Thriving at College Thriving at College is a practical roadmap for launching into fruitful, God-honoring adulthood against the backdrop of a young adult culture that values delayed adolescence.

It covers the ten most common mistakes that college students make—and how to avoid them! It explores topics such as growing spiritually, embracing responsibility, loving God with all your mind, growing in character and maturity, striving for academic excellence, balancing work and recreation, finding your calling, establishing godly friendships, dating, handling the transition from high school to college, time management, financial discipline, and honoring parents while pursuing independence.

It will help students build a vibrant faith and become the person God created them to be. While some prosper spiritually, most get derailed, and an alarming number abandon their faith. Alex has written an insightful and useful book to help college-bound people know what to expect, how to prepare for it, and what to do to avoid the pitfalls. It will be an excellent gift for all high school seniors.

You can get the training you need to launch a meaningful career without going broke in the process. Graduation on a solid financial foundation is possible.

But it will require knowing how the system works, intentionality, creativity, and delayed gratification. By extension, parents with even younger children can benefit. In school, their teachers will tell you about short attention spans and superficial interests crowding out their appetite and even capacity for learning.

Out of school, even part-time jobs are hard to come by, depriving them of the chance to develop a work ethic, build skills, and earn money. At home, one in three is being raised without the love, protection and security of a father.

After high school, the link between higher education and professional success has never been stronger. Yet higher education has never been more expensive, and the U. And 71 percent of those who start two-year degrees will not finish them within three years. The message of Preparing Your Teens for College is that thriving at college begins before they get there—with what you do as Moms, Dads, youth pastors, mentors, and guidance counselors.

Academic and professional success flow from character and maturity. And as Christians we know that character and maturity flow from a God-mastered life, from the heart of a person who has bowed the knee to the Lord Jesus Christ. Preparing Your Teens for College is about helping you raise teens who understand the biblical message and are committed to putting away childishness, embracing responsibility, pursuing godly relationships, practicing moral purity, aiming for academic excellence, working unto the Lord, and honoring God in every aspect of their lives.

If that describes the kind of teen you want to see leave your home someday, then this book is for you. Every parent who wants his or her teen to make a successful transition to young adulthood will profit from this book.

Thriving at College: An Interview with Alex Chediak

This book is for LIFE in general. Wherever you are in life, this book provides extremely biblical and wonderful advice and pointers on how to live your life for Christ, avoid distractions, squash idols, manage time and money, nurture God-honoring relationships, and several other aspects and areas of life. I wish I could quote the entire book, but as that would be both ridiculous and futile, I have pulled out my most favorite parts and quotes for consideration and review. Adults are targeted as well. What I loved about this book is that it gently convicts, offers extremely practical advice, and softly redirects. I will admit: I am unfaithful in prayer, a Facebook addict, and a nearly always stressed out person. A life of goofing around and hanging out is unfulfilling.
