Before getting to this week’s Top 10 list, if you are not familiar with the name Jason Romano, you should be.  For 17 years, Jason was a Senior Manager and Producer at ESPN. He created and produced content for shows such as SportsCenter, Monday Night Football, Mike and Mike in the Morning, Sunday NFL Countdown, College Gameday, MLB’s All Star Game.

Jason is now the host and producer of the Sports Spectrum podcast where he interviews A-list athletes, coaches, and other personalities on the intersection of sports and faith.  It is one of go-to resources I listen to every week.  The podcast is incredibly helpful and inspirational.  Click HERE to listen.

Jason is releasing a new book on January 15th but you can pre-order to receive by Christmas.  I can’t recommend enough everyone gets this book.  In “Live to Forgive”, he walks readers through his personal journey of forgiving his alcoholic father. Through sharing his own story, Romano invites readers to enter into their own messy journeys of forgiveness—to fully feel their pain, evaluate their pain, transform their pain, and ultimately forgive those who caused their pain. The only route to freedom and peace is forgiveness.  This is a MUST-READ!!!  Click HERE or on the image provided to get your copy.
