Life is a journey of growing up, starting over, and forging new beginnings. Celia Whitler has a wonderfully engaging story to tell that graduating seniors are sure to understand as they themselves face big changes in their lives. A singer-songwriter and speaker who tours extensively, Whitler offers this warm, inviting collection of stories about people she has met along the way--"especially young people--"and what they have taught her about growing up in faith. Each chapter contains reflection questions and challenges especially for graduates. The book also includes a CD containing five brand-new songs (penned specifically for this project) that reflect Whitler's appealing style and warmth.Some practical applications are:* Sermon Illustrations* Small Group Studies* Personal Reflection* Graduation Gifts"Like giving a trusted friend the key to your diary, Celia reveals her world, her warmth, her sincerity, her love of Christ. Her real-life friendship stories teach us how to watch for the good and God in whatever comes our way. The stories, songs and reflection questions make for a treasured gift." -- Joani Schultz, Chief Creative Officer, Group Publishing
