Shaken by Tim Tebow

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!
Your Circumstances do not Define You,
Your Identity Does.

I was so excited to read this book, and it honestly could not have come at a better time in my life. Last year I had lost myself, a major part of who I am was no longer there. I had given up talking to God and I had given up on myself, not really caring who I was anymore.

Then I got this book for Christmas. I love Tim,  not only what he stands for but who he is as a person. I can’t tell you how much this book encouraged my heart. I finally felt like it was time to be me again, and I knew how. Shaken helped me remember my goals in life and who I wanted to be in Christ.

I feel like the reader gets to see a different side of Tim Tebow in this book, a more real , honest and raw version. He walks us through his disappointment’s and also gives encouragement .

One of my favorite quotes from the book (besides the  above pictured )is : “When we ask questions, when we doubt, when we wonder if God is going to pull through, or wonder why He didn’t pull through, or wonder why our miracle is  taking so long, or why the miracle never came at all, remember that doubt is normal. God isn’t scared of your questions. Bring them to Him. It’s better to vent to Him than to run from Him.”

Easily five stars! Something everyone should read.

Forever and Always ,
