Book Review - "Just One More Thing: Before You Leave Home"

Book Info
About the book: This is the book we wish our parents gave us.
Just One More Thing: Before You Leave Home is a packed guide to help young adults enter life on their own. In the book, the Gudgels use stories, perspectives, and dialogues to discuss 30 indispensable topics to help teens survive, including: worldview, financial challenges, use of time, career moves, moral dilemmas, sex, painful experiences, and spiritual life, among others. Written from a Biblical perspective, the book is more of a guide to making good decisions than a lecture on how to live., It's perfect for a parent and teen to go over together or to give as a thoughtful gift. This is a book they'll reference for years to come.

My Review:
Wow! "Just One More Thing: Before You Leave Home," written by David Gudgel with Bernice Gudgel, is an excellent book for parents with children whom are about to leave home, whether for college, or to live on their own, or making decisions of what to do after completing high school.  This book is filled with short chapters that cover such a wide variety of topics that are all so important to be touched upon and discussed and are from a Biblical perspective.  These topics include paying for college, gambling, premarital sex, decisions regarding finances, finding a job and career decisions.  And these are only some of the topics!  This is a book that will be a great reference and also starting point for having discussions with your teenagers in regards to some topics that may be uncomfortable or difficult, but so necessary. At this stage and age, teenagers are looked at as soon to be adults and many feel as if they are ready to go out into the world; I know personally looking back, I really was not as prepared as I thought and wish I had had this book. I highly recommend this book  for all parents!
