Overview

In our 20s we make the most significant and formative decisions of our entire lives. We decide what career to choose and whom to marry, how we will spend our money, where we will live, what type of people we will surround ourselves with, and generally what will be the guiding force(s) of our lives. Ironically, these choices are made at a time when the most wisdom is needed but the least is possessed.

As a 30-year-old Christian who has sought God¹s leading in making many of the above decisions, Colin Creel sets out to share both what he¹s learned as well as the advice of some older, wiser men and women who can look back with discernment of the life-molding decisions all twentysomethings face. By addressing such topics as romance, work, friendship, character development, and spiritual formation, Simplicity offers life-changing daily tidbits of wisdom for the searching Christian twentysomething.
