The Christian Athlete Playbook equips the athlete for success in position and kingdom purpose by:
• Providing 20 Proven Life Lessons, meditation scriptures, “transparent” personal testimony and prayer confessions that will result in spiritual transformation and maturity.
• Utilizing Application Drills to assist the athlete with becoming a “doer” and not just a hearer of the Word of God.
• Equipping the athlete with Scouting Reports, Offensive and Defensive Strategies on how to defeat the opponent.
“Whether you are a Christian athlete or an athlete in general, time is a valuable commodity. As athletes, we often find time for everything and everyone, but little time for God. This Playbook is not a substitute for the Word of God or Book of Life (Bible), but it is a valuable tool to help you stay close to the Word and assist in your study of the Word. It covers all the strategic blows the enemy uses against us as Christians, young and old.”

“The personal stories that were shared were inspiring and encouraging! After leaving the event on Friday night, I felt empowered and ready to take on any obstacle. “It was like a personal mini coaching session.” The young girls who were present seemed engaged and I am confident that many of them took away some great information that will be very helpful in their future endeavors. Thank you for all you do! My daughter Anna wrote: “I really liked the speaker Gail Perry-Mason; I thought her story was funny and inspiring.”

The 2014 Sustainable U Institute conference was powerful and life changing! The breakout sessions provided powerful, practical information I can use to increase my success in achieving my personal goals and in my career. I am in great expectation for next years’ conference. Great speakers, well organized, and great content for women and teenagers.

“Norma, Thank you again for asking me to be one of your guest speakers. This was a phenomenal event! You executed every detail with such professionalism and care- and it paid off, as I enjoyed hearing such wonderful feedback from the attendees throughout the day. I particularly appreciated being able to sit in on some sessions myself – and came away with a wealth of knowledge and wisdom. Wishing you even greater success as you continue on!”
“This was an amazing event lead by Norma and her team. I was honored to be included as one of the CEO speakers. Thank you and I look forward to future transform-4-life.org event!”
“When I went to the Sustainable U program, I received a lot of information. I received information such as how to budget my money and how to make more money all in one setting. I talked to women that made very high achievements in their lives. I learned that we are all Queens, no matter the skin color, height, weight or size. No matter how much we may smile, laugh, and gossip, most of us have all been through the same things and may have had the same experiences. I learned how to get a bank account and how to manage the money in it. I learned the difference between credit and debit. I also learned that once you put your cellphone number, school or other personal information on any social media website, you might be at high risk for identity theft. When you to go to stores and go to the ATM machine and it looks like part of the ATM is hanging off, then that might be a sign that the ATM has something on it that collects your PIN number, which is another sign of identity theft. I learned that I could be very independent, event as a young girl. I would love to go to another one.”

“The group I went to was very funny. I learned about how things affect our lives. I also learned about the girl’s lives and their struggles they faced went on. I learned how we need to respect ourselves by putting on our crown and not throwing it on the ground. Basically, have respect for yourself because you want to respect your self-image.
I learned how to budget money and how to make money a lot without spending it all in one day. I also learned how we as girls’ look at ourselves. When we feel like a nobody. I thought the
Group was fantastic, and I would like to share my comments with everyone who needs to know my feedback. I liked that the ladies was very motivational about the things that were talking about. I loved everything and I hope that I can do this stuff again. If the ladies could get this I would tell them than you for everything, the program was great. “

“Shauna and I both enjoyed the sessions. Shauna particularly liked the Saturday session, since Friday night, there were not a lot of her age group girls there and she was some what not clear if what she is there for.
On Saturday, she went thinking just because I told her she had to go but ended up having really good time. She liked the sessions she was in, from one session she has a frame with BE confidence, strong etc. and she has it on her desk since last week when she started high school. The fact she brings her experience up from time to time is a indicator she got something out of those sessions.
I really enjoyed the key note speakers from Friday night.
On Saturday, I thought the session on estate planning by Melissa El was very informative. Shauna William’s mentoring session was good. I think the small group environment ,friendly presenters and just upbeat mood of the sessions made it enjoyable.
Yes I would like to hear more about your events and let me know if I can help in anyway.”
