Getting real about today's life issues ...Contemporary young people who seek answers for crucial life questions need look no further than this sparkling, authentic Christian apologetic by Christy Brawner. Reared on the mission field but certainly not shielded from life's rough-and-tumble, Brawner is extraordinarily gifted at applying the Bible to today's practical dilemmas. She shows how God's Word recorded aeons ago speaks to "now" issues such as finding love, managing money, battling with weight-loss, struggling with career decisions, and seeking enduring friendships. Brawner's vibrant personality shines through as she shares personal experiences to demonstrate 12 core values people need to thrive in the modern world. She make being spiritual--sometimes eyed as being strangely "religious" or "weird"--sound relevant, fun, and absolutely vital for the abundant life God promises.
