    We all face challenges and one of the tricky things when facing these challenges is how to handle them in a God-ordained way? Peter Lord identifies ten challenges that individuals can experience and the ways in which we can respond to these challenges. The ten challenges addressed in this book are: making decisions, overcoming temptation, developing relationships, resolving conflicts, healing hurts, adjusting your attitudes, managing money, trusting through trials, submitting to authority, and preparing for death.

    Each challenge is well-explained and gives insight into how these challenges impact our lives. The challenge sections each feature Scripture that aid in solidifying the explanation of how to handle each challenge. Also included are discussion questions at the end of each challenge that really brings home the message of each chapter. These questions also serve as a good way to self-reflect on these areas in your own life.

    Overall, I recommend this book highly. The challenges addressed in this book are very relevant and can aid everyone. This book would also make a great tool for a bible study group as well.

    Happy Reading!

    Note: I have received a copy of this book from Chosen Books in exchange for an honest review.

    The ten challenges the authors write about in this book, are definitely challenges that we will face at some point in our lives. Decisions will have to be made, temptation will present itself and we will experience hurtful situations. Regardless of the challenges we face, our faith will be tested as discussed in Challenge #8 Trusting through Trials. This book is well written and the authors' expertise can have a positive impact if we use what has been written to change the way we think and allow it to teach us how to respond when faced with these challenges. Challenge #9 Submitting to Authorities is a challenge many struggle with daily. As Christians we know the importance of submitting and also know it is what God instructs us to do, however, sometimes it is a challenge. The principles of submission clearly explain the value of submitting. After reading this book, Christians and non-believers alike will be better prepared to face challenges discussed. Regardless of our beliefs, decision making is a part of our lives and proper money managing techniques apply to all who desire financial freedom. Thank you Chosen Books for allowing me to share my opinion. Also for giving me the opportunity to select a great book and providing copy free of charge.

    The title suggests that this is a book written for everyone. Who would not want to know the secrets to overcoming life's challenges and living a better life? It is, indeed, a book for all Christian people. Author Peter Lord identifies the ten biggest challenges we face in life and provides detailed instructions on how to meet these challenges.

    Using a mixture of wisdom, common sense, good advice, humor, scriptural quotes and applicable analogies, Lord lays out the steps to conquering each challenge. Scattered throughout the chapters are well-chosen, wise quotes that summarize the challenge in that chapter. The categories are general, but the instructions are quite specific. The ten challenges are:

    1. Making Decisions

    2. Overcoming Temptations

    3. Developing Relationships

    4. Resolving Conflicts

    5. Healing Your Hurts

    6. Adjusting Your Attitudes

    7. Managing Money

    8. Trusting through Trials

    9. Submitting to Authorities

    10.Preparing for Death

    These ten challenges are further broken down into steps, keys, symptoms and solutions. Lord makes a strong point that we must not only want the information to overcome the challenges, but must also be willing to apply the concepts. The sixth chapter discusses attitude adjustments and readers will benefit more by reading the book with an open mind and a humble spirit. As Lord states "Contentment is not having everything you want, but wanting everything you have."

    Each challenge's solution is designed to help us to improve our own lives and those of others. By following these steps, readers will be victorious over strife, sin, grief and life's biggest challenges and better prepared for the next life. We cannot enrich our own lives without blessing others, so grab a copy of this book and start working toward a better tomorrow for all.

    I was given a free copy of this book by Bethany House Publishers for honest review. I highly recommend this book for adults and teenagers.
