All In For Him - Devotional for College Athletes

Athletes are gifted by God. They train rigorously to achieve their best physical performance. They prepare mentally to be at the top of their game. But how do they strengthen their spirit? This devotional will challenge college athletes and aspiring college athletes to bring all three elements together to become a complete competitor. This twenty-one day journey will help develop a spiritual edge as they connect the talent they have been blessed with to a bold, authentic faith in Jesus. An All In For Him mindset will make a significant impact for Christ on teammates, coaches, and fans alike.

Meet the Author:
Gwen Thielges is a blogger, Kindermusik educator, and worship leader. She and her husband have three sons, one daughter, and one daughter-in-law. Her sons are college athletes, her daughter is a high school athlete, her husband coaches high school basketball, and she is a loyal fan in the stands.

My Take:
I was quite impressed with this devotional. Gwen encourages college athletes to put God first, to be all they can be for Him, to shine - but not in their own power - in His, both on and off the field.

I looked into this book for my grandson who loves sports and will soon be going to college. Although, he is still completing a couple of high school years, I think this devotional will be helpful to prepare him for sport participation in college.

The devotionals were short and to the point, one to two pages, pretty easy to comprehend, yet challenging enough for an older teen. They included great advice, encouragement, Scriptures to back up what was being taught, and a prayer. There is tons of great information.

I recommend this book for any high school and college athlete intent on being a great teammate, Christian, and striving to become all God wants in the area of sports. It could likely be read by both male and female audiences.

I received a free copy of this book courtesy of Book Crash. I was not asked to write a positive review, and all opinions are my own.
