Have you ever wished someone had given you a 'heads up'? Sports can be tough. Everyone falls down or has a bad game once in a while. Athletes battle temptations, criticism, and mental blocks on and off the field. They run hard, fall hard, and play hard. All-stars need a tough faith. Heads Up! combines biblical principles with stories of athletes and sporting events, fun sports trivia, tips, and rare facts and figures. Each day's thought includes a 'Game Plan' memory verse, a 'Playbook Assignment' Scripture reading, an 'Instant Replay' life application question, a 'Sports Stuff' segment with practical athletic advice, and 'On the Chalkboard' final thoughts that bring everything together. This unique devotional is great for reluctant readers and is sure to inspire young players and sports fanatics.

I love devotionals. Not only can they bring families together, but they can help children (and adults) relate to specific Bible verses in an easy way. When I received this book to review, I was very excited. I love getting these types of books, especially when I know I can use them with my 3 children.

While this book is a bit too "old" for my kids right now, I'm looking forward to sharing it with them in a few years. The book is an easy read. Broken down into 93 days, each devotion has a 'Play Book Assignment' (Bible verse), story, 'On the Chalkboard' (recap of what you should be doing), Instant Replay and a short paragraph about sports! Each devotion is fun, thought provoking, and a great idea for the whole family to participate in.

I highly recommend this book for children of middle school/high school age, even if they don't play sports. What an awesome book for sports lovers, athletes and families!
