You Were Made to Make a Difference

You Were Made to Make a Difference is an adaptation of Outlive Your Life by Max Lucado. He and his daughter put together this book for teens, encouraging them that they can and should make a difference in the world. It encourages teens that their role in life is bigger than they might expect, and that they truly can make a difference for God.

This book is fun, interactive, and chock full of stories, valuable resources, and interesting information about practical ways to get out there and make a difference in the lives of others. I feel that this is what sets this book apart from other motivational books for teens – it shows specific needs in the world, which provides opportunity for teens to turn around and put what they have learned into practice.

I feel that this book will help teens to see that God does have a plan for them, and it doesn’t take much to make a difference in this world. All it really takes is letting God start working in your life.

This book is a great gift for teens, but I feel that it would also be worthwhile for any parents of teens to read as well.

I was given this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion from the Book Sneeze program.
