Tim Tebow Super Bowl ad


I'm not a huge Florida Gaters fan... but any stretch of the imagination (especially since they pounded my beloved Buckeyes a couple of years ago in the National Championship game).

I have been impressed, however, with the faith and witness of Tim Tebow, Univ of Florida's quarterback and Heisman trophy winner (2007).

So I was pleased to catch the rumor that Tim Tebow and his mom Pam are going to be featured in a Super Bowl ad on Feb 7 for pro-life. Pam was encouraged to abort Tim during pregnancy fearing that he would be born with defects. Pam and her husband were missionaries in the Philippines and instead chose to keep Tim and had a healthy baby.

This morning I caught the full story (HERE) about the upcoming ad. It's great that it won't just be a special little thing hidden somewhere among the Super Bowl hype but will instead be a full commercial running during the Super Bowl.

Here's a small snippet: "Tim and Pam share our (Focus on the Family) respect for life and our passion for helping families thrive," Jim Daly, president and CEO of Focus on the Family, based in Colorado Springs, Colo., said in a statement. "They live what we see every day - that the desire for family closeness is written on the hearts of every generation."

(Read the rest HERE.)

It will be great that, when in the midst of a country tainted by Roe v. Wade and on demand baby killing, an estimated 90-100 million viewers will see a pro-life message. Hopefully it won't get lost and will become a topic for watercooler conversation on Monday morning.
