Publisher's Description

Growing up is hard to do—especially when, technically, you’re already grown up. You yearn for the days when you could play with your toys and retire to your bedroom for a much needed nap. You were fed, you were clothed, but now you’re left to figure it all out on your own. Now that you’re twenty-something, there are so many things that you need to do, and seemingly, no one to tell you how. . . until now.

Launch Your Life is a practical guide to navigating life’s twists and turns, and to achieving success in all you do. You’ll social network with the best of them, write a killer resume, land an interview, and transition into the working world with ease. You’ll also deal with changing relationships with friends and family, you’ll pray hard, grow in your faith, and you’ll even learn to turn your failures into future successes. With Launch Your Life you’ll be prepared, organized, and ready to set yourself up for a smooth transition into your new life of independence.

Features include:

  • Two interior pockets to keep papers, receipts, and notes scribbled on napkins
  • Blank calendar and note pages to jot notes and juggle appointments
  • Plastic slots to hold business cards
  • Chapter dividers to help you quickly find what you need
  • A built-in elastic band to help you keep it all together

As one who is passionate about doing life and ministry with young adults, I'm always looking for resources to recommend.  Launch Your Life made me stand up and cheer with excitement as there is nothing like it out on the market.  The helpful checklists as well as the tell-it-like-it-is honest truth about LIFE will guide and direct young adults to do what the book promises:  launch into adulthood, fully prepared.  I can't recommend this book enough.  If you are ready to jump into the real world, Launch Your Life by Kenny Silva is a must read.

    Launch Your Life (A Guide to Growing Up for the Almost Grown Up) by Kenny Silva is...well, the subtitle pretty much explains what it is :). There are five main sections: Identity, Career, Finances, Home, and Growth. The author starts with explaining that we need to find our identity in Christ. This reminds me of what my mom tells me and it's an important reminder for everyone. He then talks about dealing with changing relationships/friendships, dealing with fear, and dealing with failure. In the career section, there are tips for networking, interviewing, negotiating, and writing a good resume. In the finances section, he covers saving, giving, and budgeting. I was inspired to put together a sample budget for when I someday have a steady income. This section also made me think about how it'll be wise to start investing in retirement once I have a regular job...the sooner, the better. In the home section, the author helps readers decide whether buying a home or renting is right for them and how to go about doing either one. The last section is about personal and spiritual growth. While those in their twenties should probably already know most of the stuff in this book, it's nice that there is an easy-to-read guide written by a Christian which they can refer to :).

    ~I received this book from Thomas Nelson/Booksneeze for free in exchange for my honest review.

    I recently had the chance to read "Launch Your Life A Guide to Growing Up for the Almost Grown Up" by Kenny Silva through a service at Blogging for Books that offers people free books in return for an honest review, whether positive or negative.

    I really enjoyed this little book. As someone who struggles with getting it all together, and someone who also is a visual person, list maker, has-to-have-right-in-front-of-me type person, the format of this book makes a lot of sense. It's meant to be used, not just read once and then put up. It has pages for taking notes, writing down your thoughts, making lists, places to put business cards, and then has elastic around it to hold it closed so everything wont fall out.

    He writes about everything, from dealing with, loving and respecting your parents, to moving out, finding an an apartment, when and if to buy a house, relationships, finding a church, and how to find and keep the job you love- among other things. He included Biblical lessons and verses also.

    He don't try to sugar count anything and in between showing you how to do things, he tells the stories of when and how he failed- like being an ungodly relationship, or being offered a job but not negotiating a salary. He is honest, funny, brutal, and makes everything tie together nicely.

    I'm definitely holding on to this one long term.
