I received this book from the author for the purpose of this review. All comments and opinions are entirely my own.
God created you for a purpose. Will you choose to fulfill it? High school graduates face a sea of possibilities. Will you pursue a college degree, military service, or job search? As you launch the next step of your journey, saying yes to one option means saying no to other good opportunities. Who is the real you? What do you want? Career and relationship choices are important, but what you decide about Jesus is the most important choice you will ever make. In Choose, author David E. Brannock offers the advice and wisdom he wishes he’d had on campus 200 miles from home. His experiences, supported by Scripture, serve as a lighthouse. May this book steer you away from the rocks he hit and illuminate the course God intends for you.
Lighthearted and insightful on guiding you as you transition from high-school to college, is Choose, a book written for graduates by an author who wishes that he would’ve had this book during his transition.
It’s a short book but it somehow covers everything you may have questions about, from how to handle relationships and friendships, to troublesome roommates, to choosing your career, to even maintaining self-esteem in a world that seems to only want to tear you down. It also has some wonderful one-liners that you might scribble down on your mirror!
The author has a sense of humor but is also very real and vulnerable to his audience, making it that much easier to engage with. Plus, he’s not long-winded nor does he repeat his advice constantly as so many other nonfiction writers do.
So, I can honestly give Choose; Fulfill Your Created Purpose 5 out of 5 stars and do recommend it for graduates, especially those of you who aren’t overly fond of reading but still looking for some helpful advice.
