Publisher's Description

Do not let the title Kelly Tough fool you. This is not a "be all you can be, no pain–no gain" story. Toughness is overrated. And being Kelly Tough, well, you are about to find out what that really means and why it just might matter to you.

Kelly Tough is a story of love and hope: a love between a father and a daughter—Buffalo Bill’s former quarterback, Jim Kelly, and his oldest daughter Erin. Erin shares a deeply personal account of the love a family can have for each other during the darkest times, and a greater love that a heavenly Father has for you.

Whatever circumstance or heartbreak you find yourself overwhelmed by right now, it is not the end of the story. In fact, it just might be one of the greatest chapters as you, like the Kelly's, find strength in weakness, hope in the midst of heartache, and joy in spite of suffering.

Editorial Reviews

When you play in the NFL, you're part of a bigger family. That's what Jim Kelly and his children are: family! I'm thankful to have had the opportunity to see first hand the relationship that Jim and Erin have. This book is about that and so much more. Reading this will encourage you and hopefully as a result will strengthen the relationships you have with the people you love most.

DAN MARINO, NFL Hall of Fame, Special Advisor to CEO and President of Miami Dolphins


I have known the Kelly Family for many years and have witnessed what it looks like to be "Kelly Tough" on and off the football field. However, what I have learned through watching Jim and his daughter Erin during Jim's cancer fight far eclipses the best of the best. This book is an account of what it takes to live with courage in the midst of some of life's most difficult circumstances. Well done Erin! Your NFL family is proud of you.

BILL POLIAN, 2015 NFL Hall of Fame Enshrinee and ESPN NFL Analyst


The expression Kelly Tough has become like a brand unto itself.  And no one epitomizes that more than 19 year old Erin Kelly, the first born child of Jim and Jill Kelly. Beautiful like her mother and feisty like her father, Erin writes eloquently and intimately about faith, family and football, a cliché expression for so many but one that she embraces with all the gusto of a Jim Kelly fist pump.  I’ve always believed that if you want to truly learn about people look at how their kids turn out.  Erin Kelly is a Hall of Fame daughter and sister and her stories and insights will touch and inspire you.

ANDREA KREMER, multi award winning journalist 


We have watched Erin Kelly grow from a beautiful, caring young girl to a soldier. This young woman became a soldier while wearing her "Kelly Tough" armor. She fought bravely when her father was weak and in great pain while battling cancer. Wouldn't we all be so blessed to have a daughter who would abandon the frivolity and innocence of youth to crawl through the trenches, to go all-in and battle for us. Erin did this while simultaneously keeping the faith—not only keeping it, but growing in it. How beautiful is that? Kelly Tough is a read for everyone, everywhere, and at anytime. You will turn over the last page of this book feeling deeply inspired and armed to battle for the people you love most.

—NFL Hall of Famer THURMAN THOMAS & PATTI THOMAS


Kelly Tough is a beautiful, true, imperfect love story. It's a study in toughness made of more than sheer grit, but the inner kind that turns regular people into warriors. With raw honesty, the Kellys have taken their trademark family strength and turned it into a paperback jewel of hard-earned wisdom for the reader. I've cheered and cried and learned with every page. This book will move people. It has moved me.

—LISA WHITTLE, speaker, author of {w}hole and I Want God

    Kelly Tough became the phrase that identified the toughest quarterback in the NFL, Jim Kelly. Erin now uses it to describe their journey through her dad's cancer diagnosis, treatment and recovery.

    Her dad taught Erin to be Kelly Tough. Erin evidences a spiritual maturity beyond what I would have expected at her age. She admits she doesn't have all the answers as she hasn't lived long enough yet, hasn't had enough life experiences. Yet she shows wisdom and faith that is an encouragement to any young person.

    She tells how her younger brother died in 2005, at the age of eight and a half, of a rare genetic disease. She writes of her father's cancer and then its recurrence and all she has learned when under fire.

    She went through a time of questioning God yet came through the ordeal knowing the reason for her hope. She draws a wonderful parallel of the love between her and her father and the love we share with our Father. She has learned that God is so gracious that He redeems mistakes.

    In the end, she has learned to rejoice in whatever God brings along the path. Here is a little of her wisdom: And sometimes the victory isn't in the winning or losing, but in the willingness to join the fight, regardless of the odds, or the fear because it's the right thing to do. (27) Here is another: Being Kelly Tough means you always do more than what's expected of you. (36)

    This is a great book for young people, especially if they are going through a tough time. Erin provides great encouragement by example for persevering through the grace of God and by His strength. She helps us know that we too can make it through the ups and downs of life's greatest struggles. It is encouraging to see such wisdom and maturity in a young person.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book through Icon Media for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
