ABOUT


Through My Eyes” is a retelling of Tim Tebow`s story based on how he recalled and viewed his journey in life. Before he was born, his mother was advised to abort him because of the dangers her pregnancy entails to both her and the baby she was carrying. Through faith, Timothy “Tim”/”Timmy” Richard Tebow was born in Makati City, Philippines on August 14, 1987. In this book, he narrates his journey which led him to win the Heisman Trophy in 2007, become part of the NFL as a quarterback and eventually establish his foundation in 2010.

Mr. Tim Tebow`s story is inspiring and motivating me to achieve my goals and dreams in life with the intent to serve the Lord and other people. I was able to get a glimpse of his life growing up with a family whose values are centered on their faith. His stories of how he took care of his health, motivated himself to do better as a person and athlete and stayed faithful despite the difficulties he faced inspired me to become a better person regardless of what the world say. I admired his compassion to the needy especially children who are differently-abled or going through the difficulties of having illnesses. The way he told stories in his life with honesty especially during times his team/s experienced losses was very inspiring because it was relatable. Even though he`s now a popular public figure, it was motivating to know that all of us experienced and will experience losses in life no matter how hard we work. We just have to keep on getting better and trusting the One that matters the most.

TIM TEBOW FOUNDATION

The Tim Tebow Foundation has a lot of projects such as Night to Shine, Orphan Care, Timmy`s Playroom, Tebow Cure Hospital, W15H, Team Tebow, and Tim Tebow Adoption Aid.

The book is mostly appropriate for the general public. Mr. Tim Tebow mostly talked about his journey in life which involved his faith, athleticism, and compassion to people.

It is truly amazing to read the story of someone who is a role model to many and has such great morals centered on his faith. This world is blessed with a man that shines his light upon it. Through his faith and good works, I hope and pray that he will bless, inspire and touch more lives.

Rating: (5/5)

 


Mr. Tim Tebow will have another book entitled “Shaken” which will be for sale on October 25 , 2016 at WaterBrook & Multnomah. I`m quite thrilled that he has another book which updates us on his experiences and how he has been since being with the Denver Broncos, New York Jets, New England Patriots, and Philadelphia Eagles.
