Excellent book! Tim Tebow is a football player for Christ. He was a farm boy, and home-schooling child with a dream. He proved that with hard work you can realize your dream. Tim started off as a small, very competitive kid. Since he was the youngest, he was always trying to be just as good as his brothers. But his brothers, like many other brothers, wouldn’t let him win just to make him feel better. So to be just as good, he had to build up muscle. When he was only thirteen years old Tim did 400 push-ups and sit-ups each every day! And to gain more muscle he asked for some weights for Christmas. He became a quarterback because of his strength. He had an undefeated season at the end of high school. Because of his remarkable skills and team-leadership abilities, he received over eighty scholarship offers. Since his whole family had graduated from the University of Florida he was biased to go there. That is where the Lord led him. From there, he went on to win many awards including the Heisman award. Next, his life took another huge turn and his dream became a reality. He would now be playing in the National Football League (NFL) for the Denver Broncos. His dream fulfilled. Tim always gives glory to God. Before the game and after the game he bows his knee in prayer, leaving the results to the Lord Jesus Christ. With all this Tim is likely one of the most remarkable players in NFL football. To learn more about Tim Tebow, check out his book at your local library.

Tim Tebow loves football. Born in the Philippines to a father who prayed for him by name before "Timmy" was conceived, his mother was told to abort him. She didn't. This is the story of how a home-schooled young boy who couldn't figure out what it meant to say sports are just about having fun (winning counts too, Tim always said) grew up, and got famous. Along with that fame, were a lot of other people trying to tell his story, and not always doing a great job of it. So Tebow wrote this book, to tell his story, to set the record straight. His family, his upbringing, his games are detailed along with the bedrock of his life, which is his faith. This is the guy whose "John 3:16" in the black under his eyes worn during a game led to that verse of the New Testament being Googled over 94 million times. Tim's a cool kid and a great athlete with a big heart, and a solid faith. Available in book, large print book, e-book, and audiobook editions. The book is "Dedicated to all those who've been told they couldn't achieve their dreams." Tim's a two-time NCAA National Football Champs, first sophomore to earn the Heisman Trophy,
