Gain insight into handling daily challenges and use biblical principles to become a true competitor for Christ.
As a competitor with a passion for sports, an athlete or coach views all of life through a sports lens. Whether you are an athlete, coach, or sports enthusiast, your competitive drive for success and commitment to your sport may lead to being set apart from others, distancing yourself from friends, family, and church.
God wants to be the center not only of your athletics but every other area of your life. Heart of a Competitor is a powerful game plan, providing regular spiritual training that won't take over your workout schedule. Included in this book are 90 inspiring devotions written by competitors for competitors at every level.
Now you can gain insight into handling daily challenges and use biblical principles to become a true competitor for Christ. Whether you are putting on a jersey and stepping onto the field of competition, or you are simply trying to get fit, you will be prepared to worship as you compete and give God glory.
"Athletics can be a great way to learn lessons about everyday life. But what is really special is when you can take athletic lessons and apply them to your spiritual life. Heart of a Competitor takes a look at how the tests we face as players and coaches can help us grow as Christians."
Tony Dungy, former head coach, Indianapolis Colts
"In Heart of a Competitor, you will see that it is just as important to train spiritually as it is to train physically and mentally. When you focus on training the total body, it will take you to the next level."
Tamika Catchings, WNBA All Star and three-time Olympic Gold Medalist
"Having a competitive nature obviously affects things on the pitching mound, but it also translates into life off the mound. As believers, we are called to work with all of our hearts, as though working for the Lord and not for man. That means baseball and that means life. Heart of a Competitor is an awesome resource for believers--both on and off the field. Each devotion is an encouragement to live and compete for the Lord's glory. Life isn't always about winning a game; it's about living for the Lord in all that we do. This book helps to keep that in perspective."
Clayton Kershaw, Major League Baseball pitcher and coauthor of Arise
