In the young adult motivational/self-help genre, this book should receive all the awards available! Paige Omartian is an extremely rare young lady with a passion for spurring young people to define and achieve their dreams, awaken their passions, and act on their calling. Diagnosed with cancer at age 10, she fought the fight and is living the lessons life has taught her so far. With real-life examples of young people who dared to live their purpose as teenagers and clear directions for defining your gifts, abilities, and passions, as well as an easy-to-follow formula for writing a life mission statement and putting it into immediate practice, Wake Up, Generation is a must-read for every teen and young adult!
I just can’t say enough good about this book. In a society of apathetic, bored teenagers, Paige Omartian is sounding the alarm to her generation to Wake Up! When it is released (I believe the projected date is September), I urge you to run to your nearest bookseller and buy a copy for every teenager you know. If you are a youth worker or Sunday school teacher, this would make a life-changing teaching series for your group- buy a copy for every student and read through it together; have the teens do the end of chapter challenges in class or as a homework assignment. Or better yet, host a young ladies’ weekend retreat (or a combined youth retreat) and spend the weekend developing a life action plan for every girl (and boy)! Can you tell I’m excited about this one? I can’t wait to get a copy for the teens in my church youth group and work through it with them!
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher and was not required to write a positive review.
