Philip Rivers, quarterback for the Los Angeles Chargers, has always lived a very Catholic oriented life. Rivers and his wife Tiffany have been together since high school. The couple have talked about their devout faith and how their religion has helped them build a family. Rivers has discussed the importance of faith in a number of interviews. When Rivers spoke with the blog “Living the Faith on a High Wire” he said, “No matter what the outcome of the game, you come home and you’re still dad to your kids. And that’s where it really settles in, that, as important and as much time as you put into football, they (family) think you did great no matter what.”
Rivers went on to say, “That balance of the family at home, with our faith; teaching the kids the faith, having family prayer, going to Mass together and then football… That’s our role as dads. It is raising our kids in the faith. We always say a blessing at supper, the family rosary, the Divine Mercy Chaplet; things they can see and touch, that has long lasting impact on them and they can carry it into their families one day.” Rivers teaches other Christians that life is not about the fame and glamour – in fact, at the end of the day the only things that really matter are faith and family.
