Graduation has been your goal for so long, and it has finally come. Now what? A piece of paper and academic transcripts say you possess the tools to be successful, but do you have the practical wisdom to succeed in life and in a career? And how do you define success? Is success wealth, power, and fame, or is success developing extraordinary relationships and living life intentionally?
Every day, we are faced with making choices and taking actions, all based on our individual perception of reality. In 8 Crucial Realities, author Lissa Raines explores the many misconceptions that can lead graduates down a dark, self-defeating path. Raines investigates eight spiritual and practical topics, including money, relationships, and God's will, providing tips and practical insights for living in line with God's Word and principles. Graduates will learn how to avoid self-imposed difficulties or "soul toll."
Each graduation-high school, college, and graduate school-brings new challenges and new independence. By following guidelines presented in 8 Crucial Realities, graduates of all levels will be able to create foundational, lifelong patterns for true success.
Reflection questions at the beginning and end of each section provide opportunities for self-discovery and growth, making 8 Crucial Realities a stimulating small group study or a perfect graduation gift.
Have you ever wondered . . .
Is there just one person in the entire world that I should marry?
Is true spirituality found within?
Is it smart to use credit cards to build my credit?
Should I expect the person I marry to change to make me happy?
Are there rigid rules for determining what type of entertainment I should enjoy?
Is God against wealth?
Should I be the authority for what is right and wrong for me?
Is it possible to give too much?
In 8 Crucial Realities Raines answers these and many other practical and spiritual questions. Break down false realities and replace them with life-giving, true realities. The darkness of false realities leads to chaos and complication, while the light of true realities promotes peace and simplicity.
