I don't usually review nonfiction books, but this book by Tricia Goyer (see pic, top right) makes me want to spread the word.
What a great book for teens and young adults! I wish I’d read this book about 20 years ago. It’s so hard being a Christian young person in today’s society, being bombarded with peer pressure, media pressure, even parental pressure. This book will help those in their teens and early twenties figure out how to deal with the bad influences and actually take control of their lives and live them according to God’s plan.
My Life, Unscripted gives practical tips on how to mold your thinking, and ultimately your actions, in the direction you want to go. Tricia gives lots of Bible verses about how to live wisely in a crooked and (very) depraved generation. This book will help you steer around the dangers and mistakes that are so prevalent in the teen years.
I highly recommend this book to all youth workers, teens, and young adults. It is packed with real-life scenarios, as well as activities, that will get teens to think about their own thought patterns and the possibility that they might be headed for trouble. It will show them how to plan ahead for situations that may arise in which they will need to make a well-thought-out decision. It’s all about making wise choices and decisions. In the back of the book, youth leaders will find discussion questions perfect for small groups.
This book is a real god-send.
