In a period of development that has proven very difficult, tweens and teens are increasingly becoming influenced by their peers, what they read, and what they see and hear on TV, movies, and social media. We also have an epidemic in our culture today - depression, suicide, and substance abuse is at an all-time high; and, the victims are getting younger and younger – and no one is immune, not even the Christian athlete.

In the sporting world, a playbook is a set of plays, rules, and guidelines that are crucial for success. An athlete must understand and follow the game plan in order to achieve victory. God’s Playbook for the Game of Life is a devotional for young athletes to study the ultimate playbook and learn the truths, lessons, and direction the Word of God contains for a life of victory on and off the field.
