Facing the Blitz By Jeff Kemp

Every Trial Is an Opportunity to Flourish
In football, a blitz is an all-out attack. Defenses use them to force the quarterback into a mistake and create mayhem and destruction. But by its nature the blitz also creates an opportunity for the quarterback and his team, as it leaves holes in the defense. What looks like the worst play can become the best.
During a life "blitz," when everything seems like it's collapsing--financially, relationally, spiritually, or physically--if you take initiative you can do more than just survive. You can grow, succeed, and advance. In Facing the Blitz, Jeff Kemp shares lessons he's learned through all kinds of life blitzes, both personal and professional. Discover how life is about transformation and being others-oriented; having the right mind-set can turn unnecessary fear and misery into courage and joy.
No matter who you are--men, women, sports fans, business leaders, etc.--this book is about the things that matter in your life. Don't end up flat on your back when trouble comes. Learn to seize opportunities to flourish and grow.
Includes end-of-chapter questions for assessment and application.

 Kemp uses the example of a football blitz in place of life trails and tribulation. Sports fans and non sports fans alike will find this to be an easy read. I found that the author didn't overload the book with football terms and strategies. I liked that not only did he explain how to face a blitz in life but also described how the supporting cast of friends and family play their part in overcoming a tribulation. The author puts a great emphasis on what kind of people should fill your life. Not all relationships are good ones. I found it to be a very uplifting and encouraging read.
I gave this book 4 stars. It is well worth the read.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.
