Review: Ready or Not by:Moser/Fankhauser

 Ready or Not: Leaning into Life in Our Twenties
About the Book:
Discerning a calling is a messy undertaking. You are already involved in many good things now, even as you are being called to many good things in your future. The good life―good work, good relationships, good citizenship, good faith―is to be enjoyed now and pursued on every horizon. We are living out the Kingdom of God even as we seek it.

Ready or Not is a much-needed resource for young people on exploring the complexity of vocation in empowering, not prescriptive, ways. After exploring four foundational questions for emerging adulthood―Who is God? Who am I? How have I been shaped? What are my contexts?―you will work through interactive chapters covering the contours of adulthood, including: spirituality, family, community, and work.

Explore the full depths of your twenties with bravery and vulnerability! With insight into life skills, personal growth, and spirituality, Ready or Not will set you on a faithful trajectory for a good and meaningful life.


My Review:
 When a young person takes that finally step into adulthood, it can be downright terrifying for the young person and the said parents of that young person. So many new adventures and trials. So many unanswered questions. The fear of the unknown comes to mind. We as parents have to help them at least in the beginning to navigate priorities and to let the weaker of these fall by the wayside--as they should and to teach our kids the difference.

 Ready or Not is not just a self help advice book it is a book to share with that young adult to help them navigate and search out what the Lord has for them. Most of us do not know or comprehend that He has placed a calling on us and this is a good book to use to get down to the bottom of it. There are tons of information in the book but also some homework sections, as well to help with the process.

 A great book for navigating young adulthood.
