This Changes Everything by Jaquelle Crowe Ferris

Five stars

The teen years have been hijacked—by fashion, music, movies, and games; by the pressures of school, peers, and society; and by superficial expectations set by the world. But there is something more glorious than all these influences that has the power to change the life of a teenager: the gospel. Written by a teenager for teenagers, This Changes Everything is a deeply theological yet practical and accessible book on how the gospel radically transforms every aspect of the teen years, including pursuing relationships, managing time, combating personal sin, and cultivating healthy habits. In a culture awash with low expectations for young people, this book exhorts teenagers to embrace a gospel-centered perspective on their lives and pursue wholehearted devotion to Christ now.

Such an encouraging and inspiring book for teens! I loved how the author wrote this book in an encouraging tone, almost as if she was sitting across the table from you. It was so inspiring in everything she said from how to better use your time, have better relationships, and more!

I think more teens need to read books like this. The teen years are truly some of the best years of your life, but too often they’re wasted. This book is a call to stand up and let the gospel change your life-specifically your teen years. Don’t waste these precious years that are cultivating the rest of your life. Live a life pleasing to God!

“If you’re a Jesus follower, it means you’re there to love your church, to serve it, to worship with it, and to be accountable to it…. Age doesn’t divide. We are all the church.”

― Jaquelle Crowe, This Changes Everything: How the Gospel Transforms the Teen Years
