"Make your mistakes full speed." "Always fall forward." "There are worse things than dying." Todd Gerelds, author of the bestselling book and hit movie Woodlawn, believes the most meaningful life lessons he has learned have been on the playing field. The voice of his coach rings in his head when life gets tough or when his day becomes off-kilter. It just happens that his coach's voice is also his father's. His dad was Tandy "The Coach" Gerelds, the subject of Woodlawn and the man who led his team to victory in the racially charged atmosphere of 1970s Alabama. The Coach led his team both on and off the field, always speaking wisdom wherever he went. For him, leading his team wasn't a responsibility he took lightly. After all, the Coach wasn't just training these boys to be good football players?he was helping them build the foundation to becoming good men. In Always Fall Forward, join the Coach's son, Todd Gerelds, as he reflects on fifty-two of his dad's most formative "coachisms." From "Your stance is critical" to "One play at a time," you, too, will start hearing the strong and encouraging voice of the Coach when life hits you hard. Packed with life application, Always Fall Forward challenges men each week to live the way the Coach lived?grounded in faith and willing to stand up for what he believed?no matter the cost. You won't want to forget these lessons?both on and off the field.

"Todd Gerelds continues his journey to honor his father, the legendary Alabama high school football coach Tandy Gerelds. First in a book, then in a movie, and now in this devotional, the theme is looking to God while being centered on football. Though the author narrates with passion and care, he cannot escape the difficulty of presenting a 52-week devotional as an audiobook to be enjoyed as the listener multitasks. The value of this resource is in its content, and even though the delivery of it is done well, the inescapable truth for this reviewer is that the audiobook loses much of that value due to the limitations of the medium.
