About the Book

Life is full of great experiences. But what have you learned from them? Are they helping you become the person you want to be? Are any preventing you from accomplishing your dreams?

James Quinn uses these provocative questions to guide us through fifteen universal life experiences:

Birth Family Love Faith Friendship Service Envy Anger Greed Fear Forgiveness Kindness Joy Hope Death

These life experiences help you discover new strengths about yourself that may surprise, or even, shock you.

Life experiences are past, present, and future, but regardless of when they occur, they can and do change our lives. The challenge is to use our experiences to grow in healthy ways.

Fifteen Real-Life Experiences: A Journey in Christian Living provides down-to-earth advice on how we can use our experiences to guide us in our Christian faith.

Book includes questions and action plans for individual and group reflection.

"Dr. Quinn has brought before us fifteen life experiences which we all encounter in ways that enable us to come to grip with the value they offer. It is one of the most helpful tools I have seen both personally and for group interaction. Everyone could profit from spending time with his insight."

-W.D. "Dub" Rogers, PhD, Family Christian Counseling

"Life can become our greatest teacher if only we ask the right questions. James Quinn has applied the teaching style of Proverbs to remind us of the power that God has placed into our world as we pay attention to the lessons life can teach."

-Dr. Guy C. Ames, District Superintendent of Ardmore, Oklahoma Conference, United Methodist Church, and Senior Pastor, Chapel Hill United Methodist Church (1994–2006)

"This is a reflective, thought-provoking look at how our life experiences and Christian faith shape and should shape who we are as God's children."

-Suzann Wade, Diaconal Minister and Christian Educator
