January #IWSG: The Underdog

                                           First Wed of Every Month

Remember, the question is optional!!! 

You ready?
Let’s rock the neurotic writing world!
January 5 question - What's the one thing about your writing career you regret the most? Were you able to overcome it?

The awesome co-hosts for the January 5 posting of the IWSG are Erika Beebe, Olga Godim, Sandra Cox, Sarah Foster, and Chemist Ken!      

I had the pleasure of watching American Underdog this past weekendWhat an amazing true story of Kurt Warner and his football career. Everybody feels that life is against them at some point. However, if you don't get over unfortunate events, you will never move on. 

One of Kurt Warner's teammates on the winning Super Bowl team the St. Louis Rams is a good friend of our family. His son and my son are best friends and wrestled on the same wrestling team coached by my husband. Small world! These people are real and give God the glory for everything in their lives, the good and the bad.

 I encourage you to see the film. It's not a typical Hollywood agenda-filled two hours. What a great inspirational story that will not leave you disappointed!

Will you be an overcomer this new year? How will your begin in 2022? Will you let disappointment defeat you? Spoiler alert: God wins in the end! 


  1. Thanks for suggesting an inspiring movie for us to watch. We all need stories filled with hope and inspiration these days.

  2. That's amazing you have that connection. I do really want to see it. Warner always gave credit to God.

  3. Hi Jennifer, this year I hope to able to conquer disappointments in a better way, without letting them affect either my mood or my writing.

  4. Glad you found inspiration in the story!

  5. The movie sounds good - I'll check it out. There are so few uplifting movies to choose from these days.

    Disappointment may knock me down, but it never defeats me!

  6. I'll have to check that movie out.

  7. It's not easy to not let disappointments keep you down.
    I'll have to check out that movie.

  8. I will definitely be an overcomer this year! I hope we all are.

  9. That's a great lesson. I'll have to watch the movie.

  10. I'm originally from the St. Louis area, so I think I'd enjoy watching the movie. I certainly enjoyed watching that Superbowl.

    Happy 2022!
