Nov 13, 2014 By Joey White 15

John David Glaude weighed 360 pounds before spending months of steady diet and exercise to drop to 200 pounds…

Obese to Beast

While almost everything about Glaude’s weight loss has been awesome, the 21-year-old is left with a very awkward problem — all the loose skin that used to contain fat he no longer has.

In an effort to deal with his insecurity and help others feel more confident in their own skin (literally), he made this fantastic video…

Nov 13, 2014 By Joey White 0

When this 1-year-old elephant wandered away from his mother and the rest of his herd near a river in Zambia, it looked like he was dead in the water as 14 hungry lions surrounded him and began to pounce.

But somehow, some way, the little guy made it…

The video cuts off before the young elephant found the herd again, but that is the end of the story, so we can all breath a collective sigh of relief.

This Team of 20 Apaches Fight the Biggest Wildfires in the Country and Love It

Nov 13, 2014 By Abraham 0

How would you like a job where 6 months out of the year you’re mostly away from home? And then, during your travels, you have to hike 16 hours a day with a 50 pound pack into a forest where a massive fire couldn’t care less if it kills you (in fact, it almost seems like it’s trying to). Sound tempting?

To the Geronimo Hotshots it does.

The Hotshots are a team of firefighters from the San Carlos Apache Tribe in Arizona who travel anywhere in the country that a wildfire needs to be controlled. Their work brings them stability, pride, and personal fulfillment. And for those in the path of the flames they fight, it brings life.

Check out this mini-documentary, complete with incredible first-person footage of the fires they’re up against…

Last weekend pastor and musician Chris Picco’s life fell apart — shockingly, and unspeakably fell apart.

Chris Picco - 02

On November 8th, his wife Ashley unexpectedly passed away in her sleep. She was pregnant. Doctors rescued the baby with an emergency C-section, but at 24 weeks and with such a traumatic birth, he struggled. On November 11th, he passed away, too.

This is almost too much to even write or read a simple paragraph about…and Chris is living it.

Here he is singing his baby to sleep…

This Lost Little Dog Finally Found His Human Again…After 8 YEARS

Nov 11, 2014 By Megan Berman 0

When Mike Nuanes’ shih tzu puppy Jordan disappeared almost 8 years ago, he never thought he’d see him again. He and his late wife had been at a neighbor’s house for breakfast, and when they returned, Jordan was gone. When he was never found, Nuanes was forced to move on and eventually adopted four more dogs.

But last week, the impossible happened: Nuanes, who lives in Colorado, got a phone call from the Fulton County Animal Shelter in Atlanta, saying that they had found a dog with Nuanes’ information in the microchip. When he looked in the yard and saw all four of his canine friends, Nuanes told her she must be mistaken…

When she asked, “Is his name Jordan?” That’s when my jaw hit the ground.
