ABOUT THE BOOK
In Before You Go, Gerald Fadayomi speaks directly to students preparing to leave high school behind and moving into a new season of college and “adulting.” This short guide includes ten ideas that help students prepare for what’s ahead, letters of advice from real college freshmen, and questions to help them process what they’ve read.
“If I had these conversations before I went, I would have known I wasn’t the only one feeling this way…” —College freshman
Parents will want to read this book to prepare for some important conversations to have before their senior leaves home. Student leaders will want this book to use in small groups.
WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING
“As I looked through Before You Go, I kept thinking of teenagers I want to read this book now or in the future when they graduate from high school. My own kids are at the top of that list. I’m confident you’re going to have the same urge to get this book to every high school senior or college freshman you know.”
—Kara Powell, executive director of the Fuller Youth Institute and co-author of Growing Young
“There’s nothing quite like hearing from someone who’s been there, and Gerald Fadayomi has been there. Before You Go is filled with the kind of practical wisdom and advice every teen needs before they go to college, and before they decide to leave their faith too. I’m grateful for this book.”
—Carey Nieuwhof, founding pastor of Connexus Community Church and author of Didn’t See It Coming
