That spring, I trusted Christ as Lord and Savior and latched on to His journey. As an avid reader and eager Christian, I anxiously sought any material on faith-related topics. More specifically, I was craving material from people in my stage of life. It became quickly apparent, however, that collegiate voices had been overlooked, or at least left untold. This seemed a dangerous void. So with God’s provision, I setout to write a book that would tell the stories of common struggles Christians face in college everywhere. Thus began the vision of Can You Keep Your Faith in College. ” — Abbie Smith From the Trade Paperback edition.

Viele Wege führen zu Gott! Mitch Albom ist überrascht, als Albert Lewis, der betagte Rabbi seiner Heimatgemeinde in New Jersey, ihn darum bittet, bei seinem Tod die Trauerrede für ihn zu halten. Er versteht nicht, weshalb der Rabbi ihn dafür ausgewählt hat, denn den Bezug zum Glauben hat er schon lange verloren. Schließlich willigt er unter der Bedingung ein, den Rabbi besser kennenlernen zu dürfen. Und so erfährt er Albert Lewis während der kommenden acht Jahre bei ihren Treffen nicht nur als einen engagierten Mann der Kirche, sondern auch als einen ebenso klugen wie humorvollen Menschen. In dieser Zeit begegnet Mitch Albom in Detroit jedoch auch Henry Covington, einem Pastor mit krimineller Vergangenheit, dessen Schicksal eine fast unmöglich scheinende Wandlung erfahren hat. Die beiden Männer lehren Mitch Albom, die Welt und den Glauben mit neuen Augen zu sehen – und er nimmt aus den Gesprächen mit ihnen kostbare Anstöße und Erkenntnisse mit, die sein Leben verändern.

This book consists of basic principles focusing on morals and values of what was once considered characteristics of a true lady. This new era has greatly strayed away from the foundation taught by our ancestors. Basic rules shared at the kitchen table years ago with little girls, has since been lost for many. The goal here is to re-establsih and refresh the principles that were once second nature for some and caught on by others. Times have changed yes; however, the basic foundation of morals and values should not ever. I once read a quote, "If you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything." If there is no guide or direction then chaos is inevitable. In this book, I discuss topics related to respect, manners, etiquette, relationships, children, and sisterhood to name a few. It is my hope that women both young and old will be enlightened, encouraged, and inspired to pass the torch to become better citizens and contributors to the world around us. This book should be used as a guide and reference code of conduct to assist in opening conversations concerning values for today's woman. This book can be a powerful tool for years to come.
