Today is the Day!!
The Long Awaited Birth Has Come!
Five Years in the Making, and hundreds of teenage and University Students shaped the message of this new book, ALONE.
When asked, "What is the Biggest Issues Teenagers Deal with Today?" One might resort to trying to deal with Substance Abuse, Sexual promiscuity, or in the faith community; the lack of understanding about the God, Jesus' message, and Biblical Literacy.
Sure, all those things need attention, but in my 15 years of experience, Loneliness is THE issue of our day.
Students live in a world more connected than any other time, yet they feel as though no one really knows them.
Adults working in offices or raising kids at home are surrounded by people, but don't really know who is "With Them."
The beauty of learning about the problem of Loneliness isn't that we all have to raise our hands in some sort of AA meeting, "Hi, My name is Andy!"
"HI ANDY!" they all reply.
NO! It's a process where we can analyze why we feel the way we do, and how to engage on a social level. We can be friends on Facebook, follow each other on Twitter, or even make silly You Tube videos, but if we're not engaging in a life on life relationships, we're setting our selves up for a life of Loneliness.
And Guess What?? In my research, WE'RE ALL FEELING THE SAME WAY!!!
There's no shame in feeling like you're on the outside of life looking in at everyone else having fun. Everyone else is doing the same thing to you!
God didn't design us to live in isolation, and I believe this book will help develop stronger friendships with teenagers, deeper relationships with University Students, and ultimately I believe adults will find this book deeply moving in their own world.
So, what are you waiting for? Go get it!
