Love + Football – Offseason Reading Review
“Love + Football: How To Play On The Same Team With Your SpouseÂ by Shon & Londina Hyneman”
Make your relationship XXXâ€™s & OOOâ€™s count, this #NFLDRAFT2015 season, and for many to come, with the strategies offered up by this FAITH focused Football Couple!Â As the NFL season is fast approaching with #Draft2015 just days away, the couple who plays together, stays together!
My days growing up were filled with sports year round. My parents were on the same page when it came to this like mindedness, so my outlook was. This â€œhealthy addictionâ€ I have to sports, is a plus!Â As I got older and looked around, I heard males and females alike, grousing about the otherâ€™s â€œunhealthy obsession with their teamâ€ as the NFL season approached.
Love + Football: How To Play On The Same Team With Your SpouseÂ by Shon & Londina Hyneman, caught my attention this past January, as part of my offseason football reading.Â No better time to let you know Shon Hyneman will be a guest, as will I, on “The Zone Blitz” webcastÂ Tuesday, April 28th, with our NFLFemale co-host, Sonja Greenfield – Official Fan Reporter for the Detroit Lions/NFLFemale and writer for @AGoodSportsHang.

Personally, I found the football analogies to be spot on and they frequently gave me pause to laugh out loud, at the obvious!Â Click on this linkÂ to go to Pinterest to find out a bit more about “hiding injuries from a potential team and spouseâ€, when seeking out a good team and strong relationship. The e-book is available for purchase on neveragainministries.com. Â Â
Recently, I was given the opportunity, following my reading of the e-book, co-authored by Shon Hyneman, with Londina Hyneman, to speak with Shon, co-host of â€œThe Doctor of Loveâ€ found onÂ neveragainministries.com
Kelli:Â Shon, where did this labor of love come from?
Shon:Â Kelli, my dream was to be an announcer, to sit in the booth and do play by play. I would dissect all of the football games, wanting more knowledge and a better understanding of the â€œLanguage of Footballâ€.Â As a teen, beginning to date, an â€œepiphanyâ€ took place and I made the connection that became the foundation for â€œLove + Football: How to Play On the Same Team With Your Spouseâ€.
Kelli:Â Please elaborate, with some of the examples from the e-book.
Shon:Â Here are a few; The “Draftâ€ reminded me of single people who desire to marry and how they go about making their decisions to choose their helpmate.Â Respecting your personal franchise, a person must choose carefully based upon critical factors much like the NFL Draft. Every NFL franchise has a playbook, and it contains the strategies to win. Every person is seeking strategies to win in their choice of their life partner, with the desired result being a successful relationship. The words â€œperfect parallelâ€ came to mind. Â As a faith based man and wife, Londina and I find â€œThe Bibleâ€, is our franchise playbook. We discuss on our show, â€œThe Doctor of Loveâ€ found on neveragainministries.com, and in the e-book, through a variety of football analogies, the discovering and navigation of relationships, through proven strategies found in our playbook, â€œThe Bibleâ€.
Kelli:Â Shon, for those that are getting ready for their personal â€œDraftâ€, as we as football enthusiasts ready for #NFLDraft2015, utilizing â€œThe Bibleâ€, as the playbook, what nuggets do you wish to share?
Shon:Â A couple of winning strategies:
- Study and know your playbook – â€œThe Bibleâ€
- God 1st in marriage
- Teamwork – be a helpmate
- Commitment – life is full of both winning and losing seasons
- Press on through â€œlosing seasonsâ€
- Love can change people
- Soften a hard heart
- Donâ€™t be quick to â€œdemand a tradeâ€
- Exercise your patience
Kelli:Â Thank you, Shon, I can definitely see the analogies you speak of when it comes to carefully selecting a #1 Draft Pick (LOL) and pressing on through â€œlosing seasonsâ€. I want a lifetime of Super Bowl victories, as I am sure our readers do, as well.â€
In a world where so many are seeking their own relationship â€œSuper Bowlâ€,Â Shon and Londina Hyneman, in Love + Football: How to Play On the Same Team With Your SpouseÂ offerÂ their playbook – â€œThe Bibleâ€.Â Husband and wife for over 13 years, mentors, author of 5 books and founder of neveragainministries.com, which prepares singles for marriage.
