Sneak Peek: Shaken by Tim Tebow7:00 PM
A few month's ago, I got an email asking if I'd like to apply for a position on Tim Tebow's book launch team. Beyond excited, I immediately began filling out the application. I was so determined that I actually postponed a meal, just to finish the application. And if you know me, that is not something I would normally do. I mean, I LOVE food!
Anyways! After patiently waiting for an email, I finally got the notification! I took a deep breath, opened the email, and read:
"Congrats! You've been approved to be a part of Tim Tebow's book launch team!"
Honestly, I couldn't believe it! I've only recently begun blogging again and I definitely didn't think I qualified, but I'm so glad that I did! Not only that, but I also knew that this experience would help me later in life. You know, when it's time to launch my own book :)
Well, after what seems like forever, I have finally received the book and I can't wait to read it! That doesn't mean that you have to miss out on all of the early reading though! In fact, I'm about to share a sneak peak with you!
Who are you when life is steady?
Who are you when storms come?
Most of us have been on the receiving end of rejection, a broken dream, or heartbreak. And while this is not an easy space to go through, when we are grounded in the truth, we can endure the tough times.
In this powerful book, Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow passionately shares glimpses of his journey staying grounded in the face of disappointment, criticism, and intense media scrutiny. Following an exceptional college football career with the Florida Gators and a promising playoff run with the Denver Broncos, Tebow was traded to the New York Jets. He was released after one season.
In Shaken, Tebow talks about what he’s learned along the way, building confidence in his identity in God, not the world. This moving book also features practical wisdom from Scripture and insights gained from others who have impacted Tebow in life-changing ways.
Though traveling hard roads is not easy, it’s always worth it!
"I'm grateful for the life experiences I've had--the good, the bad, and the ugly. Sure, I've had my ups and downs. As I've done things a little bit differently, the world has tried to force me onto a roller coaster of identities, defining me by my circumstances and not who I really am.
Was my identity found in the highs when I won the Heisman and later when the Denver Broncos were making a play-off run? No. Was my identity found when, a year later, I was cut? No.
One day, according to the world, I'm on top of my game, adored, praised, and respected. And the next, I'm at the bottom of the heap, cut, criticized, and torn down. You know what I've learned in the process? How important it is not to allow either the highs or the lows in life to determine who you are.
It's tempting to define ourselves or to measure our worth by the external--by how much money we have, by how we look, by the applause of others. The list is long. Think about this. Who are you when everything is going great...And who are you when you're world is shaken?"
If you want to read more, just head on over to Tim's website! You can download the whole first chapter right now! All you have to do is follow the link, enter your email address, and wait patiently for that special email!
