I became acquainted with the I am Second movement last fall when I was facilitating a video driven Bible study by Pete Briscoe. Each week’s study would begin with an I am Second video that illustrated the topic of that day’s study. The church that Aaron is Tech Director at often uses the videos intertwined with the sermon. The movement is powerful and growing and now you can be a part of the movement.

Why should you watch?
The short videos, most are 8-15 minutes, are of real people, who have battled real issues and come out on the other side because they have chosen to put God first and Be Second. What are you struggling with? There is probably a video or two, just for you.
- Child Abuse
- Death Disabilities
- Purpose in Life
- Sex Addiction
- Substance Abuse
Look at this list, if you are honest with yourself there is at least one struggle listed that you can identify with. I am Second has videos on each of those topics.
I have watched several of the videos but I want to share one story with you. This past Friday night my husband and I went to see the Tampa Bay rays play the Toronto Blue Jays. The Jays starting pitcher was R.A. Dickey. His pitches were very difficult to hit. He threw knuckle ball after knuckle ball and it was annoying me that he wasn’t mixing up his pitch selection. I texted my friend, David who happened to be at the Phillies game and complained about Dickey’s pitches. He told me, “That’s all he throws, don’t you know his story? Look it up when you get home.” I didn’t look it up when I got home, I went to bed. Saturday I sat down at my computer to finish up this blog post and I went to the I am Second website and the first video I saw was that of R. A. Dickey! I love the way God works! I watched the video and was touched. I am sure David doesn’t know all of R.A. Dickey’s story so I immediately emailed him the link to the video. I’m praying it touches his heart.
