"Loved this book! Great characters, great story, & so much swooning!" –Cindi Madsen, USA Today bestselling author Life loves a good curveball... Seventeen-year-old Annie Lucas's life is completely upended the moment her dad returns to the major leagues as the new pitching coach for the Kansas City Royals. Now she's living in Missouri (too cold), attending an all-girls school (no boys), and navigating the strange world of professional sports. But Annie has dreams of her own—most of which involve placing first at every track meet...and one starring the Royals' super-hot rookie pitcher. But nineteen-year-old Jason Brody is completely, utterly, and totally off-limits. Besides, her dad would kill them both several times over. Not to mention Brody has something of a past, and his fan club is filled with C-cupped models, not smart-mouthed high school "brats" who can run the pants off every player on the team. Annie has enough on her plate without taking their friendship to the next level. The last thing she should be doing is falling in love. But baseball isn't just a game. It's life. And sometimes, it can break your heart...

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Stoicism is a philosophy that helps you deal with whatever stormy weather life throws at you. It will prepare you to deal with whatever stormy weather life throws at you. #2 The Stoics were particularly concerned with applying philosophy to everyday life. They saw themselves as veritable warriors of the mind, and the primary reason to study philosophy was to put it into practice. #3 Philosophy is a matter of little theory and a lot of practice. Like wrestling, it’s about going out there and applying what you’ve learned. Your life is the perfect training ground for daily practice. #4 The Stoics believed that nature wants us to become that highest version of ourselves. To become good with your inner daimon, to live in harmony with your ideal self, and to express your highest version of yourself in every moment, is to get as close as possible to that high potential self.
Here Kevin Kimbrough joins Bob Sjogren in his crusade against me-centered, feline thinking--this time applying it to our view of the cross. What would change, the authors ask, if we began to see Christ's death as more than a fix for our personal sins, but as a matter of the Master's glory?

Life in general is comprised of a series of ups and downs. What life has thought me over the years is that whether one is experiencing either the upside or the downside of life, it is never permanent. Everything that we are faced with in this journey of life is just a season, and seasons have an expiry date. Nothing is permanent on this side of eternity, no matter how painful or how pleasant the season is I have learned that it passes. So, no matter what you are going through at the moment it shall come to pass in due season. But when the season pass you shall remain standing, especially if your life is anchored on a sure foundation of HOPE. As I typed this devotional day after day, the Lord impressed one thought on my mind, “You can Bounce Back” from any season. Never doubt the power of bouncing back. Resilience is in your DNA, you have been created to overcome and survive everything that life throws at you. In this Daily Devotional I pray that you find inspiration to Bounce Back from whatever life throws at you. Whether you choose to make it a morning or evening devotional I hope you are inspired. The Bounce back Daily Devotional will infuse your day or evening with a dose of inspiration.
