Story Behind the Book

"Beginning my freshman year in college, God began drawing my heart to His. That spring, I trusted Christ as Lord and Savior and latched on to His journey. As an avid reader and eager Christian, I anxiously sought any material on faith-related topics. More specifically, I was craving material from people in my stage of life. It became quickly apparent, however, that collegiate voices had been overlooked, or at least left untold. This seemed a dangerous void. So with God’s provision, I setout to write a book that would tell the stories of common struggles Christians face in college everywhere. Thus began the vision of Can You Keep Your Faith in College. " — Abbie Smith

Author Bio

Abbie Smith was raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Though she grew up in a loving home, religion was never a priority. Even through her Catholic high school, the concept of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ remained silent. Abbie attended Emory University and accepted Christ in the spring of her freshman year. After four busy years of campus ministry involvement and playing on the tennis team, she graduated in May of 2003 majoring in religion. Abbie is a member of North Point Community Church and resides in Atlanta, Georgia. Her passions include writing, discipleship, and spending time in God’s great outdoors.

    As a parent of a college freshman, this book gave me the perspective I needed to relate to what my daughter is encountering. I have been in a state of panic as she recounted all the things she is experiencing in just the first semester. The testimonials of the college students in Abbie Smith's book encouraged and reminded me that all Christian college students face a choice of faith. Specific examples are given of how they dealt with situations and what they learned that helped them to become stronger and more dependent on their Savior! (My daughter read it her Senior year, but I'm sending it to her to read again as now it will be more applicable!)

    Great book! Share this with your high school or college students. I've started giving it young men and women that are a part of my church at SDSU. Excellent and credible since it is written by those in the college trenches.
