The Book

FacingtheBlitzbyJeffKempIn football, a blitz is an all-out attack. Defenses use them to force the quarterback into a mistake and create mayhem and destruction. But by its nature the blitz also creates an opportunity for the quarterback and his team, as it leaves holes in the defense. What looks like the worst play can become the best.

During a life “blitz,” when everything seems like it’s collapsing–financially, relationally, spiritually, or physically–if you take initiative you can do more than just survive. You can grow, succeed, and advance. In Facing the Blitz, Jeff Kemp shares lessons he’s learned through all kinds of life blitzes, both personal and professional. Discover how life is about transformation and being others-oriented; having the right mind-set can turn unnecessary fear and misery into courage and joy.

No matter who you are–men, women, sports fans, business leaders, etc.–this book is about the things that matter in your life. Don’t end up flat on your back when trouble comes. Learn to seize opportunities to flourish and grow.
