Spiritual, Practical, Real-Life Advice with a Twist of Humor

101 real-life tips including. . .

  • Today’s nerd is tomorrow’s boss.
  • If you have to look over your shoulder to check if anyone’s in the room, you probably shouldn’t be typing it into the search engine.
  • Learn a skill that would help you survive a zombie apocalypse.
  • Losing your temper feels really good. . .for about 17 seconds. Keeping your cool feels even better. . .for the rest of the week.
  • Realize most bad choices usually began five choices ago.
  • If you have a TV in your bedroom, unplug it right now and move it to another room.

. . .and dozens more helpful hints provide spiritual, practical, and even humorous advice for navigating the challenges of your teen years with confidence and wisdom.

 “Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering. Embracing what God does for you is the best thing you can do for him. Don’t become so well-adjusted to your culture that you fit into it without even thinking. Instead, fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out. Readily recognize what he wants from you, and quickly respond to it. Unlike the culture around you, always dragging you down to its level of immaturity,

God brings the best out of you, develops well-formed maturity in you.

Hott Synopsis: Every day each of us is faced with choices. What you chose will determine the course of your life. No, it’s not drama. It’s cause and effect. Spend a little time each day and see what choices God wants you to make and why. Yes, even HE has something to say about screen-time! Hott Review: What I liked: This book is amazing! It’s s series of short Q&A essays to not only help teens learn how to conquer their choices God’s way but also what to look for so they don’t start heading down the wrong path. My favorite part? As a girl reading it hit me that they weren’t pulled together in a specific format but then it hit me that the book reminded me of a conversation with my teen sons. Short. To the Point. No Fluff. Just Facts. Perfect for a teen’s brain! What I didn’t like: There are some subjects broached that are not appropriate for all teens. Yes, they’ll encounter them but they may not be ready to think about them. More… Author: Jonathan McKee Source: Shiloh Run Press via Netgalley then I bought it (& the sequal) for myself!! Grade: A Ages: 15+ Steam: YA — There are some controversial topics that all teens may not be ready to read. Do a quick review before handing this over to your teen.
