One fact is clear today: we live in a self-centered world. Young Christians often want to live up to God's purpose for them, but the pressure brought on by friends, relationships, the media, and future plans make it hard to always choose the virtuous, peaceful path that will lead them toward God. Thankfully, there is a way to develop a Christ-centered life, and it all starts with focusing on God's Word. In his life-changing book, Rick Flores shares what he has learned in his years as a youth pastor about the hurdles young Christians face, and what they can do to keep their eyes on the life they want. He invites readers to think about some of the most important decisions they will every make: - Who will you serve? - What voice will guide your life? - What will you do when faced with temptation? - How will you prepare for love and marriage? - What kind of legacy will you leave? Young Christians will discover decision points to guide their lives and will learn to consider the long-term when weighing consequences. Perfect for personal growth or group studies and classrooms, young men and women will also realize the wealth of insight and guidance available in God's Word. Turn your focus toward Christ, and change your life today!

Whether we're buying a pair of jeans, ordering a cup of coffee, selecting a long-distance carrier, applying to college, choosing a doctor, or setting up a 401(k), everyday decisions—both big and small—have become increasingly complex due to the overwhelming abundance of choice with which we are presented. As Americans, we assume that more choice means better options and greater satisfaction. But beware of excessive choice: choice overload can make you question the decisions you make before you even make them, it can set you up for unrealistically high expectations, and it can make you blame yourself for any and all failures. In the long run, this can lead to decision-making paralysis, anxiety, and perpetual stress. And, in a culture that tells us that there is no excuse for falling short of perfection when your options are limitless, too much choice can lead to clinical depression. In The Paradox of Choice, Barry Schwartz explains at what point choice—the hallmark of individual freedom and self-determination that we so cherish—becomes detrimental to our psychological and emotional well-being. In accessible, engaging, and anecdotal prose, Schwartz shows how the dramatic explosion in choice—from the mundane to the profound challenges of balancing career, family, and individual needs—has paradoxically become a problem instead of a solution. Schwartz also shows how our obsession with choice encourages us to seek that which makes us feel worse. By synthesizing current research in the social sciences, Schwartz makes the counter intuitive case that eliminating choices can greatly reduce the stress, anxiety, and busyness of our lives. He offers eleven practical steps on how to limit choices to a manageable number, have the discipline to focus on those that are important and ignore the rest, and ultimately derive greater satisfaction from the choices you have to make.
