Overview

Over the years culture has manipulated happiness to mean, "What can I do for me?"
We expect to live in a safe, clean, and comfortable place, and now literally have access to every piece of information at our fingertips. We can shop, socialize, and learn from the most comfortable place-- our homes. And the ones surrounded by everything digital are the up-and-coming leaders of society-- the young adults.

But they are not the ones idly sitting, buying into the idea that life is a race for self-satisfaction. Instead, young adults are the ones utilizing new technology and their own passion to implement change by raising awareness of needs and serving in their local community.

It's Not All About You offers essays by young adults from many different backgrounds who are leading the charge in order to make the world a better place. Read, learn, and be inspired to create change.

Meet the Author

Julie is a graduate of Berry College (B.A., 1997) and Lexington Theological Seminary (M. Div., 2002). She currently serves on the Leadership Team for the Disciples Youth Ministry Network (www.dymn.org) and has participated as counselor, director and/or featured speaker at a number of Disciples youth camps and conferences in Georgia, North Carolina and Kentucky. She is the co-editor of It's Not All About You, a series of essays for and by young adults about what it means to engage in mission as a way of life.

Courtney Richards is the Minister for Congregational Growth at Geist Christian Church in Indianapolis, IN. After attending to the details of her ministry (and sometimes before and during!), you can find her divining AND detailing the fun of a dance floor and the groove of a bass line (she's blessed with lots of local musician pals), being Auntie Rev to her friends' kids, or engrossed in a book, movie, or chocolate (and sometimes all three).
