From the Back Cover

As an athlete with a passion for sports, you have a unique view of life through a competitive lens. And yet, your drive for success and commitment to your sport may lead to being set apart from others, distancing yourself from friends, family, church and school. God doesn’t intend for you to go it alone. He wants to be included in your athletics and in every other area of your life. Heart of an Athlete™ makes it easy to receive regular spiritual training that won’t take over your workout schedule. Here are 90 inspiring devotions written specifically for athletes of every level. Now you can gain insight into handling daily challenges and using biblical principles to become a true competitor for Christ.

I am always searching for a daily devotional book for my teenage son that he will actually read regularly. This is it! He is 17 and plays competitive sports. He has been reading it since I gave it to him. I see it on his bedside table, I see it in his sports bag when he travels, I see it on the kitchen table. He even tells me it is a great book and it's helping him. I highly recommend it!

This daily devotional/reading is incredible for all athletes (girls and boys). It is another way to bring our children closer to God through an avenue that they are passionate about. Great purchase!

I bought this for my son and his friend. They are both athletes and very passionate about every sport they play...especially football... I want them to know there is more to life than what media or society says about athletes. I also appreciate that each devotional was written by an athlete. I haven't gotten feed back from the boys, but I liked what I read.

I bought two of these for my niece and nephew at Christmas. They are 11 and 13 and both are athletes. They are wonderful children, but it worries me that they do not have the Christian influence/beginning I had as a young child. I just feel kids need to have something to read or a place to find answers if things in their life are not going the way they want. I actually down played the book when they opened it as not to scare them off, but to my surprise, they both have it by their bedside and have told me they are enjoying the short stories. I would recommend this book to any young athlete in your family and tell them to just have it by their bedside in case they want to read something quick and from there...it's in God's hands. When the world gets dark, it helps to have a little light at your fingertips!
