There are a lot of things holding teens back from going out there into the world to do something wonderful: Fear, peer pressure, abuse, anger, doubts, low self-esteem and an uncertainty of who they really are. But for every problem every teen struggles with in their quest to live life for God, there is a solution in Christine Caine’s fantastic book, Undaunted. But what if people laugh at me? But how will I know what to do? I don’t have any money. I don’t think I can be strong enough. These are just some of the excuses holding teens back from going after what they want to do with their lives, from answering that Call to serve. And in Undaunted, Christine holds all of those teens by their shoulders, looks them in the eye and says, “I used to be just like you. But God made miracles happen for me to help me do what I had to do. He will make miracles happen for you, too.”
It’s not very often we come across someone so in touch with God, so devoted to her faith that miracles really do happen. Christine is not afraid to pray, even when she may be afraid to face giants or take a leap of faith. But by turning to God every time, she found a way because God made a way for her. This is the kind of person Christine Caine is, and readers find out just why her message is so important to pay attention to when they read this book. Read about how Christine eventually found a sense of identity, an idea of who she was, despite coming into the world abandoned and unwanted. Read about how she found the courage to flee abusive relationships and completely surrender to God in order to survive a terrifying ordeal. By reading her stories, readers will know just who Christine is, how it’s possible for her to have such a strong and endearing relationship with God and why she has moved mountains and faced giants to do something wonderful with her life.
Reading Undaunted was like taking a self-help course. This book really answered so many questions and it was like a light in the darkness. I dare young readers who have faith in God to read this book and not feel just a tiny bit inspired by it. I was definitely inspired. This book is an amazing guide to help troubled, lost teens find their way through the mucky waters of doubt and fear toward something brilliant and magnificent: Their futures.
Christine Caine has been through a lot of hard times in life, but just as God uses something small or bad or unimportant for something good and wonderful, so, too, did Christine take everything she survived and used it to create something wonderful with her life. She beat the odds, faced her fears and did what everybody else called was “impossible.” She did it – and you can, too. Christine will guide you through the anxieties, fears and doubts and show you just how to take them on and become a stronger person. The kind of warrior that God meant for you to be.
Christine Caine offers life-transforming insights about how not only to overcome the challenges, wrong turns, and often painful circumstances we all experience, but also to actually grow from those experiences and be equipped and empowered to help others. Using her own dramatic life story, Caine shows how God rescued her from a life where she was unnamed, unwanted, and unqualified. She tells how she overcame abuse, abandonment, fears, and other challenges to go on a mission of adventure, fueled by faith and filled with love and courage. Her personal stories inspire readers to hear their name called, just as Christine heard her own---'You are beloved. You are the hope. You are chosen'---to go into a dark and troubled world, knowing each of us possess all it takes to bring hope, create change, and live completely for Christ. Part inspirational tale, part manifesto to stir readers to lives of adventure, Undaunted shows the way with spiritual wisdom and insight.
