Throughout his football career at the University of Florida and in the NFL, homeschool graduate Tim Tebow modeled and shared his deep Christian faith. Now in Know Who You Are. Live Like It Matters, Tebow reveals the source of his attitude and success, not just in athletics, but in all of life: the careful study and modeling of Jesus’ life.
This interactive reflection journal features thirty-six sessions divided between four units:
- Who Are You?
Jesus as the source of identity
Don’t Sweat It; God’s Got It guidance for tough times
Others Matter the importance of relationships
Live Bigger living in a way that impacts eternity
Each chapter includes a Bible verse and short lesson that often features illustrations from Tim’s own life. Sessions end with “In Your Own Words” writing prompts where students can take the opportunity to write down their reflections and thoughts in response to the lesson. Students will be challenged to soak deeper into the Word and lean on Jesus to guide their lives!
You know I almost didn’t review this book because Tim Tebow wrote it….. I mean as a wife of a very devote Ohio State fan. But now that Urban Meyer is the coach of Ohio State I thought it would be safe. 😉
Know Who You Are came at the perfect time. Ash and Seth both need to read this book right now. I love how its simply written but asks questions that are meant for thought.
It is broken up into a 36 week study. While I think we could easily do two sections a week that may not be true for all families. Tebow takes examples from his life and uses them as examples to ask questions of his readers. I really liked how each week had a theme verse. Some were familiar and Tebow encourages you to rethink them, while others might not be as familiar.
There are sections to write your thoughts down and even journal space. More than anything for me it was good for my kids to see the “after homeschool” perspective. With Ash starting her sophomore year at home sometimes its tough when she sees what other kids are doing and wonders “what if.” (Sometimes I wonder that too.) But it was also good to be reminded with this book, that this is the path God has chosen for our family. We should embrace it, love it, and know that it is for God’s glory.
