dyandLancaster, NYAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5ShakenNovember 2, 2016dyandLancaster, NYAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4Shaken by Tim Tebow not only discusses the tough times that have been part of his life, but how he gets through them. Everyone will have tough times - situations that make you want to just give up on a dream or times that will leave you confused as to what direction you should be taking. Shaken shares how tough it is to go through these times - especially while you are a celebrity; while your life is being looked at through a microscope by people who love to point out every fault they feel they can find. What impressed me about this book is that no matter what has happened in his life, Tim Tebow has not let it change his feelings toward God.
This book is filled with great reminders that we can apply to our lives as well, such as: "What God knows about us is more important that what others think." "Don't worry about your skills, or what you lack. Don't worry about past junk. Don't worry about what you lost. Don't worry about what lies ahead. Don't worry about what didn't happen, or what did. Be rooted in God. And watch as he unfolds a plan that has more love, more meaning, and more purpose than you could possibly imagine."
Often times when life gets tough we try to take things into our own hands instead of getting on our knees and putting things in the Hands that matter most. Throughout the book Tim Tebow reminds us of this: "But God is so much more than we could ever imagine. He has no limits. He offers us more love, more kindness, more grace, and more forgiveness than we could conceive of on our own." "We need to remember that we are His workmanship. That He has a plan and a purpose for our lives. And that He loves us unconditionally, no matter what. he accepts us despite the way we are". I could go on and on sharing some great reminders, but the best thing would be for you to read it yourself. It will touch your heart in a different way than it touched mine, but words will definitely touch your heart.
I was also impressed with the amount of time Tim Tebow has spent helping others - not only as a adult and celebrity, but he grew up in a family working in missions and his heart for others definitely shines. Some of Tim Tebow's words of wisdom to leave you with: "Every day is an opportunity to grow, to do something different, to be better. You may have failed yesterday. That's okay. It's more important to get back up. To try again. To keep at it." "God's perspective is bigger than ours. He is more knowledgeable than we are. He sees beyond today and even tomorrow." .all we have to do is let Him.
I received this book for free from Water Brook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review, but that, in no way, affects the honesty of my review.
WoofiejoAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Tebow is Unshaken!October 30, 2016WoofiejoAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Great book that gives a solid perspective of how you can maneuver through some of lifes most difficult challenges. In this book, Tebow tells the story of being cut from three different NFL teams and being prevented from fulfilling his lifelong dream of being an NFL quarterback. Certainly, a blow to the gut and ego like this could be devastating if your career is the sole purpose of your identity. Tebow shares an important lesson that in those places of doubt and even darkness, I have realized that who I am has nothing to do with wins or losses, applause or negative criticism. It has to do with whose I am.
Tebow shares the story of how his faith in Christ has grounded him through lifes difficult storms. He shares about how his circle of trust (a group of family and loved ones) provides great counsel and support to him in tough times. And, he tells about the greater purpose that he has found by looking to help and encourage others on mission trips, in hospitals with terminal illness, etc. His purpose and identity in life is defined by so much more than football (although it is an extreme passion that has driven him all life). Tebow says One day, according to the world, Im on top of my game, adored, praised, and respected. And the next, Im at the bottom of the heap, cut, criticized, and torn down. You know what Ive learned in the process? How important it is not to allow either the highs or the lows in life to determine who you are.
Tebow is wise beyond his years and has learned several important life lessons that many people may never learn. I cant wait to share this book with my son (also a football fanatic). Its jam-packed with great advice to ensure that you can stay unshaken amidst lifes storms. Thank you Tebow for sharing not only your story but your great wisdom.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group in exchange for my fair and unbiased review.
