Product Description

In 8 Crucial Realities Lissa Raines explores the many misconceptions that can lead graduates down a dark and self-defeating path. For true success, graduates need to address their challenges head-on, making daily decisions that lead them forward in life. As graduates recognize that their perception of reality is not necessarily God's reality, and take corrective action, they will find themselves becoming men and women of integrity, centered in God. The eight realities addressed in this book are relationship realities, realities of God's will, personality realities, real authority, money realities, lifestyle realities, the dark reality of lies, and spiritual reality. Reflection questions at the beginning and end of each section make the book a stimulating small group study or a perfect graduation gift.

Publisher's Description

Graduation was your goal for so long, and it has finally come. Now what? A piece of paper and academic transcripts say you possess the tools to be successful, but do you have the practical wisdom to succeed in life and in a career? And how do you define success? Is it wealth, power, and fame, or is success developing extraordinary relationships and living life intentionally? 

Every day, we are faced with making choices and taking actions, all based on our individual perception of reality. In 8 Crucial Realities, author Lissa Raines explores the many misconceptions that can lead graduates down a dark, self-defeating path. Raines investigates eight spiritual and practical topics, including money, relationships, and God’s will, providing insights for living in line with God’s Word and principles. Graduates will learn how to avoid self-imposed difficulties or “soul toll.” 

Each graduation—high school, college, and graduate school—brings new challenges and new independence. By following the guidelines presented in 8 Crucial Realities, graduates of all levels will be able to create foundational, lifelong patterns for true success. Reflection questions at the beginning and end of each section provide opportunities for self-discovery and growth, making the book a stimulating small group study or perfect graduation gift.

    Beautiful graduation gift! The topics covered in the book are so fantastic I think every senior deserves a copy. The book truly teaches life skills not taught in the classroom.

    Read the Prologue before you purchase this book for a gift and you will be hooked into buying one for EACH of your graduates (and one for yourself as well). I am a community college instructor so I see first-hand the daily struggles that accompanies our high school grads. to college. This book is an outstanding resource for any graduate (high school or college). I would love to use this book as a textbook in our church's youth program. Great purchase !! I graduated 23 years ago and it is helping me to understand new ways to assist my college freshman.
