Athletes have a passion for sports that makes them unique, viewing life through a competitive lens. The desire to compete and their drive for success can mean seeing friends, family, church and school as distractions. Usually the first to be sacrificed is their spiritual life. And yet, God does not intend for athletes to go it alone. Heart of an Athlete is spiritual training for the competitor, 120 devotions written specifically for athletes of every level. It goes straight to the issues that matter most to athletes, such as identity, fear, trust and recognition. This athletic devotional encourages readers to spend regular, short and meaningful time in God’s Word to help them become true competitors for Christ.

I am always searching for a daily devotional book for my teenage son that he will actually read regularly. This is it! He is 17 and plays competitive sports. He has been reading it since I gave it to him. I see it on his bedside table, I see it in his sports bag when he travels, I see it on the kitchen table. He even tells me it is a great book and it's helping him. I highly recommend it!
I bought two of these for my niece and nephew at Christmas. They are 11 and 13 and both are athletes. They are wonderful children, but it worries me that they do not have the Christian influence/beginning I had as a young child. I just feel kids need to have something to read or a place to find answers if things in their life are not going the way they want. I actually down played the book when they opened it as not to scare them off, but to my surprise, they both have it by their bedside and have told me they are enjoying the short stories. I would recommend this book to any young athlete in your family and tell them to just have it by their bedside in case they want to read something quick and from there...it's in God's hands. When the world gets dark, it helps to have a little light at your fingertips!
This is a great book. I purchased this to have for my 10 year old twin boys who are big into sports. Each night before bed, we read one of these together and then answer the questions and say a prayer. I think it is important to instill Christian values into my children and completing these devotionals with them every night shows my dedication to them as well as to our faith. Some of the stories are a little advances in subject matter for a 10 year old, but we skip over those and will review them as they get older. I still explain them to them if they ask about them, but we focus on the ones that are more applicable to their age range. I can see us using this books for many years to come.
