Today, LibertyFlames.com debuts a new feature for the 2008-09 women's basketball season, "Life with the Lady Flames." From now until the end of the season, Liberty's six seniors will provide a unique look inside the women's basketball program, by way of journal entries. The series begins with Moriah Frazee.

Hi, my name is Moriah Frazee and I am a senior post player at Liberty University. It's hard to believe another year has begun. It seems like it was just summer. I successfully completed my last preseason, and in some ways I will not miss it. I definitely won't miss the early 5:30 a.m. workouts every Tuesday morning for eight weeks.

I am so glad to be back out on the court this year. I missed the last six games of the season last year, and I am looking forward to our first game on November 14. I spent all summer doing rehab and strengthening my knee, so I would be ready to go when the season comes.

This whole experience has made me realize God is in control, no matter what. There are always points in everyone's lives where it seems like nothing can go right. If we trust God through these times, He will always see us through. Sometimes, when everything is going smoothly, it is easy to think that you can do anything, but God always has a way of showing us that we can't do everything without Him.

We started official practice on Oct. 17, and so far things are going pretty well. We have a lot of new faces on the team this year. It has been fun getting to know the girls, both on and off the court. I have definitely laughed a lot this year, and I know I will have many more laughs to come. It has been neat to see how God is working in everyone's lives. The new girls are learning the system and our plays fairly quickly, and we are making new improvements during each practice.

A couple of weeks ago, our team went to Scaremare. For those of you that don't know what it is, I will explain. Scaremare is a Christian version of a haunted house. Most of the people that work in Scaremare are associated with Liberty, whether it be students, faculty, etc. At the end of the haunted house, everyone in the group goes in a tent and hears the story of the Gospel. I think it is pretty neat. After we went to Scaremare, the team went over to Coach Andy Bloodworth's place for homemade hot chocolate, fresh peaches with ice cream that were absolutely amazing and other types of desert. I'm sure I will have some more stories to tell when we start making road trips.

Along with basketball, I have also spent a lot of time working on school work. I am a nursing major, so pretty much all of my time is spent on either basketball or school. This year, I have a clinical every Friday at Lynchburg General Hospital. My first six weeks, I was on the Pulmonary Unit and this current six-week rotation I am on the Progressive Coronary Unit. I have had so much fun getting to put what I learn into practice. It has been neat to minister to the patients in the hospital and to see some of their faces light up.
