I wanted to take a moment to offer a word of congratulations to my friend Jeff Kemp on the release of his new book Facing the Blitz. In the book, Jeff invites men to embrace three life-altering strategies that will serve them well as they face the blitzes that are sure to come in their own lives.
About the Book:
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.

Praise for Facing the Blitz:
Facing the Blitz is a gem full of wisdom and hope and practical advice for anyone who fears suffering and difficulty. It’s easy to read, remember, and use. Amazing!

Jeff Kemp believes, like I do, that facing pressure is a part of God’s process for our lives. More radically, he believes that God wants to use the circumstances bringing chaos and disruption into our lives for our progress. That’s why I am doing the end-zone dance over Facing the Blitz. Authentic. Raw. Transforming.
