Tim Tebow is well-known for his charitable work. The quarterback, 27, says that his commitment to charity comes from his father, Bob, who serves as a missionary in the Philippines.

In an Father’s Day exclusive essay to PEOPLE, Tebow writes about his dad’s influence on his life and career.

When I was growing up in the Philippines, my father started an orphanage. He had heard about a baby who was being thrown away, and he just wasn’t going to sit there and let that happen.

That was the type of lesson I learned from my dad: to stand up for the poor and the vulnerable, the widows and the orphans. Not because it was easy, but because it was right. My Dad has three priorities in life, Jesus, his family and helping others. Throughout my life, he has been a role model in courage, and in doing the right thing no matter what other people say.

    Interesting thoughts on dyslexia, the NFL and Tebow from Brandi.

    I do supsect there’s something different about Tebow’s mental process late in the game when necessary steps to win have become settled and known. It just seems like there’s a qualitative difference between the 4th quarter and the 1st.

      Sage: I agree – It does appear that Brandi – has found and discerned something of possibly great significance in her article “How Stupid Are People About Tim Tebow?” via this link you have just shared..

      Thanks. 🙂

      The more I look into dyslexia the more it keeps coming up that dyslexic people think visually & spacially. It just makes sense that when Tim isn’t thinking about anything but making a Play the Game…as they say…slows down for him and he makes it happen. When he’s forced to think in terms of steps, progressions, etc. it fights the way his brain processes what he sees.
