Gain insight into handling daily challenges and use biblical principles to become a true competitor for Christ.
As a competitor with a passion for sports, an athlete or coach views all of life through a sports lens. Whether you are an athlete, coach, or sports enthusiast, your competitive drive for success and commitment to your sport may lead to being set apart from others, distancing yourself from friends, family, and church.
God wants to be the center not only of your athletics but every other area of your life. Heart of a Competitor is a powerful game plan, providing regular spiritual training that won't take over your workout schedule. Included in this book are 90 inspiring devotions written by competitors for competitors at every level.
Now you can gain insight into handling daily challenges and use biblical principles to become a true competitor for Christ. Whether you are putting on a jersey and stepping onto the field of competition, or you are simply trying to get fit, you will be prepared to worship as you compete and give God glory.
