American sports icon Tim Tebow shares how he faces pressure head-on and the wisdom he’s learned—not from what the world says, but from what God says in His Word
The world does not define you
Nobody said your life would be easy. And the older you get, the more difficult it seems to become. Deep down you may know your value as a person isn’t defined by wearing cool name-brand clothes, scoring points for a sports team or even by having a huge number of social media followers. And you’re right! Your identity resides in something—in fact, Someone—much greater than anything this world can offer: the only identity worth having . . . is found in Jesus Christ!
Tim Tebow 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! You’ll 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
• Doing things that matter in the big picture
Get ready to live bigger than ever before . . . with your faith and identity secure in a God who loves you beyond measure!

JUST FOR PARENTS
I am so grateful you have decided to use this guide as part of your children’s lesson plans. As a homeschooled student, I know the effort, time, and work involved in choosing to educate your family. My parents were true pioneers in the homeschool movement. They took responsibility for educating their children before the general public even knew it was an option. I’m so grateful they were willing and committed to answering the call. And from the bottom of my heart, thank you for doing the same for your children!
The primary purpose of this book is to encourage students to reflect and put in writing thoughts, feelings, ideas, opinions, and experiences. While you may consider making some cursory adjustments to their entries (that is, if they make consistent spelling/grammar errors) or encouraging them to write more (if they need a push to hammer out more than one or two sentences), don’t judge their ideas or their writing.
Finally, journal entries should be completed within thirty minutes. And it’s best to set aside a specific day and time of the week for each lesson. Consistency is key!
I pray for God to honor your efforts, to give you strength when you’re tired, grace when you need it, and wisdom throughout the process. I pray this journal inspires your children to dig deep with God and helps them find their purpose.
