National Women’s footballer Mariah Shade will launch a new career away from the field of sport next weekend.

The former France-based player who now lines up for Petrotrin in the Women’s League, has written a book which is geared towards helping young people achieve success in their personal relationship with GOD and to encourage them to stand strong in their faith in a time where many are falling away. “There is still hope because Jesus is alive,” she said.

“I always say, football is one aspect of my life, but it is not my life. I am a young woman after God’s own heart and my love for God is a passion that football can never compete with,” she added.

“The book, titled Tunnel Vision: A Set Apart Life, was born about one year ago, coming out of a place of real concern for young people especially young Christians,” she added.

The official launch takes place on August 5, at 3pm, at the Trinidad and Tobago Bureau of Standards, (Opposite the Center of Excellence, Macoya.) The book will also be available on Amazon, both Paperback and Kindle, on the publisher’s website (Trinity Hills Publishing) and on Barnes and Noble’s Online Store.
