New Book Shares That With God as the Author of our Stories, Our Insecurities, Weaknesses, and Disappointments Will Not Get the Last Word

He can use them to strengthen us while instilling discipline and determination in our lives that will help us reach our full potential


MAITLAND, FL—Robin Matz’s new book Lovely & Fierce ($15.49, paperback 9781498485746; $7.99, eBook,         9781498485753) encourages women to get to know and celebrate the unique story God is writing with their life. Matz hopes this book unites women of all backgrounds and ages under the truth that we all have a lovely and fierce athlete in us; a desire to gracefully keep fighting, keep making progress, and live victoriously. Readers will know they are not alone in their daily battles and gain confidence to embrace their lovely and fierce life story as part of their unique brand. Then they will feel empowered to share that brand with the world.


Matz says, “As a coach, I have read at least a bookshelf of books about life lessons learned from sports written from a male perspective. Lovely & Fierce fills a unique spot on the bookshelf in that it covers many of the same sports and similar experiences through my eyes as a little girl, then a teenager and now a woman. This book gives strong, competitive, relentless readers the freedom to be vulnerable again knowing that during the ugly and the beautiful moments, they have always been loved and they have never been alone.”


Robin Matz has been observing the female athlete since she was a little girl and competing as an athlete or coach for over 25 years. She played high school tennis, volleyball and basketball. Robin has coached girls on tennis, volleyball, basketball and cross-country teams. She is licensed to be a school counselor and worked as a guidance counselor for three years. Robin is a girl, just like you, desiring to be both lovely and fierce while living victoriously.
