Who are you when life is steady?
Who are you when storms come?
Most of us have been on the receiving end of rejection, a broken dream, or heartbreak. And while this is not an easy space to go through, when we are grounded in the truth, we can endure the tough times.
In this powerful book, Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow passionately shares glimpses of his journey staying grounded in the face of disappointment, criticism, and intense media scrutiny. Following an exceptional college football career with the Florida Gators and a promising playoff run with the Denver Broncos, Tebow was traded to the New York Jets. He was released after one season.
In Shaken, Tebow talks about what he's learned along the way, building confidence in his identity in God, not the world. This moving book also features practical wisdom from Scripture and insights gained from others who have impacted Tebow in life-changing ways.
Though traveling hard roads is not easy, it's always worth it!

I really enjoyed Shaken. With such a fervent message of hope and many examples of real struggles, it was inspiring to hear how Tim chose to be vulnerable, trust and walk out daily life in good times and bad through Christ. Im sure most of us can resonate with struggles so the perspective he gives is uplifting and encouraging in a humble manner. It touched me as he noted stories of receiving encouragement in amazing ways by the sick children he has ministered to. It's so beautiful to see the courage to share the good news throughout this book as the core of the message is to keep Christ as the main foundation, share his word and love people. I have gained strength, faith and hope from Shaken. Thank you Tim!
Don't give up on the read. Slow to start but all comes together at the end. Recommend!
"Tim Tebow has touched my heart and mind!"
Right now I only have the audio version, but do plan on purchasing the printed version to have for future reference.
Tim Tebow. His ability to relate to different discouraging events in everyone's lives was incredible.
There were so many instances that I thought he was talking to me or my child it's hard to choose just one that moved me. His ability to relay his experiences is amazing and captivating.
I listened to this book every morning on my way to work and every evening on my way home. It was difficult for me to stop listening when I would arrive at my destination...this is truly that kind of book. There were so many times that I felt like he was speaking directly to me. The real life struggles that he has gone through and his ability to endure and rise above the difficulties gives me encouragement.
"Inspirational and authentic"
Really good book, focusing not on his accomplishments on the gridiron but rather some very tragic events and some of his failures. It is sad in parts but ultimately inspiring. Tebow has his critics but no one can doubt that he is authentic and focused on a much larger picture than football. Book details some real heroes struggling with afflictions or situations that would break most people, but the book is also about perspective for dealing with those situations. Undoubtedly he and some of the people in the book will have a true legacy that far outlives some of the legacies of the famous athletes and entertainers that are held up so high in this day and age.
The narration was good, but I would have preferred to have Tebow himself narrate it. I highly recommend this book.
Loved to hear Tim Tebows insights, honesty, stories and faith. His transparency is a true testimony of Gods power and goodness.
Only wished Tim would have read it himself. In-person view of a truly motivating life.
"Tim Scores a Touchdown for God!"
I have to honestly rank it in my top 10 listens so far! Tim's words, feelings, and openness for sharing his heart check all my boxes!
When I read/listen to a book, I don't notice stand out moments, so I would have to say the whole book was memorable for me.
Fred's voice was welcoming and pleasant to listen to. Some books I have tried to listen to have had narrators who sound like digital voices of robots, or there is no tone or emotion in their voice. I initially thought it was was Tim reading!
If I had had the time to do so, it would have been nice, but then, I had something to look forward to everyday when I drove to work, so it worked out great.
I am a lover of books about religion and spirituality, so this book was a welcome read. I only knew of Tim through the football games, and especially when he was being picked on for displaying his faith on the field. At the time, I was disappointed at the football league and his fellow players for this, and felt much respect for him for not bowing down to the "image" he was expected to maintain. After he left football and really went to work sharing his faith journey, I became a fan and looked forward to hearing what he had to say.
"Worth the Purchase"
The content is engaging and thought provoking. I just wish that the author read the book, but the reader was pretty good though.
"Great attitude readjustment"
Great stories, analogies, insights, and quotes. Very personable, relatable, and actionable. Super easy to understand and follow, and a great encouragement to take action. It has propelled me personally and professionally through new ambition already.
I watched Tim Tebow play football. He takes you through his College football and Pro Football journey. We don't know what goes on or what the inside story is in a person's life This book tells that story
"Absolutely Love The Book!"
I really enjoyed this book. It is well written, inspiring, entertaining and extremely well narrated. You will not be disappointed with this purchase.
