Young & Beardless

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!

My Thoughts:
John Luke in "Young & Beardless" is very open about his faith, which is awesome. I love how he is intentional about living life in such a way that pleases God. He is an encouragement to young people and those further in the race following God. I love how he is a dreamer, curious and even hilarous in this book, but most of all having a heart set on God. I think this book is perfect for young men, especially in their twenties or even those in their teens. I really enjoyed getting to learn more about John Luke and loved how at the end of each chapter he had questions to "Think About it." Thank you to Thomas Nelson for providing me a complimentary copy for review. I was not compensated for a positive review.
