The topics are contemporary and compelling; these are subjects that affect our world today and those for which people are seeking genuine guidance. Her words reveal an understanding of the depth of emotions in our world, as she explains situations through her own personal experiences. Yet, throughout the book, there is a solid and strong emphasis on the Word of God.
The author has effectively bridged the gap between the natural and the spiritual world. Her complete reliance on the power of God brings a taste of heaven to some of today's bitter situations. Sexual promiscuity, peer pressure, disease and even crime are discussed with a bold and frank style. Readers will know there is nothing outside of God's reach that He cannot restore and make right again.
The author clearly and consistently shows the path to an abundant life in Christ. She freely acknowledges the pitfalls, but gives praise to the One who can keep people on track. An added layer of spiritual enlightenment comes from the poems that accompany many of these essays. Intense and extremely insightful, the words of Aaron L. Slaton provide a strong commentary to his sister's counsel.
Encouraging, yet filled with many hard-hitting exhortations, this book speaks with a contemporary language and a timeless commitment to love and truth.

The wrong path can lead to regrettable consequences!

One of the most touching stories in the book is about the author's brief encounter with Mike, a sprightly and carefree youth of seventeen. A bond develops between them, notwithstanding the hesitation in the boy's mind about being close with a "church girl". But before the relationship blooms it is cut short by a tragic road accident, which takes away Mike, adding one more member in his family, whose life was cut short. Despite the devastation, author Acacia takes succor in one thing that Mike had made peace with God as his dying moments revealed. "People die young everyday.
