Tim Tebow Writes Book for Homeschoolers
Popular Christian athlete, philanthropist, and author Tim Tebow has written a book to help homeschool parents and children discover their true identity.
Know Who You Are, Live Like It Matters: A Homeschooler's Interactive Guide to Discovering Your True Identity is Tebow’s third published book. According to the book’s publisher WaterBrook & Multnomah, his latest book will "guide you through thirty-six weeks of lessons, each based on a key Scripture, to discover who you are-by learning more about whose you are. You will also have the opportunity to write down your thoughts, feelings, and ideas on topics such as: building godly character, maintaining great relationships, standing out from the crowd and doing things that matter in the big picture."
In his book, Tebow said that he hopes to inspire others through his story.
"I know being homeschooled may not be the easiest thing in the world, so I wanted to write a book just for you,” The Gospel Herald reported. “I'd like to encourage you in your studies by offering some lessons I've learned in my personal journey, lessons I want you to be a part of. I want this book to be about you: digging deep to find out who you are and what that means in real life."
Tebow’s previous book Shaken won a Christian book of the year award from the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. A fourth book titled Rise: Believing in Yourself When Others Don’t is slated for an October 2017 release.
Despite being a two-time national champion quarterback in college and a Heisman trophy winner for being the best college football player in the nation, Tebow quickly became a polarizing figure in the media for his flamboyant leadership and outspoken Christian beliefs. In a brief three-year career in the National Football League, Tebow compiled a winning record of 8-6, including six fourth quarter comeback wins. He currently plays minor league baseball three levels below Major League Baseball in the New York Mets organization. Through May 15, he was hitting .236 with 2 home runs in his first full season playing baseball.
