"Game Changer" by Kirk Cousins


Washington Redskins' Quarterback, Kirk Cousins, is a class act.  Prior to reading this book, I admit I didn't know very much about him.  After all, I come from a long line of Green Bay Packers fans. :)  But after reading this, I think I may have just become an instant Washington Redskins fan. 
Cousins comes from an extraordinarily supportive and wonderful Christian family. He was raised to make good decisions in life, and it turns out that making good decisions is one of the most important parts of being a successful quarterback  In "Game Changer", Cousins takes the reader through his football backstory.  We get a very real and transparent description of how God lead him through the ups and downs of his journey toward a successful career in the NFL. And in the process of telling his own story, he guides the reader toward how to be a success using God's standards and guidelines for our everyday living. 
I found this book to be a very interesting and encouraging read. About half of the book is really directed toward young students, but the principles he teaches in the book can be applied to us not-so-young people very easily as well.  I would recommend this book to families- especially those with teenage boys.  Reading it together could lead to some very good discussions about good life decision making, including where we as Christians should place our trust, and how to not let ourselves get off track.
