This is a Good Book to Keep
Well I got another book and have been reading it the last two days. The book I read was called Thriving At College by Alex Chediak it is a good book. The book is 317 pages long with two appendixes. It is a book about the best ways to survive college life with God in it. It addresses so much more than just how to pick your major or school (but it gives you help with that to). There are real life issues like dating life, friends, the stress of college and going home to parents after living with out them. In dating life there are common mistakes written to help you with priority and expectations. It addresses how with God you need to focus on more than just being in that relationship. It helps you with giving you scriptures to address relationship issues and other stress that come with college. In the book Alex Chediak has testimonies, factoids and references to other books that may help. In one chapter for instance it points out to limit your time online and in another chapter it points out that researchers have found that Face Book use goes hand in hand with lower GPS. I really liked this book and will be sending it to my step daughter. I sure wished I had this book when I was in school. I have to say there is so much more stress now days that I loved that God was addressed so much in this book. I even learned from some of the scriptures even though I am not in a college situation. It is good for both parents and college aged adults to read. This is a book that should be kept to use later for reference. I think in fact if I was in college I can go to chapters and read for my needs over and over and maybe even can be read out of order. I have to say that I have to let you know I have a DISCLAIMER I need to tell you about. I received this book free from the publisher through the Tyndale book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

This would make a good gift for a high school student before graduation.
