In this book you will read about people who are desperate for God's help, and how He doesn't forget those who need Him. Julie also shares her journey to find this story and how it transformed her life.

Quiet Strength

While we were on vacation we read the book Quiet Strength by Tony Dungy, former coach of the Indianapolis Colts football team. It is an amazing book that should be read by every person who wants to be successful in life, by every parent and every supervisor/boss. Tony shares the story of his life in a way that's easy to read but so profound. He is open about his successes and failures, about the things he's learned through them, and about how he's applied these lessons in his life.

I highly recommend this book!
