This is the Day by Tim Tebow (with A. J. Gregory)

My Review

I have been interested in and have followed Tim Tebow’s career since he first became known. I was saddened, as a football fan, when he left football. The vitriol he often calmly and professionally endured saddened me.

Tebow also has a resplendent program for the intellectually disabled, A Night to Shine. I have two family members who work with physically and intellectually disabled adults. Seeing how the men and women reacted to Tebow’s event brought tears to my eyes, but they were happy tears.

When an opportunity became available for me to review This Is The Day by Tim Tebow, I jumped at the chance. I am so glad I did.

Through experiences in sports and personal life, Tebow tells of his belief that “This is the Day.” He says, “Imagine when hearing the sound of the morning alarm, instead of groaning or slapping the snooze button, you awaken-mind, heart, and soul-to possibility…Imagine being fueled by a whisper: ’This is the day.’”

Tebow opens up about many of his life experiences growing up and as an adult. He relates stories of seemingly insignificant events, yet they have great significance, not only in his life but in the lives of those he (and others around him) have touched. He talks to readers as if we are sitting with him enjoying a cup of tea or coffee. Granted, he has the money to do some things we, the average readers, cannot. However, that shouldn’t stop us from doing, being and experiencing all we can within God’s plans for us.

“This is the day to say yes to your dreams.”

I received this book from WaterBrook. However, I was under no obligation to post a review.

Publisher’s Summary

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 an update on his dream pursuit of a baseball career.

  1. Tim Tebow is the real deal! I loved it when he played here for the Broncos! We live about 15 minutes south of the Broncos Training Camp and we have been down there several times to watch them practice. It was so much fun when Tebow and Manning were here! Tebow loves the Lord big time and that dude is the man! Our church hosts Night to Shine and it is awesome! God bless!

    • Oh, wow! I am just a wee bit jealous, LOL! I would have loved to have watched them together. However, I am a Cowboys fan through and through. Both my Dad and my baby Brother worked for the Cowboys before they passed away-great times and stories!!
