Popular Christian athlete and celebrity Tim Tebow has won a Christian book of the year award for his book Shaken: Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life's Storms in which the former Heisman Trophy winner and NFL player discusses his successes and failures in life and how he has learned to trust God through both.
According to The Christian Post, Tebow is now working on a new book for homeschoolers and their families.
The book is called Know Who You Are, Live Like It Matters: A Homeschooler's Interactive Guide to Discovering Your True Identity and is a guide for students who are educated at home and the parents and guardians who teach them.
"Tim 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," reads a description of the book. "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 the book’s introduction, Tebow writes, "I know being homeschooled may not be the easiest thing in the world, so I wanted to write a book just for you. 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 is currently pursuing a career in baseball and was signed to the New York Mets organization to play with the Mets’ minor league team, the Columbia Fireflies.
