My Life Unscripted by Tricia Goyer

About the book:

Today is my day for the My Life Unscripted blog tour which began September 16th and runs through October 26th...

Here's the scoop:

The Facts of Life was teen girl drama at its finest. Yet today's teens know life if NOT like the movies. Real life means real drama ... something teens face on a daily basis. Yet, do teens have to let their lives be molded by every wave of emotion?

My Life, Unscripted empowers teen girls to write their own script and direct their own life by using God's Script as a guide.

My thoughts:

This book is just so cool. Very guides the reader into assessing her life by looking at it from a director's point of view. If your life were scripted out for a movie, what would it look like? It makes you think out your actions and shows how letting God be the scriptwriter, you will have a blockbuster life.

Unique and very today. I'm going to send out my copy to one of my teenager friends. I'm sure it will be a great gift for any girl aged 12-21!

All the books she's written and accolades and awards she's received pale in comparison to Tricia's greatest joy: her family.
