Find A Way: Book Review and Giveaway

About The Book:


When Merril talked about his dream of playing in the NFL all he heard was, that will be too hard, you can't beat those odds, it's impossible, and son don't put all your eggs in one basket! That inspired him to write Find a Way and put it on the top of the wall above all his goals. Find a Way would become a life-long philosophy that helped him achieve his dream of playing in the NFL, but also has helped him deal with the near loss of his hand as a young boy, the loss of his mother at a young age, overcome severe head trauma and battle and beat cancer.


About The Author:

Merril Hoge is a former professional football player. He played eight seasons at running back for the NFL's Pittsburgh Steelers and Chicago Bears. He is currently a sportscaster for ESPN television.
My Review:
This was a wonderful reminder of the power of living with hope, in spite of a life altering health crisis. As a 5+ year cancer survivor myself, I related to many of the emotions and thoughts that Hoge had. Hoge is such an inspiration to anyone who reads this book. Whether you area  football fan or not, you will be encouraged and inspired as you read this book. A very quick read and not a huge book (only 202 page) but it packs a huge punch! 
A great gift idea for any football fan in your life and anyone who loves inspirational reading, this holiday season!
