Saint Mary's Press, 2006 - 170 sivua
Train your young person's spirit. Help him or her grow stronger in faith and in commitment to God. Every sport presents us with moments to meet God. Wins give us moments for gratitude. Losses give opportunities to learn. Conflict with family and team members can lead us to deeper relationships. Through stories, prayers, and reflections, the pocket-sized More Than a Game helps young athletes find God, inner strength, and confidence at all these crossroad moments.

If you are a Christian looking for a Biblical devotional about sports, this is not it. This is twaddle written by pseudo-Catholic spiritists. Garbage. Do not waste your money. Lue koko arvostelu
