    This review was written for Double Play - eBook.
    I grew up in a sports-loving family and we watched a lot of baseball towards the end of this season. Through my casual baseball watching and the more frequent baseball watching this past season, I knew who Ben Zobrist was, or at least I had heard of him. So I knew he played professional baseball, formerly for the Tampa Bay Rays and more recently for the Kansas City Royals, although this book was published before he went to Kansas City. This book gives an overview of how he and his wife, Julianna, grew up, but its main focus is their romance, faith, and how they do what they love.

    I enjoyed this book, partly because I enjoy reading about the lives of people I've heard of before, whether through sports, music, TV, movies, etc. Seeing how Ben & Julianna met and how their romance wasn't presented in a way that made their relationship seem perfect. Julianna wrote about how certain things that Ben did turned her off and it took a while from when they first met before they actually started dating. They also shared their struggles, like depression, anxiety, pride, and how Julianna actually considered leaving Ben for a period of time. When I was reading this book, I was in a place in my life where I needed encouragement and reading about their struggles gave me some hope and gave me some perspective.

    With the way this book is written, Ben & Julianna come across as real people and not just people you see on TV or hear on the radio. You can see a baseball player's romantic side and see a Christian music singer and mother's dedication to her husband and her marriage. How they have a policy of not going more than six days apart from each other in order to put their marriage first, which can be quite difficult when Ben is on the road a lot of the time for his career.
