Adversity knows no prejudice…Everyone gets fouled in the game of life. Grounded with this observation, Vera presents the life-changing concept of Play Through the Foul. This is NOT a basketball book merely for sports enthusiasts. It is a LIFE book for people who are enthusiastic about living their best life possible. Whether you are pursuing growth personally or professionally, this is a must read guaranteed to make you laugh a little, cry a little and be empowered to live a lot! Vera creatively weaves a collection of true stories into eight coaching concepts that will help you develop the winner’s mindset to overcome setbacks and challenges to achieve the success you most desire:


• Know It’s A Contact Sport
• Get In Shape, Stay In Shape
• Be Coachable
• Handle the Ball
• Make the Assist
• Rebound Relentlessly
• Passionately Play Your Position
• Defend Your Goal


“I’ve had my fair share of adversity and challenges, so I get it - there is nothing fun about being fouled! But there is something very rewarding in playing through the foul and overcoming your obstacles. I liken it to scoring the extra free throw that wins the game! My ultimate goal is to fulfill my purpose of being an encourager and a motivator. So I commit myself through my speaking, through my writing and through humor and good works to assist others to focus on their goals and Play Through the Foul to win. In accomplishing this, I win too! ~ Vera Jones
