birthed from Abraham. Psalms 127:3 Behold children are a heritage from the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. God has designed Himself into us from the womb. There is no greater love. Continue to let God have full reign over your life and experience His greatness working in you, through you and around you.
Jim Jensen stops by FreshStart Radio to Chat with Host Rayanne "Crash" Jensen, as he was nicknamed by Howard Cosell, played for the well-loved NFL football team, the Miami Dolphins for 12 seasons (1981-1992). Wearing #11 for the Dolphins after a successful college career as Quarterback for Boston University, Jensen transitioned from QB to Wide Receiver, Running Back, and Tight End once Dan Marino joined the team in 1983. Together, he and Marino - along with the rest of the Miami Dolphins roster of the 1980s became one of the most fabled teams in NFL history.
Rayanne will talk with Jim about choices and new beginnings, including post-professional football careers and leading a normal, quiet life out of the limelight. We'll ask him about Jim Jensen 11 Foundation and share the their mission. The same scrappiness he became known for on the field brought Jensen success off the field.
Join us for an interesting conversation with unsung hero, Jim Jensen.

Author Riz Virk thought he was learning meditation to secure financial capital for his Tech Start-Up, but got the surprise-and Journey--of a Lifetime. It's not like any other business book you've ever read!
Zen Entrepreneurship: Walking the Path of the Career Warrior follows a young entrepreneur as he starts and grows a multi-million dollar business, only to discover that real success is completely intertwined with the spiritual realm. Rizwan (Riz) Virk has truly blazed a trail in the tech world, and now is making his mark in films. Fresh out of MIT, he launched a breakthrough company out of his Boston apartment, Brainstorm Technologies, that became the first of his many internationally acclaimed enterprise software, video games, and online advertising companies. Most recently, he has become a leading advisor and angel investor in Silicon Valley, with such notable successes as the smash hit iPhone app, Tap Fish, which was downloaded more than 30 million times. He's been quoted or chronicled in the Wall St. Journal, Inc. Magazine, the Boston Globe, Tech Crunch and a host of other leading business and technology publications. As a filmmaker, he was executive producer for the international sensation THRIVE: What On Earth Will It Take? that's been seen by more than 10 million people globally. Virk demonstrates that there is no separation between one's business life and the spiritual realm--that each feeds the other--and in fact, your success DEPENDS on reconciling these two facets of your life.
