Imagine the Future You by Ada Brownell

    I don't often review books here at Writing with God's Hope blog, but I found a special book for young adults and new adults that I believe is worth recommending.

     My oldest daughter, Julia Clark, once told me that our churches didn't prepare kids for college. After having given her heart to Christ at a young age and then attending church through high school,  she took a course in Western Civilization at college that almost threw her. No one had questioned her about her faith until then. No one had placed alternative roads to life before her. Ada Brownell's latest release, Imagine the Future You does just that--prepares young people for their future.

     Brownell tells the reader what it takes to be a success in business, in marriage, in life. The words read more like fiction, interesting, captivating, unique. The author uses the imagine theme for each section; imagine you falling in love, imagine you as an older adult, imagine you achieving your dreams ...  At the end of the book, Brownell asks questions from each chapter to test your comprehension and application for life.  Part of the book reads like a Christian apologist, giving young people evidence for a belief in God.

     The back of the book lists questions that are answered in this book. Here is a few:
     How harnessing your will can make you a champion.
     How to look and be your best.
     How to avoid traps that jeopardize your future.

     Ms. Brownell knows her stuff and cites her facts in an orderly, understandable fashion. She spent 17 years as a newspaper reporter. Her writing encompasses 275 articles. Her fiction stories show up in 45 different magazines. Her books include Swallowed by Life and Confessions of A Pentecostal.  Her prolific writing and researching gives her access to studies that will convince the most doubtful new adult.

I was very impressed with it. Next time, we visit my middle daughter, I'm taking my copy to my 16 year old grandson. Thanks for commenting, Cheryl.

Thanks so much, Janet, for inviting me to be your guest. Thanks, too, for all your gracious comments about the book. People need a foundation for their faith, if they don't build it, everything else crumbles. God bless you for featuring the book and reviewing it!
