When you get out on your own, with a new job, a new living situation, and new responsibilities, often there can be new heartaches as well. Maybe you're going through a tough break up, the loss of a loved one, or your dream job didn't pan out. These challenges can be difficult to face alone. In Crew: Finding Community When Your Dreams Crash, Christin Taylor explores how young adults can find support and friendship when they need it most. You can find the hope and security you need as part of a community facing similar challenges.
Most young adults at some point experience a personal "shipwreck"missing out on the job you wanted, the unexpected end of a relationship, a crisis of faiththat threatens to rip apart the fabric of your identity. What helps navigate a personal shipwreck is to have a crew of reliable people who walk with you through it. In Crew: Finding Community When Your Dreams Crash, Christin Taylor explores how young adults can both find good company during a time of personal shipwreck and be good company for others who might be experiencing their own shipwreck. In the process, you will learn the hope and security that comes from being part of a community. Based on sound scriptural principles and the latest research on young adult spiritual formation, Taylor gives young adults the knowledge and perspective you need to build a community that will help you make your way toward a sense of hope and new meaning.
