The New York Times best-selling sports star and media icon motivates readers to stop postponing dreams and start making them happen now because--this is the day.
Beyond Tim Tebow's exploits as a Heisman-winning football player, he is widely known and respected for his exemplary character and personal excellence, which have made him a role model for millions. When Tim interacts with the public, he often encounters people who feel "stuck"--unable to take action on matters ranging from daily life to pursuing lifelong dreams. In response, Tim often identifies a crippling fear or lack of courage, to which he advises: "now is the time to take some risks, to quiet the voices of defeat, to step forward and make a mark, because this is the day." In this inspiring, motivational book, readers will receive the advice and encouragement to daily move from "pause" to "play" in finding deeper meaning and success. Tim illustrates the book's themes with stories from his personal life that will delight all readers, including his an update on his dream pursuit of a baseball career.
Former NFL quarterback Tebow (Shaken) inspires readers to uncover their potential and discover God's purpose for their lives in this spirited book. Tebow begins with touching and recent stories that explain how his faith and life intertwine, recalling how he helped feed families in the wake of Hurricane Irma in 2017 and giving a gripping account of praying with a woman whose husband went into cardiac arrest during a flight to Phoenix. Tebow explains how focusing on others and being aware of who and what is around at any given moment (much like a top-level quarterback) can help one embrace the present. Made famous by his football career, Tebow also speaks about his latest foray into the world of professional baseball, using the experience to illustrate the power of believing in God's plan and purpose. Although Tebow's advice is often pat ("Show up when you can shine light on dark places. Be present whenever you can represent His love"), his stories are truly inspirational. Through his example, Christian readers will be motivated to "believe in a God-sized dream."

Much love Tim Tebow such a great book soo inspirational!!
This book is so much more than some athlete telling a story. It’s about life. How to make this day, the best day. It’s about taking God off of a shelf, not to just go with you Sunday.. but everyday! This book is well sculpted, with a beautiful message that comes from real life experiences that everyone in their own way can relate to! I highly recommend this book for anyone! Literally anyone! I have been reading this book along with our nightly devotion to my 5 year old son and he has loved every minute of it. He may not fully understand it, but nevertheless it has still been a seed planted! Great job Tim Tebow and ultimately God for allowing you to write such a powerful, inspiring book! May God bless each one of y’all, and I hope you all get a blessing out of this book the way I did!
THIS IS THE DAY!
God has been preparing Tim Tebow’s heart for this message since his birth. As a young child, his Mom would wake up the clan singing the song based on Psalm 188:24: “This is the day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.” His Dad was more boisterous and would rush in shouting, “Here we go! Are you alive, alert, awake and enthusiastic?” Tebow’s parents also made sure he understood the importance of a personal relationship with Jesus and the need to share the Love of God with everyone he encounters.
This is the Day is a great encouragement for all readers no matter who you are, where you are or what you’re going through. Tebow encourages readers to trust God through all things and reminds us of the myriad of ways God has provided solutions when there seemed to be NO way. He also continually challenges readers to step out of our comfort zones, put down our electronic devices and pay attention to those around us. Take time to notice the lonely, hurting, those that are needing a quiet prayer said over and with them.
I have Tebow’s first book, but this one is a billion times better! In This is the Day, Tebow comes across as very realistic, approachable and inspirational. I was provided an ARC of this book by the Publisher. The opinions expressed here are completely my own and without influence. I’ve preordered a copy of this book for my own personal library as well as purchased a copy for a gift.
