Who are you when life is steady? 
Who are you when storms come?

Most of us have been on the receiving end of rejection, a broken dream, or heartbreak. And while this is not an easy space to go through, when we are grounded in the truth, we can endure the tough times.

In this powerful book, Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow passionately shares glimpses of his journey staying grounded in the face of disappointment, criticism, and intense media scrutiny. Following an exceptional college football career with the Florida Gators and a promising playoff run with the Denver Broncos, Tebow was traded to the New York Jets. He was released after one season. 

In Shaken, Tebow talks about what he’s learned along the way, building confidence in his identity in God, not the world. This moving book also features practical wisdom from Scripture and insights gained from others who have impacted Tebow in life-changing ways. 

Though traveling hard roads is not easy, it’s always worth it!

With all the ups and downs in his very public career, Tim Tebow seems like an excellent candidate to speak about the truth of identity and the challenges of life that threaten it—and his new book, Shaken: Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life’s Storms, proves exactly that by delivering a powerful and encouraging message for any reader.

The pages of this book share Tebow’s personal experiences, as well as a few from the people he’s encountered, and connect them with necessary biblical truths. The feelings of rejection, frustration, confusion he has felt over the years give the book understandable, relatable, and most likely, universal qualities. Page after page held so many great reminders for me—my identity in Christ cannot be shaken—that I couldn’t help but reach for my highlighter time and time again.

Shaken is an excellent book. It has something to offer any reader—even the one who isn’t a football fan or hasn’t followed Tebow’s career. It’s a worthwhile read, and I recommend it to anyone in need of a better understanding or a thoughtful reminder of identity in Christ.

Many, many thanks to the publisher for allowing me to be a part of the Shaken launch team and for providing me a copy of the book. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
