In a recently released inspirational book designed to help people overcome personal tribulations and sorrows in life, former NFL quarterback Jeff Kemp asserts that people need to rejoice in their trials, pains, sufferings and griefs because they serve as opportunities to "run to Jesus" and "experience more of his love."
Kemp explains in his book, Facing The Blitz, which was released in March, that when life's "blitzes" hit, it is important that victims and sufferers not feel sorry for themselves. He said they should seek the comfort of God in order to change and mold them into better human beings that can then use their trying experiences to impact the lives of others.
The 55-year-old Kemp spent most of his 11-year NFL career as a backup quarterback waiting for an opportunity to prove that he could become a reliable and consistent starting quarterback at football's highest level. more >>
