    I've admired Clayton Kershaw as a baseball player as well as for his humanitarian work This book was a uick read giving insight into how he and his wife live out their faith That being said I enjoyed Clayton's chapters much than Ellen's Ellen's writing seems very sincere but not of much substance It's almost as though she has a word count uota to fulfill with how many times she can include Lord God and Jesus in each paragraph She is very fervent and this book was written when she was uite young; I wonder if with life experience she might have brought a little content to her writing In addition the other thing that bothered me about this book was the tendency to use Africa and Zambia interchangeably

    I’m not a big baseball fan and honestly haven’t heard of Clayton Kershaw When I first received this book by looking at the cover I thought it was about them adopting children from another country Little did I know that it was a story of faith hope love and fulfilling Christ’s calling on your lifeClayton is starting pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers and loves baseball but he loves Christ even Ellen has a love for Africa and for Christ even During her college years Ellen spent time in Zambia at a orphanage All she wanted was to help these children After they were married they took a trip to Zambia and there Clayton got to see how much this meant to herAfter they returned Kershaw’s challenge was born For every batter Clayton struck out they would donate a 100 to make life better for the orphanage I highly recommend this book to all college kids adults young adults and athletes and to those who love helping orphanages no matter where they are You definitely will not be disappointedThank You to Regal for providing me a copy of this book for my honest review

    This book wasn't terribly thorough or deeply insightful into the life and career of Clayton Kershaw but it succeeds at being a very solid easily readable evangelistic tool probably geared towards high school aged kids I enjoyed it for what it was and can't really knock it too much seeing as I happen to agree with the Kershaws on many of their points and share their faith I walk away from reading it challenged and encouraged by their stand for the Lord and with an even higher opinion of the couple than I previously held But it does bear pointing out strictly from a reading comprehension level point of view that this book doesn't really go or read that deep That's not bad but it's just what it is

    A great book Would recommend this for any youth or youth minister to use as a Bible study discussion Living in Zambia their accounts and perceptions of Zambia are very accurate Great to have people like this as role models for our kids They love Jesus it is obvious
