Tim Tebow has sparked a lot of interest over the years as one of the greatest college quarterbacks in history with the Florida Gators to his time as the starting quarterback with the Denver Broncos to the most recent trade to the New York Jets. One thing about Tebow, though, is his commitment to his faith, family, and football. I admire Tebow a lot and just recently became a donor to the Tim Tebow Foundation so I was very interested in his book and read through it fascinated. Through My Eyes by Tim Tebow and Nathan Whitaker is a very inspirational memoir of his life - from birth through his college career - and how his faith, family, and dedication to being the best have helped shape him into the man he is today.
Tim Tebow describes his family and birth in the Philippines in great detail and how God provided life to him even though doctors advised his mother to abort. Choosing to be pro-life and following what she believed in, Pam Tebow brought Tim into the world in a special way that could have happened with the intervention of God. Tim was brought up in a Christian home and has led a missionary life which has helped him in spreading his message from the stage he is now on. His families dedication to living faithfully according to God's Word has helped shape Tim into a man who praises God for all that he has accomplished.
Reading the stories of Tebow's life from his point of view is inspirational and humbling. The situations he faces are similar to what we all face and his strength to persevere and honor God through it all will help put many things into perspective in your life. It has taught me to stay true to my beliefs and honor God in everything and to put your foot forward to promote the gospel of Jesus with the stage you are presented with. This is a must read for everyone, even those who are not sports fans, because it touches on so much more than what he went through in a college game. It goes into how he was taught to live and how he lived for Christ and shows as a great role model for us to be encouraged by.
