Shaken (Review and Sweepstakes)


There is no greater discovery than seeing God as the author of your destiny. ~quote from Ravi Zacharias

I received much more than I expected from this book, and that’s not to say I didn’t have expectations of enjoying it. I did. I’ve followed Tim Tebow’s testimony, football career, and even the reality show he co-hosts, Home Free. But Shaken is about much more than Tim’s passions and careers. It’s a powerful read for all of us for when we go through difficult times, or when our world gets shaken.

What am I going to do? What am I going to be? What am I going to strive for? ~excerpt, pg. 20

I certainly didn’t anticipate how inspiring this book would be. The stories within are humble, genuine, and show Tim’s character and heart. Through many ups and downs, his faith stands unshaken, and his calling as a role model is only one of his gifts.

Shaken: Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life’s Storms, contains powerful stories that show that good can come of bad, that positive things can come from negative happenings. It’s important that we know that, and that we know who we are when storms enter our path.  Our true identity is built by Who we have faith in, Who we let guide us, and Who gave us our gifts in the first place.

A truly rousing and gratifying read.

First Lines: The locker room was somber. A strange mixture of sadness, tension, loss. 

Tim Tebow is a two-time national champion, first round NFL draft pick, and Heisman trophy winner. While leaving college, he founded the Tim Tebow Foundation, which exists to bring faith, hope and love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. Each day the foundation fulfills this mission by making dreams come true for children with life-threatening illnesses, taking care of thousands of orphans worldwide, providing life-changing surgeries for children in the Philippines, and fighting for those who can’t fight for themselves. After playing in the NFL for the Denver Broncos and the New York Jets, Tebow joined the ESPN/SEC Network–in one of his current roles–as a football analyst. When he’s not talking sports, you can find him contributing to a variety of ESPN platforms and co-hosting FOX’s reality television show Home Free.

I received an advanced reader copy of this book from the publisher.
