CLEVELAND, OHIO (February 24, 2020) – The highly anticipated first literary effort by Reggie Hodges, known to the world as the multi-faceted thought leader with a broad range of life experience and spiritual wisdom, who was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in the 2005 NFL Draft is set to be released in 2020.
The news was announced today by Ardre Orie, CEO of 13th & Joan Publishing House, which acquired world publishing rights to the book. Titled THRIVE, Reggie Hodge’s book will be released in the U.S. and Canada in print and digital formats by 13th & Joan Publishing House.
Reggie’s 8 year NFL career took him on a purposeful journey across the country, finally landing him in Cleveland Ohio. In addition to strong performances on the field that would earn him an NFL record, his efforts off the field were just as important. He served as a mentor and spiritual leader in the locker room. The goal was to assist fellow players in their efforts to develop their spiritual, emotional, and mental health skills along the way. Now, as a successful entrepreneur, the mission has not changed. “Love Well, Serve Well,” in every area of life. Reggie uses his gift as a communicator, offering motivation, guidance, and inspiration to athletic teams, churches, and businesses in the principles of spiritual, character, and career development.
Reggie, his wife Arin, and three kids are on this mission together. The Hodges are committed to being an example of what a family can accomplish together. His role as husband and father drives him daily to learn and grow.
THRIVE reveals a candid yet reflective account of the trials and tribulations that athletes often face amidst their journey to compete and construct their lives. Hodges’s body of work is honest and indisputably resolves that there can be no balance in the absence of spiritual salvation.
Said Hodges, “It has been my honor to serve as a leader and athlete on the field, and it is now my honor to serve as a leader and spiritual encouragement off the field“. THRIVE is the book that I wished I had the honor of reading throughout my career. It is imperative that athletes have every tool possible to feed their souls while pouring out so much of themselves in their careers. Thrive is about manifesting maximum results in every aspect of life.
At the time of publication, Hodges will embark on a U.S. book tour, with details to be announced at a later date. Information about the book is available to consumers at www.13thandjoan.com.
