Fueled by faith and powered by a strong work ethic, Tyler Lockett’s debut book of poetry is a reflective and uplifting journey through topics such as identity, sports, race, relationships, and how to live a purposeful life.
As an NFL All-Pro wide receiver and return specialist for the Seattle Seahawks, Lockett draws on his unique perspective as a professional athlete to address life’s many challenges, temptations, and rewards. From reminding young people to pursue their dreams, to pleading with a friend not to take his own life, Lockett’s poetry encourages readers to stay positive even when confronting impossible odds.
In addition to never-before-published poems, Reflection also includes workshop questions, notes, and inspirational messages that give readers an opportunity to reflect on their own lives as well.
Tyler Lockett does an amazing job of expressing himself eloquently through poetry, using his own life experiences as fodder for reflection, encouragement, and direction. He focuses on what he knows best and does an incredible job on shedding light into life situations, while offering advice and support to others along the way. – Ubermomma
Tyler went above and beyond with this one! I had been anticipating this book for a month or so before he released it and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it wasn’t just a poetry book, but a workbook as well. That added another layer of substance to this already powerful book! Tyler poured out his thoughts and shared his heart in this book, and it has completely inspired me to be unashamed of Christ, to own my individuality and to make reflecting a daily part of my life. I cannot wait until he releases more materials, he’s an awesome writer. You won’t be ashamed if you make this purchase! – Wryan King
I like this book because it highlights the power of the reflection. I used to like to write when I was younger and I stopped as life continued to get busier. Reading this book helped me reflect on my purpose and my relationship with the universe. It is simple yet powerful. We live our lives as we perceive them. You live a blessed life if you count your blessings everyday. You live a tragic life if all you can focus on are the things you don’t have. This book is a great reminder to reset your mindset to live the life you want to live. – msg53014
