When I was offered to review Tim Tebow’s book Shaken I had never heard of him. I do not watch sports and haven’t since my father passed away in 2005. When I was younger he would watch baseball and that is the sport that I am most familiar with. After founding out I was going to be on the Tebow team of readers I did some research on the man. I discovered his love of God. That he was relationship oriented and worked with disabled children and people. I walked away with a new found respect for the young man. I was looking forward to reading Shaken.
I was not disappointed. Shaken is not about his football career, it’s about his life in a whole. It’s about the relationships that he has built with different types of people. What I love about Shaken was he valued people, especially those with disabilities or who have hard times in their lives. He tries to encourage his readers to be of service to others and live life well.
Here are some things that I took away from Shaken:
- Being normal is overrated. God created all of us uniquely different. No matter what our disability is. We are still beautiful and qualified in God’s eyes. I took away that I needed to stop thinking about being normal when it comes to my own disability and start appreciating how and why I was created the way that I am.
- No matter what is going on in your life, God’s got it. He doesn’t need our help.
- Knowing our identity in God is paramount to keeping the negative voices at bay that Satan uses to destroy us.
As you can see, I took a lot away from reading Tebow’s book. No matter if you love Football or sports or you don’t this book is still an encouragement.

In exchange for my honest review I was given a free copy of Tim Tebow’s book Shaken by Waterbrook. My opinions are my own.
