Facing the Blitz


By Jeff Kemp

We all have trials in our lives; Jeff Kemp compares the trials to blitzes in football. Jeff is a retired NFL quarterback and uses his football background to help others with, what he calls, blitzes in their lives. There are three strategies for turning trials into triumphs;

1. Take a long-term view,
2. Be willing to change,
3. Reach out to others.

Jeff divides each of these into different parts. He uses scripture verses and stories to explain his points. At the end of each chapter, he includes questions divided into two sections,

Time out for self-reflection,
Run the play: practical application,

These are helpful in understanding and putting into use the information you have read.

If you enjoy and understand football, you will enjoy this book. I found the points that Jeff was making easy to understand with my minimum understanding of football, so do not let the football reference keep you from reading this book and finding help with trials that come your way. This book will help you to handle them. The last chapter is about finding your power source, God is there to help.

I received this book free from Bethany House for purpose of this review, I was not required to write a positive review, the opinions I have expressed are my own.
