Shipwrecked in L.A.: Finding Hope and Purpose When Your Dreams Crash
Also available as an E-BOOK!
Most young adults encounter at least one "shipwreck" during their twenties. Everything you think you know about yourself, your life, your future, and even your faith suddenly breaks apart. You're left scrambling to construct a lifeboat that will take you back to the shore.
Christin Taylor knew how her life was going to turn out. She was going to be a missionary to the Hollywood film industry. But just eight weeks after moving to L.A., her hopes and dreams were shattered. The next four years found Christin circling around, into, and back out of the film industry, until she finally found her way home.
As Christin shares a compelling story about her life and work in Burbank, Hollywood, and Beverly Hills, she interacts with the best research on young-adult formation and development, guiding young adults through this tumultuous time as they try to pick up the pieces and find hope for the future.
Young adults will learn to hear and follow the internal voice of the Holy Spirit; and they will embrace the new meaning, future, faith, and sense of self that God has been creating in them all along.
Christin Taylor lives in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, with her husband, Dwayne, and their children, Noelle and Nathan. They have lived and worked with college students since 2008. Christin teaches writing at Gettysburg College. Her work has appeared in both online and print journals, as well as the anthology Just Moms: Teaching Justice in an Unjust World.
