“Something fun and unique about this book is not only did the author interview the athletes but their wives; it is fun to see the other side of things and their perspectives and how they work together to support each other…”

“The analogy that Richardson makes here about the young people of the LDS Church being ‘warriors’ is an apt one…”

“As my children are getting older, I’m on the lookout for books that will inspire and motivate them. Brock Richardson is a seminary teacher and former BYU football player who is on a quest to help youth find the warrior within…”

“Every mother gazes down into her new baby’s eyes and wonders what their lives will be like, who they will grow up to be, and makes plans for brilliant futures. When I held each of my children for the first time, I was overwhelmed with…a sense of the strength they each carried within them. These were warriors sent into my home to continue the fight they began in the premortal realm – a fight against the lies of Satan…”

“This book will inspire you to be better, to have more faith in Jesus Christ, and to dig deeper in your effort to serve Him. Brock captures the essence of faith when he shares his own stories of finding the strength to follow the Savior. Brock is a warrior who humbly invites us along to reconnect with our Father in Heaven and to stand firm and steadfast in our dedication to His son Jesus Christ.”

This young man never ceases to amaze me. He took what little I taught him in the gym about football, lifting and my life philosophies, took them to heart and made himself the best athlete and sportsman he could be.  Outside of sports, Brock has used the same undying love and hard work towards his family and faith.  I am so very proud to call this young man my friend and brother.  He has taught me more about belief and being a good man than I have ever taught him about sports and competition.  Brock and the Richardson family have overcome some staggering losses since I have known them; not once did their devotion to their faith waver.  They are what I believe the LDS faith is all about: pure love, pure family, pure faith.  This book is invigorating and will give you an undying warrior’s spirit towards your faith.

Brock Richardson’s “Latter-day Warriors” is a powerful description of the way some champion athletes have not only excelled in the arena of sports, but are champions in dealing with the toughest challenges of life. I strongly recommend this book to both young and adult readers who want to win in the battle of life.

A valuable read for youth! Channeling feelings correctly, taking a stand, prioritizing life through the lens of the gospel, summoning courage, faith and testimony – all of these subjects and more are eloquently addressed by Brock Richardson, an up-and-coming LDS author and seminary teacher. Someone who knows!”
