Life Resource Center

JUST IN TIME FOR GRADUATION! This is the Day by Tim Tebow

“It’s never too late. You’re not too young. You’re not too old. You can have purpose not only in your life but also in this day. There is always something you can do right now to improve yourself, to make an impact on someone or something else, or to create or enjoy a meaningful moment.”—Tim Tebow

The perfect gift for the grad or anyone, for that matter–someone just starting out, who has their whole life ahead of them, or someone who maybe feels a little stuck and needs a little push to view life a little differently. Tebow, using personal stories and biblical principles, invites you to “Reclaim your dream, ignite your passion, and live your purpose.” Anyone will enjoy this easy and motivating book! Don’t forget to stop by the LRC for all things graduation: cards, gifts, and more!
