I'm not really into sports, but I have known who Tim Tebow is for several years now, and have always been very impressed by his humility and genuine heart for God. I don't often read non-fiction and had never read anything by this author, but when I was given the opportunity to join the launch team for this book I felt a nudge from God to sign up! Needless to say, I listened to that nudge and I'm so glad I did because this book was EXACTLY what I needed to read at this point in my life! Speaking as someone who has of late felt "stuck" in life and wondering just what next step God wants me to take in His plan for my life, God used this book to inspire and energize me to reach out right where I am and share His love with people! Tim's words were a fantastic reminder that even when it might not feel like it I am loved by God, I matter, the things I say and do matter, God has a purpose and a plan for my life, and that He will work through me to impact the lives of the people around me if I will only be open to it! Tim writes in such a conversational way that reading this book felt like chatting with a friend, he did a great job of using stories from his own life to get his point across and inspire without ever becoming preachy. I especially loved all the suggestions for applying the message in each chapter to your life and the examples of ways to live out your purpose in real world, everyday life moments. This is one book that I know I will be rereading many times in the future, it impacted me in a tremendously powerful way, left me feeling excited for whatever God has in store for me, and filled me with a determination and reawakened desire to tell people just how much God loves them! Overall, I absolutely loved every moment of this book, I would share a favorite quote but there are simply too many for me to choose, nary a page passed without at least one quote that I wanted to highlight, and I'm already itching to reread it so I can savor all the fabulous quoteable reminders! I highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone and am very much looking forward to reading more of Tim Tebow's books in the future! Seriously, this book is SO GOOD! I dare you to read This is the Day and tell me it didn't change you!
I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher, which did not influence my review in any way. All thoughts and opinions are one hundred percent my own.
