About Me

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Shaken by Tim Tebow Book Review

Who are you when life is steady?  Who are you when storms come?   Shaken is an inspirational book that will encourage you to discover your true identity in God and not the world.  When we are willing to let God shape our identity, He will take whatever we have to offer and multiply it in ways and for a purpose that we cannot even begin to imagine.

One of the first verses Tim Tebow mentions is Psalm 16:8 which says "I have set the Lord continually before me;  Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken."  It's very obvious that Tim has not only claimed that verse, but he also lives it.  Tim has been able to stay grounded in his faith despite disappointment, criticism, and intense media scrutiny.  He has had his faith stretched and challenged and he has shown the world that no matter how many times he gets knocked down, he still holds onto God's promises.  He believes God always has a better plan and holds onto that truth and God's unfailing love.  

Near the end of the book Tim writes this beautifully about his mission in life.
"I want my life to speak louder than a world record.  I don't just want to leave a legacy on the field.  I want to live off the field in a way that outlives me.  I want my love for God and for others to shine greater than an incredible comeback moment, a heavy gold trophy, or a handful of favorable headlines."

Before reading this book, I didn't know much about Tim Tebow other than he was a great quarterback at one time for the FL Gators.  After reading Shaken, I have a better understanding of who Tim Tebow is and he's so much more than just a football player that has won a Heisman Trophy.  He's a role model that I would want my son to look up to.  He's a real person with a heart that wants others to know Jesus.  He has a kind, sensitive spirit for others especially people battling illnesses or those who can't fight for themselves.

Shaken will be on sale October 25th.  To read more about this book or to pre-order it, click here.  To read more about Tim Tebow, please click here.
