DISSECTING THE STRONGHOLD OF SPORTS! This book is about the relationship that is formed between the athlete and the sport. For some athletes, their relationship with sports evolve into a dynamic marriage that is blissful, valuable and rewarding; that is, until you are facing divorce. Separating from the game can be significantly difficult, overwhelmingly depressing and catastrophically dangerous for many. Though most athletes work hard on their physical frame to be uniquely chiseled, they must also work on their spiritual relationship with God. For a vast number of children around the world, their initial aspirations are centered in athletics; which can be a very positive endeavor but can also be a very dangerous one. Here are some questions we should consider when recognizing the signs of danger in our young athletes: Are many of their school papers about sports? When Mom and Dad divorced, were they playing sports? When Dad never came to pick up his child, were they still playing sports? When they suffered abuse, were they involved in sports? If so, sports have consistently been there for them; but how do they cope with life when it's not? This book will take you on a journey of the author's childhood to discover where the stronghold of sports began. He discusses the value in having a trusting, unmovable and loving foundation versus having a foundation built on your aspirations for the game. After reading this book, you will truly have an understanding on how to make God bigger than your problems, your fears, your disappointments and the game! n
