Tenacious: How God Used a Terminal Diagnosis to Turn a Family and a Football Team Into Champions by Jeremy Williams
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the touching story of Jeremy and Jennifer Williams and their two children Josie and Jacob.
Born and raised in a small town in western Georgia where sports and God are considered top priority.
This book follows both Jennifer and Jeremy's lives from a high school crush to there wedding made in heaven, and eventually to the earth shattering news of spina bifida and ALS.
Bringing a story of true courage. The courage it takes to live everyday... to live TENACIOUS!
Wow... is all I could say after reading this book. What an inspiring story!
At first I thought " it would be so much better if it was written in first person" by the end of the story I thought " oh.. now I understand".
Such a truly beautiful story!!
I just have to include the closing lines of the book as they spoke to my heart so clearly..
"You know, we all have a choice, every day, every hour, every minute - do we lay down our story (our plans, our dreams, etc.) and live out the story that God ordained for our lives, or do we not? What would happen if we, as an individual, as a church, as a world gave our all to Christ? What would happen if we made the decision to be- Tenacious."
.... I don't know but I personally intend to find out!! What about you?
"Tenacious- Persistent in maintaining, adhering to, or seeking something valued or desired."
I highly recommend this book to other teens, although I would assume any age would be inspired by it! :)
