From the books web-site:
"What I Wish I Knew at 18 is an engaging, comprehensive, and conversational book written to help young adults achieve success in life. It provides practical, road-tested wisdom in essential life arenas as life perspective, character, relationships and communication, spiritual life, handling adversity, personal productivity, college academics, career selection and advancement, love and marriage, and managing finances. Through illustration, instruction, and reflective questions, the book reveals 109 success pointers that auger a soaring launch into adulthood. Unique in scope, universal in its message, and timely in its wisdom, What I Wish I Knew at 18 is designed to serve as an invaluable life coach."

The author offers helpful tips on the many issues we deal with once we turn adults. This book would be helpful for a senior in high school or young adult entering college or the work world. I have already lived through many of the situations he writes about, so I can see how this book would be great to have read before I ventured out. This a book you don't have to read from front to back, you could pick out the subject you are needing guidance and encouragement from. He also offers throughout the book, what he calls take five, offering you questions to help you reflect upon. This would make a perfect gift to give to a graduating high school student or college student. If you would like to receive a free copy of this book, comment by telling me what you wish you would have known at 18 or share this post and let me know by indicating in the comment section that you shared by March 26, I will select a winner randomly.

  1. I wish I had known God's plans for my life would look way different than my dreams but would eventually prove to be just what I needed.

    Looks like a great book for my teens, Jennie. Thanks for the giveaway.
