Preparing Your Faith For College - Landing Safely, Growing With God
Eden & Katherine Foord
Skydiving is an apt metaphor for going to college. In Preparing Your Faith for College, readers work through the process of preparation for the leap into the great unknown as it applies to one's faith.
The authors, both experienced youth ministers familiar with the needs and challenges facing high school and college students, present practical concerns and suggestions related to the role of faith in making the transition from high school to college. Using a step-by-step approach based on preparations for making a jump from an airplane, Preparing Your Faith for College helps the student to prepare carefully for the adventure of going to college, including developing and nurturing one's faith. Edgy chapter titles (“Choose Your Landing Site: Target--College” and “Pull the Ripcord: Your Faith” are two examples) introduce topics such as choosing a school, dealing with anxiety, making college connections even before arriving on campus, and making the Catholic faith one's own, not just your parents' faith.
