A young voice that gives fresh perspective to her generation Dec 31, 2001
I saw this in the bookstore and after looking through it, bought it for my cousin who's turning 16. I like how Danae shares her life experiences and how she sees God throughout them. I think because it's written by a young woman it will touch the younger generation in a way that other books can't. I hope this encourages my cousin to look at life in the same way.
Encouragement during trying times from generation youth Nov 19, 2001
It seems lately we do not hear enough encouraging words from todays young people.. if author Danea Jacobson has anything to do with it that will all change. Danea's book is a quick, inspiring read for people of all walks of faith. Whether she is reflecting on family, friends or the future her outlook is always positive. That is something our society never has enough of especially from the MTV generation. Although raised in a family with strong values, Danea admits to the same confusion and struggle all people have encountered through life. This book would be a great read for parents and teens especially those going through the tough teen years. There are plenty of positvie thoughts and quotes throughout this book Danea seems to always find a silver lining in every cloud.
