Description of Try Higher - The Call to Every College Student by Trevor Francis
College is a major opportunity for trying new things: new friends, new courses, new ideas, and even a new you. College is the chance to stand up, branch out, and discover your unique purpose. But what new things will you try in college? And what happens to all the things you've learned along the way about yourself, your values, and your faith? Will you just accept whatever college life asks you to try? Or will you accept the call to try higher? "I wish I had read Try Higher before I went to college. In fact, I wish every young person today would read it, study it, and apply the truths to their lives. It will help students avoid the common pitfalls of college and also experience tremendous success in their social, academic and spiritual lives. It's a must-read." - Sean McDowell, speaker, teacher, and co-author of Apologetics for a New Generation "What a great concept for every college student to read Trevor Francis challenges college students to go beyond just wondering "What should I do with my life?" and ask the better question 'What does God want me to do with my life?'" - Dr. Joe White, President of Kanakuk Kamps "There are very few books that speak to the struggles faced during college. Trevor has helped fill this chasm in a way that is not only practical, but also gives spiritually mature advice. In my opinion, the more students that get a hold of this and read it the better " - Chuck Bomar (CollegeLeader.org), author of College Ministry 101: A Guide to Working With 18-25 Year Olds "Try Higher beautifully blends practicality and spirituality for the college student. This should be required reading for every student, and recommended reading for everyone else - Dr. Tom Blackaby, author of The Family God Uses, Encounters with God Daily Bible, co-author The Man God Uses, International Director, Blackaby Ministries International, firstname.lastname@example.org Try Higher is a must-read for every high school student preparing for college and every college student in the midst of their experience. It integrates all aspects of the college experience and calls every college student to spiritual leadership. Try Higher will help you gain a better understanding of how God can truly be a part of your college experience and actually improve it. It grants a far-reaching perspective about academics, relationships, social involvement, as well as the spiritual choices you can make to help you get the best from the new things you do try. It's the "go-to" guide book for college.
