There's another book that I read this summer that I feel compelled to tell others about: That's Why I'm Here: The Chris and Stefanie Spielman Story.
Mitch recommended we get this book; something he caught on espn.com with some substance. We read it together (with simultaneous book marks not literally together aloud). It was a good combination of football for Mitch and a beautiful love story for me. Stefanie is such an example of strength, hope, determination, and above all faith. Chris, while incredibly dedicated to football, was able to learn through Stefanie what the important things in life really are. It was definitely sad as Stefanie eventually lost her battle, but the inspiring moments made the sad worthwhile. I am amazed by the courage it took to write this book. Chris shares openly about the best and worst of times and how their family was able to handle it all with faith. One of my favorite parts was the forward written by their daughter Madison--such beautiful words. I'd highly recommend everyone checks out this inspirational story!
