Offering inspiration and encouragement to readers through story and spiritual insight, Bethany House titles frequently appear on Christian bestseller lists.
Revell - began over 125 years ago when D. L. Moody and his brother-in-law Fleming H. Revell saw the need for practical books that would help bring the Christian faith to everyday life. From there, Fleming H. Revell Publishing developed consistently solid lists that included many notable Christian writers over the years. This same vision for books that are both inspirational and practical continues to motivate the Revell publishing group today. Whether publishing fiction, Christian living, self-help, marriage, family, or youth books, each Revell publication reflects relevance, integrity, and excellence.

Reviews - What do customers think about God Allows U-Turns for Teens: The Choices We Make Change the Story of Our Life?
Teens love this book! Jan 5, 2007
My granddaughter (13) got outbid on this book at a silent-auction benefit. The bidding was fierce and all the teens who "lost" made a run on the local bookstore to get their own copy. Delightful real stories the kids can relate to. Highly recommended!
A great book for teens Jul 12, 2006
God Allows U-Turns For Teens consists of true-life stories by real teens. I was amazed at their honesty and frankness. The stories are about making choices; choosing to take a stand, choosing to love, pray, withess, or choosing to overcome. The teen years are the most vulnerable. Young people with very little experience are faced with serious choices that can change their lives forever. This book will help your teens make the right decisions. Some of the stories are heartbreaking, but they are all filled with hope. I strongly recommend this book for all teenagers.
Teen Insight for Every Day Life May 7, 2006
It's one of the most formulative times of life--our teen years. During those years, we make many choices about our faith, our career and our life. With pointed storytelling, each story in this book will help teens in this important journey.
This collection of stories is ideal for any teen to use as devotional reading right before school or right before they fall asleep. Through the experiences of other teens, your teen can become aware of the important impact of each small and major choice in life.
My personal teen story is the last one in the book (just to give full disclosure). It's called Two Words That Changed My Life.
Get this book for yourself or your teen.
Every Teen Should Read It! Apr 5, 2006
Teens make life decisions every day-and they're pulled in so many directions, tempted at every turn to make stupid, ungodly choices. How refreshing it is to be able to read about life-altering changes real teens have made. God Allows U-Turns for Teens holds a message of amazing hope for every teen. Hope-that's just what a teen really needs!
Hang on for the ride! Mar 8, 2006
Allison Bottke's purpose in life is to share the great news that if we choose to come to Him, we will be allowed U-Turns in life. She also wrote God Allows U-Turns for Women.
In God Allows U-Turns for Teens: The Choices We Make Change the Story of our Life we benefit from the true and inspiring stories of teens (from 13 to 20 years old) whose lives were changed by coming before God and allowing Him to work in their lives.
Young people will be guided and encouraged by the journeys of the individual authors. But it is not a book just for teens. Parents and others will benefit from reading about what teens are doing and thinking and feeling about life and the choices that they make.
Armchair Interviews says: Hang on for the ride because these teens are honest and searching. This is a book to be read and then encourage others to buy. Everyone who reads it will have a favorite story. The choice depends on where the reader is in their individual journey.
