Choose: Fulfill Your Created Purpose
I have a heart for high school graduates. Going to college, joining the military, or finding a job offers new friends and freedoms. Yet, life away from home for the first time also presents obstacles and options that cause teens to struggle. I know I sure struggled.
My college experience began 200 miles from home with no car or old friends on campus as a tether to my roots. Free at last, I spread my wings without fear of what folks back home might say. How’d that go? My faith floundered, especially the first two years. During that time, I never attended a campus ministry event, and I chose to attend church a grand total of once.
Academic advisors guided me with course selections and career advice, but what I needed most was the counsel I give in Choose. I urge teens to seek the Lord through the Bible and godly counsel as they map out their future. God can weave their unique talents with their individual interests and give them a clear sense of purpose as they launch their careers.
What people are saying about Choose
“This would be a wonderful book for parents and their graduates to read together. It offers pertinent topics to discuss — however those conversations arise. Sharing personal experiences and stories is an excellent way to prepare everyone, drawing the family closer, before a graduate departs.”
“[David] is insightful and motivating without becoming preachy. Covering practical advice on careers and relationships, Brannock encourages and challenges young people to make wise choices. Moving beyond practical matters, the book also does a good job of discussing core beliefs that shape faith and behavior. I wish I had received a book like this when I graduated from high school.”
“Finding purpose and direction may not rank up there with college choices, prom dates, and summer jobs in the minds of many graduates, but David understands that what they decide about Jesus truly is the most important choice they’ll every make.“
“A must read for high school graduates, young adults, and parents and grandparents of young people looking for guidance in life… Very practical guidance based on practical experience.“
