ISBN 978-1940269634

Tim Hiller was in the throes of NFL training camp striving for a prized spot on the Indianapolis Colts' roster, when six words abruptly changed his course: "We have to let you go."

Like Tim, we are all striving for something every minute of the day, everyday-career aspirations, social status, better parenting, friendship, love, fame, financial security, achievement, and more. In most cases, these are noble and understandable pursuits. Our time is short. Our lives are busy. We want these things now. But do they even matter? Our careers will end, our friends and family will all pass someday, and our finances can't leave this world with us. Someone will reject us. Ultimately, the world will forget our accomplishments. But what if we instead strive for the best thing possible-both in this life, and the eternal one to come?

In Strive, former collegiate and NFL quarterback Tim Hiller leads you on a year-long journey, taking small steps each week on the path to making your life matter… to developing more and more into the person God designed you to be. Hiller provides daily encouragement, challenges, and resources-straight from God's word-to help each of us Strive toward a life of significance. Our lives are short. Together, let's pursue what matters.
