Editorial Reviews

"Paige's book is a must-read. It is a clarion call to live the life God calls us to live in a world where so many are either bored or simply going through the motions. My prayer is that this book will find its way into the hands of young people who will be inspired to serve and live authentic lives. We serve an amazing God and I am thankful to Paige for her willingness to be used by Him to help inspire others and, in the process, help to heal a hurting world."
David Williams, president and CEO, Make-A-Wish Foundation

"I wish I'd read this book when I was younger. No doubt it would have saved me many painful lessons! Paige inspires and enlightens us through this book to find the source of our identity and ignite a real, relevant, and radical sense of purpose. The practical applications throughout the book will help you walk out your own story and clearly see through the lies the world tells us about ourselves. I could not recommend this book enough—everyone needs to hear this miraculous story and should expect a real life change through it."
Robert Beeson, President and CCO, BEMA Media, founder of Essential Records

"This book is an amazing testimony of how God can bring blessing out of tragedy. Paige's story will not only leave you shaken, but it will motivate you to step out and live differently. Her story has the potential to wake up an entire generation for the glory of God. Read on and become that generation."
Mike Blackaby, speaker and coauthor of When Worlds Collide

"Many books inspired me, but only a few provided the rough shake needed for radical life transformation. This was one of the few. Paige's passionate plea to her generation is heart-wrenching, humorous, uncomfortable, and at its heart, unavoidably convicting. When I reluctantly finished, I was no longer at the same place spiritually as I when I began. Life is much too short to spend sleepwalking; we need a wakeup call—and with this essential book, Paige has given us one."
Daniel Blackaby, speaker and coauthor of When Worlds Collide

"All of us have stories to tell, but few of us recognize their power. In Wake Up, Generation, Paige Omartian delivers a fresh and fervent challenge to a generation rendered immobile by apathy. She empowers us all to rise up and join the greatest Story ever told."
Constance Rhodes, founder and CEO of FINDINGbalance, author of The Art of Being: Reflections on the Beauty and Risk of Embracing Who We Are

"We live in a time in which there are so many things to keep us occupied and entertained, and yet we are still falling asleep, missing the very work we have been called to do. Paige speaks to us in a way that catches our attention and ‘wakes us and shakes us,' up and out. This is not a how-to book but it is a have-done book. Her story of resilience propels even the sleepiest to wake up."
Jamie Grace, winner of the 2012 Dove Award for New Artist of the Year

    Paige knows the value of life. She was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma when she was ten. The mass in her leg that had made it sore was cancer. She spent time in a cancer ward. At one point, angry and confused by the death of one of her young friends in the ward, she scribbled in her journal. A verse. Then a chorus. She had written her first song and it was a defining moment for her.

    Through the Make-A-Wish foundation, she recorded two Twila Paris songs. Word got around. She was not yet fourteen, was cancer free, and was singing at corporate events and fundraisers. She was on the Bath & Body Works Christmas CD (to benefit Make-A-Wish) and was sent on a media tour.

    Paige uses her own story to introduce her readers to the truths she has learned. She reminds us it is a big lie that we are of no value. Each of us is a perfect candidate to be used by God. "No matter how filthy, bruised, or beaten down you may be, God wants to rebuild you." (71)

    She helps us find out what our gift is, how to renew that fire of our dream. She gives several examples to show that young people can change the world. She encourages us to form our own mission statement, showing us how to identify our passions. She gives great examples of teens who have made the world a better place, both as individuals and as working with established groups.

    Paige is hard hitting: "When Christians don't represent Christ with their lives, the world is left wondering if Jesus is really in the business of changing lives at all." (163)

    Paige concludes by reminding us that each life is too valuable to be wasted. "So," she asks, "what will your story be?" (205)

    This is a wonderful book for teens and those who work with them. At the end of each chapter Paige includes an Action Challenge. The questions help in discussing the chapter and give suggestions for action. Paige is certain every person has a God-given mission for life. She has written this book to help people find theirs. This book has the potential for a great impact in the lives of teens. Just make sure your teen and your youth worker at church get their copies.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from a publicity group for the purpose of this review.

    This book is a great read for any young person. You will be able to relate to this humble young woman. Her advice in this easy to read book will help you grow in your relationship with the Lord.

    This is a very practical book with some great examples of living each day for the Lord. Finding your purpose can be so confusing for young people today. The author of this book is still on her journey but what she has learned so far will help each person who reads this.

    The retelling of incidents in the authors' life was well written and easy to read. I thought the book flowed well and came across as a helpful example of how one can use their life to change others. I gave this book 5/5 stars as I thought it was a good read and could be enjoyed by any young person.

    I would like to thank NetGalley and the publisher for the copy of this book I enjoyed reading. I gave an honest review based on my opinion of what I read.
