Book Review - Wake Up, Generation

Wake Up, Generation will revolutionize the life of any young adult seeking purpose, passion, and direction. As a growing generation is characterized by a lifestyle of apathy and indifference, Paige uses biblical teaching and shares relatable stories to help young people break the chains and discover the God-driven mission for their lives. Readers will understand their life's sacred purpose and wake up to the needs of the world around them. Once they realize how their own story fits into God's design they can become equipped to live out the passionate, fulfilling life God intended.


Paige Omartian is a speaker and recording artist whose battle with cancer as a child led her on a remarkable
journey inspiring others to grasp the preciousness of life and live out their purpose.

She has traveled the country sharing her music and story and was featured on Bath and Body Work's 2005 Christmas CD supporting the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Paige was interviewed on the "Today Show" and was the speaker and TV host for the ministry iShine. She released her debut rock album, "Wake Up", in 2009.

Paige and her husband, music producer and songwriter Chris Omartian, make their home in Nashville with their lovable Miniature Australian Shepherd, Peppers. 
From the very first page, this book will draw you into Paige's story. Her enthusiasm for life and the Lord is just contagious! This book was written for the 20-something generation but any age can benefit from reading this inspiring book! 
Paige first shares her testimony which had me in tears yet also laughing uncontrollably at some of her antics in the hospital. The apple juice/chocolate incident made me laugh harder than I can remember doing in a long time! It was a classic prank!  That's was so great about this book. Paige certainly has gone through more than a lot of us at such a young age, yet her humor and love for the life God has given her just shines through!

There are so many inspiring quotes and beautiful Scriptures that she shares about really living our life fully. I also loved that at the end of each chapter she has questions that prompt you into getting into action in your life and helping you examine your life. These are really helpful.  She also has a personality test to help you find your gifts so you know what gifts the Lord has given you. Do you have a gift for Discernment, Mercy or Teaching? This book will help you find your gifts and how you can use them for the Lord.

Paige also shares other inspiring stories that will have you amazed and (again) inspired. The whole book is just excellent, and as you can tell from my review, inspiring! I highly recommend this book for young people - however - I also recommend it for any age group that wants to live life to the fullest for God!
