Publisher's Summary

In his first ever book, The IF in Life: How to Get Off Life’s Sidelines and Become Your Best Self, NFL running back and Dancing with the Stars champion Rashad Jennings shares his inspiring story and experiences, imparts practical advice, and encourages listeners to follow their dreams.

As a kid, Rashad Jennings dreamed of one day playing in the NFL, but the odds were stacked against him - he was an overweight kid with glasses, asthma, and a 0.6 GPA. Today, Rashad is a record-setting running back who has played with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Oakland Raiders, and the New York Giants.

In The IF in Life, Rashad writes about the decisions that shaped his life. From overcoming injuries and setbacks to reaching goals and everything in between, Rashad’s transparency about his journey will encourage listeners to hold on to faith in the midst of uncertainty and win big in life.

Favorite book by far!

This is a book that brings meaning and purpose. I love the way it moves me and I’ve always been inspired by Rashad. A Godly man with words of encouragement for everyone no matter where we are at in life is why this book is so incredible.

Captivating!

WOW! I knew this would be a good book based on the little I know about Rashad Jennings, but I was not expecting that! I wasn't expecting to be encouraged and empowered from him and through his life, challenges, triumphs and testimonies. I was expecting him to be bold in his faith and not afraid to give God all the glory! I felt like I was watching his life unfold on screen while listening to the audible book. Each moment and story drew me in...eating m&m's and drinking sprite sitting on the bench as a youth, the first scary asthma attack, tying the shirt around his nose and mouth to protect himself from the smoke and boldly address his dad, the prophesy about the NFL, his mother always being so sweet and supportive, being injured the day before trying out with the Raiders...I could go on and on! To say Rashad Jennings is an amazing person is such an understatement...Looking forward to all the life changing and impactful things I know he will accomplish...

Inspiring and thought-provoking...

Inspired by this book and all its underlying themes. I love how Rashad lets readers know they too can live their dreams and gives his blueprint for how he has achieved his own and continues to do so. It cannot help but stir you once you learn how he has overcome incredible challenges by taking personal responsibility and making things happen in an age where making excuses and entitlement are commonplace. This book is for anyone who wants to live the life for which they were created. Kudos for exemplifying humility and giving God the glory! 1 Corinthians 2:9.
Big Respect.

Special

I don’t always take the time out to write a review. I also wasn’t expecting to love it as much as I did and do, but this book spoke to my heart, blessed me with perspective, and lit a fire in me to take a step back and reevaluate the place and space that I’m in. It truly was a confirmation to thoughts, feelings, and experiences that I have left lingering. Beautiful in tone, message, and expression. Thank you Rashad
