I couldn't get through the author's ponderous roundabout logic. Very wordy with little discernible content.

Although SPIRITING AROUND is written as a spiritual guide for teens, the knowledge it holds is perfect for any teen, whether or not they're a person of faith. Filled with practical guidelines for getting through life, this book focuses on being patient and persistent, and working towards being the best person you can possibly be.

The book contains six main chapters: Start Here; The Reason Why; Money; Love; Conflicts & Controversies; and The Expedition Continues.

Each chapter is laid out in an easy-to-read style that contains the author's thoughts, practical wisdom, biblical advice, and actual facts and figures. Each chapter also ends with pointed thoughts to encourage discussion and personal contemplation on what you've read. From figuring out the difference between what you need and what you want, and how to discover your own personal identity, SPIRITING AROUND can help any teen navigate their way through adolescence.

One of my personal favorites in the book are the sensible questions for developing friendships. The author puts forth some interesting concepts in learning how to develop friendships that are both fundamental and healthy.

Does this person have the same interests I do?
Do we have similar outlooks on life?
Do we share similar values?
Can I trust this person to accept me when I reveal my doubts and desires?
Are we both being honest?
Do they appreciate me?
Do they respect me as well as value me?
Are they interested in my thoughts on things?
Are they interested in my welfare?
Am I interested in theirs?
Do I respect them?

Regardless of your personal religious beliefs, this is a guidebook for life that every teen will find instructive and valuable.
