I would recomend this book to those who are searching for God and those who are already in touch with him spiritually and emotionally. It has real letters from kids just like you who are playing this game called lfe. If you like music and listen to Michael W. Smith's music you can find the real maning of the songs as he goes step by step relating life to his song! It tells you about kids who have attempted suicide, have been involved with drug, and those who are being pushed to go farther than they want to with a boyfriend or girlfriend. These are all sins and you are faced with peer pressure everyday at school, parties and after school events. If you are struggling or just need advice on Friends, Family, Relationships, choices and Temptations coming from saitin then you should look to this book to find God to help you through them!

Michael Helps Youth With Issues.
Michael W. Smith helps Christian teenagers cope with the various pressures and issues that accompany growing up in a faithful Christian manner. He also tries to help the reader effectively deal with past mistakes and current problems according to God's word in the Bible. No matter what the topic: drugs, alcohol, peer pressure, abuse, premarital sex, suicide, depression, etc., Michael offers hope and encouragement to the reader, assuring them of his belief in them, but most importantly, of God's belief in them. In discussing these issues, Michael refers to many accounts of adolescent struggles in letters that he has received from some of his young fans. Although he stresses that he is not a psychologist or psychiatrist, he offers advice, based upon his own experience of growing up, and what he has learned from it. But most importantly, the advice that he offers is based upon what God says about these things, and how God wants us to deal with the issues in our lives. Thus, Michael encourages the reader to never give up, and to always remember that God truly and deeply loves them. I highly recommend this and all of Michael's other books, especially: This is Your Time, Your Place in this World: Discovering God¿s Will for the Life in Front of You, Friends Are Friends Forever, and Old Enough to Know.Was this review helpful?
