Through My eyes: A Quarterback's Journey.

Tebow, T., & Whitaker, N. (2011). Through my eyes: A quarterback’s journey. Grand Raids, MI: Zondervan.
As a young boy Tim Tebow had dreams, dreams that he began working to achieve at an extremely young age.  In his book, Through My Eyes, Tim tells of his life as the youngest son of missionaries, homeschooling, and living on a working farm.  Tim began working to excel at sports through extra training at home both alone and with his brothers.  The book includes descriptions of many of Tim’s games from high school through college from his point of view.  Even though Through My Eyes centers on football, the book includes a personal analysis of what it takes to achieve high levels of success.  Tim’s accomplishments result from his hard work and drive, a strong family structure and support system, as well as his strong Christian faith.  

I totally enjoyed Tim’s story since it is always such a joy to me to hear about someone setting goals and reaching them.  I would recommend this book for anyone who likes football, young people who have dreams, and parents who want to help them reach those dreams.  Thoroughly uplifting and enjoyable story. Don't think that it is only for those who love football.
