Relationships are like road trips.
Sometimes theyre an exciting adventure. But sometimes theyre like a traffic jam going nowhere. Or even worse, theyre a wrong turn thats taken you hundreds of miles off your course.
With much-needed humor and honest advice, bestselling author and speaker Chad Eastham helps you think through tough but necessary relationship issues such as:
· Why some people find happiness, while others find heartache
· Why pain hurts so much
· When to break up
· When to make up
Chads conversational tone, facts, and advice encourage young people to rethink lifes conversations, even the difficult stuff like heartbreak. There is nothing in life that is too big, too painful, or too difficult that God cannot make better and use to teach us about love. Nothing.
IreneUnited States5 Stars Out Of 5Helpful book for teenagers!March 16, 2013IreneUnited StatesQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This is an excellent book for all teenagers and their parents to read. The author has a great sense of humor and as you read the book you feel like you are having a fantastic conversation with a friend. The information he shares is personal and practical. I liked how he showed that the emotional times you are encountering as a teenager can help you become a better adult. I also liked that the book was not judgmental in any way but was very encouraging! I gave this book 5/5 stars. I would recommend this book for any teenager, youth group, or Sunday School class. It is a great book to read alone or with a group! This is a must read!
I would like to thank the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
StarlaSpringfield, MOAge: 18-24Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5A Book About Relationships for the Whole TeenagerMarch 7, 2013StarlaSpringfield, MOAge: 18-24Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As a pastor, I am not a teenager dealing with a tough relationship or break up, but was interested to see how Eastham would deal with this issue for teens who are struggling in relationships. Within the first few chapters, I was impressed with Eastham's ability to communicate honest and life-empowering truths about being whole people in a style that would relate well with teens. He gives sound instruction that pertains not only to romantic relationships, but also to all relationships. Perhaps what I appreciate the most is the way that Eastham addresses the whole person. He never negates any feelings that teenagers may have, but causes readers to reflect on the reasons behind the feelings. It's like reading a really good life lesson, such as,
"We don't just need the answers to our questions. We need to learn how to find out the answers to our questions." And, "You are not powerless in the whirlwind of life. Until you realize you aren't powerless, however, you will be a victim in every storm in life."
Eastham also weaves powerful quotes from renown people as well as Scripture throughout each chapter that support the overall premise of the chapter in a positive way.
I would recommend this book to the teenager, from about 14 to maybe 19, who often finds themselves consumed with romantic interests and relationships. Or for the teen who has been in a long-term relationship and is about to break up or has recently experienced a break up. For more mature teens who don't seem to get caught in the typical whirlwind of dating drama or are capable of a bit higher level (around a college level) of thinking, this might not be the best fit and a more adult-level book about relationships would probably be more beneficial.
Overall, thank you, Chad Eastham, for writing a well-rounded book that deals the issue of breaking up. Thanks for taking the feelings of teenagers into account and not just dismissing them as people and desires. Your compassion and gentleness is refreshing.
I received this book from Thomas Nelson through Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.
GodBlessAmericaHills of KentuckyAge: 55-65Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Great book for teensFebruary 10, 2013GodBlessAmericaHills of KentuckyAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I asked to review The Truth About Breaking Up, Making Up and Moving On , by Chad Eastham because I am the grand mother of 7 grand-daughters, four between the ages of 12-16. Chad has a great way of making a serious topic totally fun for teen boys and girls, between the ages of 13-17. He covers social media (FB, etc) today and its effects on teens as well as adults. Chad frequently puts himself "out there" and explains how he learned to deal with certain experiences he had problems with. This puts the young reader in a more receptive mood to take advice from the book. I learned a lot in this book myself which surprised me. I will be purchasing this book for members of my family.
Thank you, Chad for a much needed book for teens in the social media age we live in. You will learn how to break up, make up(or if your should) and how to gracefully move on.
