Next Step: You've Accepted Jesus...Now What? by DeeDee Lake is a thoughtful and practical guide for Christian living for teenage girls. The main message from Jesus Christ is to accept Him as Savior. And that's a wonderful first step. The next question is, where do you go from here? If you're a new teen Christian, you may have lots of questions about what to do, how to grow in your faith, how to live for Christ, etc. Every Christian has to start off as a "baby", so you aren't alone. But how do you manage in the real world? In addition to the Bible itself, Lake's devotional will lead you to the answers.
This self-help Christian guide is the ideal, compact length that gets to the answers quickly. The advice is practical, not convoluted, and you'll find prayers and letters from the author that will help you. For example, you'll learn what the Bible says about you and who you are as a Christian. The overall tone of the book is hopeful, positive, and enlightening. I appreciate the actionable tips she offers, with resources included. The shareable content is just right to supplement teen Bible studies or youth groups. I like Lake's message explaining how all Christians have room to grow, especially new ones, but I think that holds true for older ones too. I also like how the author advises putting Christ first, and that growth in the Christian walk doesn't happen overnight. Other tips include being real, knowing your worth to God, the benefits of clean living, setting boundaries, and many more. For quick but meaningful advice to new Christians looking for their next move, Next Step: You've Accepted Jesus...Now What? by DeeDee Lake is a perfect choice.
