Had some time this morning, so I recorded why I wrote, "A Life Intercepted." Where it came from, etc. Enjoy. Please share.

Can't believe it took me so long to listen to this. Love your heart and can't wait to read the book. Thanks for sharing.
wrote this on my facebook page today:" I am a reader...and if you know me very well, you know who my favorite author is. Charles Martin has written 10 books, I've read them all, and loved every one of them (except one...it was just okay. I won't tell you which one.) When his most recent book "A LIfe Intercepted" came out, and I read that it was a story about football, my heart sank. I admit it...I don't like football (I know, I'm in the minority), and I didn't think I could read a book about it, even if it was written by Charles Martin. But, because I've read his other books, I knew there was probably a greater story there, and I wanted to read that one. I just finished it, and I have to tell you...this is his best book yet. If you are a football fan, you are going to love it. If you aren't a fan, you are going to come away from this book with a respect for the game, and an even greater respect for the author." Thank you Charles for sharing your gift with us.
My Kindle Reader app on my computer tells me that I'm only 27% into the book, but once again, I'm hooked. Can't wait to finish it and yet I also want to savor it. :-)
lOOKS COOL TO ME:)
Thank you for this! Sharing it with my family...and fellow-football-fantasy-friends!
WOW!!! You are an awesome Dad! I love you guys and I can't wait to add to my Charles Martin collection!
Wow! As a football fanatic female, I cannot wait to read this one! Thanks, Charles, for your transparency of heart to speak truth to your readers, all for the glory of Jesus Christ. I'm going to get this book this week! Can't wait to share your video. Powerful!
Oh wow! THANKS FOR THIS! Can't wait to read it! Am wondering why Amazon is not showing this for pre-order. Can you tell me?
I am not sure I have words to say that could share how I'm feeling after watching this video. I am in awe of your transparency, your ability to recognize yourself, rise above yourself, accept that God is bigger than all of our combined failures and achievements, and have the courage to put all of that into beautiful words. Thank you for giving of yourself every time you write a book.
Having a hard time pre-ordering the book. Amazon has only an audio version due out in September and paperback not until spring 2015... no hardback available yet. Any suggestions?
This article came today, which was an oddly free day, free from me running my four kids to every summer activity imaginable. So, I actually had time today to read all my emails and click on this blog….as I watched I thought…"My son needs to hear this…" So I pulled him aside and said watch this… and he remembers ...."Oh this is the 'We are well able' guy??" You see earlier this spring Luke had an assignment to give a presentation to his class on his favorite bible character. He had chosen Joshua and he came to me for inspiration…. I referred him to your post about Joshua and Caleb. Luke is 12 years old and is a lover of books (Rick Riodan has been his favorite for a while) but you hooked him with your First Charles Translations…. after digesting your blog he presented confidently to his class why he loves Joshua. But today football was the topic he needed perspective on….and this post was the perfect precursor to a genuine, no rush, sit-down talk with my sweet son. I feel that now he is better prepared to go confidently into football season knowing that "the heart of football is found in the huddle, not the highlight reel" Thanks Charles for dropping this gem into our lives on this lazy summer day.
Very profound - - but more importantly..... very true!
