Game On: The Christian Parents’ Sports Survival Guide

A Game Plan for Parents

For years I couldn’t escape the anxiety that came with my children’s sports. The competitive atmosphere prevalent among parents often left me anxious, upset—even bitter. But all that changed when I defined why I wanted my kids playing. Instead of fretting about their performance, I saw opportunities for them to grow. Now I enjoy watching them play without letting politics, other parents, or my own unrealistic expectations get in the way.
Join me in exploring the realities of sports, the reasons parents get caught up in unhealthy competition, and strategies to keep the big picture in mind when we’re too close to the game. We can be composed and confident while our kids are in sports.

Returning home, Lauren wants no part of her old profession. She only wants to forget the unspeakable tragedy she left behind. She can’t take responsibility for another child.

What Reviewers Are Saying


“This book contained a depth that I don’t usually find in a Love Inspired book. I found the characters in this novel so well developed and matched that I couldn’t put the book down.” ~ 100 Pages Per Hour Blog

“This book is easily a 5 star rating in my personal opinion because it shows that with love, encouragement and faith that anything that seems impossible is actually possible with God, family and friends.” ~Random Times with the Traveling Gypsy Blog

“The author did a fabulous job of not only letting her characters struggle but what it looks like taking all those tiny determined steps and coming out the other side. Even if the other side isn’t puppy dogs and rainbows every day.
Yuletide Redemption is filled with . . . life. But it is also filled with hope and what it can look like when we fix our eyes upon Jesus.” ~ Sing Over Me Blog


“Kemerer educates the reader about nature and provides a number of sound strategies to deal with fears and anxieties, including giving those fears over to God. Her characters are flawed, which makes them very relatable and engaging.” ~ RT Book Review 4 stars

“Kemerer writes stories of hope and redemption. Her characters have great personalities and are lovable from the start. She’s great about adding little windows into their background without overloading the reader. You’ll find yourself rooting for these two.
Bryan is adorable–a sigh worthy hero. And Jade is a light that brightens the story. Throw in the rest of the Sheffield family, and this is one sweet, clean, lovable romance you won’t want to miss.” ~ Amazon review


“Beautiful descriptions abound in Kemerer’s latest. The Sheffield family seemingly has it all (faith, love, money), but demonstrates that nobody has a perfect life free of struggles.” ~ RT Book Reviews 4 Stars


Small-Town Bachelor by Jill Kemerer is the first book of hers for Love Inspired and frankly I hope it is not the last for Ms. Kemerer.  She drew this reader into the story from the get go and had me laughing at several different points. Then there is her unique way of describing things.

Frankly I rarely ever quote from a book and when I do it is usually only one quote, but this book has three memorable and I have to quote them for they were so different and priceless when I read them.” ~ A Christian Bookworm Review
