I went through the books on BookLookBloggers to decide what I would review this month. Young & Beardless captured my interest with the title and the photos on the front - The Search for God, Purpose, and a Meaningful Life. Once I started reading the book I realized it was a story from John Luke Robertson who is a part of the Duck Dynasty Family.
Book Summary: John Luke Robertson, may be young and beardless, but he has a lot to say about growing up and discovering your purpose. John Luke Robertson, the oldest son of Willie and Korie Robertson, and brother of Dancing with the Stars sensation, Sadie Robertson, shares his story of what it’s like to grow up as a Robertson and all the fun and craziness that entails, as well as what he has learned as he has stepped out into his own unique experiences. He also shares what it’s like to navigate the walk from boyhood to becoming a man. Topics in this book include friendship, kindness, dreaming big, embracing your God-given uniqueness, taking chances, and choosing mentors.
John Luke speaks frequently on dreams (how to build a dream for your life), schemes (how to plan for your dream to come true), and building teams (choosing the people around you who will become a team that helps make your dream come true through their support, honesty, and care). He will incorporate these important guidelines into the book, ultimately helping young people learn how to find and pursue a clear-cut purpose in their lives.
Teens and young adults will enjoy reading his story, and they will benefit by reading Robertson’s wisdom and perspective on how to grow up and live out your purpose. And, with the Robertsons, this book is sure to be fun!
Throughout the book he finishes each chapter with a summary of a story he has read. He shares what meaning it has provided in his life and how it would be beneficial to apply some of their tips to your life. One of his tips was to create a toolbox for your future. Add things that inspire and motivate you. Another question he suggests you ask yourself is, "Can you picture yourself 10 years from now?" Name some of the things you'll have accomplished by then. This will give you a better plan and allow you to be more focused on your goals.
