(Season 2, Episode 3)

Capt Rico Lane, USAF, shares his story of military life at the intersection of faith, family, and profession.

His “blessedtimony” (that’s a nod to his ministry, Blessedtimony) includes three primary themes. First, a big part of his story revolves around fatherhood: how our earthly fathers can often influence what we think about our Heavenly Father. Faith is a second theme in his story. You’ll hear about his two tours in Iraq and how witnessing the devotion of the Muslims in the area really caused him to question Christianity and what it means to be a follower of Christ. Then there’s family, and specifically how God used the Bible verse text messages of a grandfather to begin changing Rico’s life.

As you listen to Rico’s story, here are three questions to ponder:

  1. Think about your relationship with your earthly father. How has it shaped your interactions and beliefs about your Heavenly Father?
  2. Rico talks about how seeing the religious devotions of Muslims (specifically, Muslim fathers) shook his own faith and belief in God when he wasn’t yet a believer. What has shaken your faith, and how did you respond?
  3. How are you using your story, or “blessedtimony,” to point others to Christ?
