Overview

If Parents Are So Smart, Why Can't They Set the Clock on the VCR?

Deep down inside you love them. Most days you even like them. But you and your parents see things differently—sometimes it seems they landed here from some alien planet. It's all part of God's plan.

Growing up means getting ready to be on your own.

You're caught. You still depend on your family, but your family isn't always around. You fend for yourself with friends, with strangers, and at school. But sometimes your family treats you like you're stuck in a stroller.

Growing up isn't an excuse to run your own life. It's your chance to follow Christ for yourself. You need to figure out how to get along at home and on your own. Does Anybody Know What Planet My Parents Are From? explains how to

  • Make friends with your family
  • Walk smart when your parents aren't around
  • Stick close to Jesus even when nobody's looking.

A collection of readings on how young Christians can get along with their parents, discussing such topics as obedience, discipline, and respect.

Editorial Reviews

VOYA - Heidi Borton
The ultimate questions Who am I? What am I doing here? and Where am I going? are dealt with by skilled communicator and youth pastor Kevin Johnson. The author of many teen devotional books, Johnson hooks kids' interest with irresistible, funny "real life" stories presenting truth and direction. Does Anybody Know What Planet My Parents Are From? contains forty-five short devotionals each one easily read in five minutes) incorporating a story, a question, and an applicable Bible passage. Johnson makes the Bible personal and relevant to his readers. Generally, questions address issues of respect for parents, learning to be responsible and independent, facing up to failure and sins, and knowing God. This book is a winner. Catch the Wave! leads Christian readers on a persuasive exploration of involvement in what God is doing in the world today. Setting a foundation both Scripturally and statistically, the author describes Jesus's commandment to go into all the world and preach the good news, and the fact that great areas of the world still lack an indigenous Christian church. Dispelling the notion that young adults are too untrained and immature to make a positive contribution to their world, he describes practical steps to take in pursuing involvement at home, in the local church, community, and in short-term missions. An appendix describing helpful organizations, books and even Websites is included. Recommended for every young Christian interested in expanding their horizons and caring for their neighbors. Note: This review was written and published to address two titles: Catch the Wave! Grabbing Your Chance to Change the World! and Does Anybody Know What Planet My Parents Are From? Getting Along at Home and On Your Own. VOYA Codes: 5Q 2P J S (Hard to imagine it being any better written, For the YA with a special interest in the subject, Junior High-defined as grades 7 to 9 and Senior High-defined as grades 10 to 12).
