    "Batterson shares his story and that of his ministry, and while the stories are not always relevant to his audience (which he admits), his sincerity comes through. And unlike some other books of this ilk, this title does not so much make fanciful promises as it encourages readers to really consider their lives and what they need rather than what they want, and it shows them paths to peace and happiness. There are workbook-like activities at the end of each chapter, and because of the relatability of the message, kids may be moved to try them." - Booklist
