The busy life of a coach leaves little time to read the Bible or spend time in community with other believers. And yet the need for spiritual input for themselves and those they lead is great. Heart of a Coach is a daily devotional that provides 120 short but meaningful readings using realistic coaching situations to help coaches understand the truth and relevancy of the Bible to everyday life. It will bring insight into handling life's daily challenges and enable the coach to use biblical principles to teach and motivate athletes. Learn from those with the heart of a coach in these readings. Also includes Scripture references and follow up questions that speak to the life of any coach.
