Overview

Twentysomethings today are redefining what this decade means and what making a positive contribution to society looks like. One reality is today's economy - you may find yourself a recent college graduate with no job prospects. As such, many twentysomethings are shifting away from career, to calling, looking for ways to impact the world. Or maybe for you, a career or job is what you do in order to support the more meaningful work you love, like photography, music, brewing, or traveling.


Likely you have found a tribe of like-minded people who are taking the journey with you, asking yourselves big questions like what to do with life, what does it mean, why should I settle down with a spouse and house so soon? These questions have huge ramifications for all aspects of society. Twentysomethings need new ways of thinking about institutions and finding rootedness in a transient culture, while at the same time institutions need new ways of thinking about and incorporating twentysomethings. Join David H. Kim, the executive director of the Center for Faith and Work at Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, as he walks through the uniqueness of this transformative decade.

    A very good read for those young adults that are wanting to find

    A very good read for those young adults that are wanting to find what they are looking for in life. Many '20 Somethings' do not know where they are in life and this is something that is common universally. 

    Kim puts things into perspective when providing statistics that many do not know where they are but how Faith can help lead the way. This is a very good read and I would recommend this to any, '20 Something.'

    MUST READ

    Twentysomethings are different today than they were generations ago, but you already knew that. Even so, they are not as bad as people think. A doomed generation? Or just trying to get by in a world gone mad? Trying to understand your life or a twentysomething in it? You should definitely read this book. FRAMES has a great way of bringing you information compacted in a small easy to read book. Did you know that only 30 % of Millenials (aka twentysomethings) believe that churches have their best interests at heart? They believe Universities do more (32%). 25% of Millenials decline to affliate with any organized religion.

    The top 5 things Millenials want to do before they turn 30:
    become financially independant:59%
    finish my education:52%
    start a carrer:51%
    find out who I really am:40%
    follow my dreams:31%

    In 2012, about 36% of adults ages 18 to 31 were living in their parents home. The highest number in this age group in 4 decades.

    This is just some of the information in this book.

    The realization that i'm in my mid-twenties just really hit me about a month ago. Rapidly approaching 24 & not really where I want to be in life, I wanted to know if I was the only one. Reading this book gave me some piece of mind. It felt nice to know that I'm not alone in some of my thoughts. I would definitely recommend this book to any Millenial or anyone just wanting to get into the mind of our generation.

    *I recieved this book for free from Book Look Bloggers in exchange for my review & opinons.*

    20 And Something: Have the Time of Your Life (And Figure It All

    20 And Something: Have the Time of Your Life (And Figure It All Out Too) is a book written by David H. Kim with Re/Frame by Phylls Tickle.   It’s a pocket sized book that the Barna Group, a trusted analyst of religion and culture, has produced.  The series is called FRAMES.  The topics of each FRAME is varied, but I selected this title for selfish reasons; I am a parent to two 20 somethings, better known as Millennials.  I have to be honest; there are times that I just don’t get where they are coming from.  I need help figuring out how they tick and why they approach life the way they do and why so many are living in their parent’s basements?  This quick read did shed some light and provide some hope for a bright future.
    Every generation struggles with the differences between generations. That is nothing new. It doesn’t have to be a stumbling block.  It doesn’t have to be negative or cause discouragement.  All we really need is a chance to get to know what our differences are so we can begin to relate on a positive level.  
    Sure, we know this generation has had access to the world through technology, has been impacted by the reality of terrorism at home and abroad. But what we are just beginning to unravel is the mystery of how these things really shape how they view adulthood, marriage, career, and organized religion.  When my 22-year-old says to me “YOLO … you only live once” when I am stressing over something, it makes me pause and think how much her generation really does want to make the most of this life that they have.
    This FRAME gave me a clear lense to look through; one without judgment but filled with facts.  Having read it I can say I better understand by own 20 somethings.  I celebrate our differences and see a bright future. 
    I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
