Item Description...
Through the metaphor of screenwriting, explores the various relationships in a teenager's life, including her friends, enemies, parents, boyfriends, herself, and God.

Publishers Description

Using the metaphor of screenwriting, My Life, Unscripted explores relationships in every teenage girl's life-with herself, her friends and enemies, her parents, guys, and with God.

Real-life scripts, screenwriting terms, and timely topics, make this an interesting read for teen girls as they delve into their own inner struggles and outward relationships. They'll also learn the importance of "scripting" their own responses BEFORE challenging life-situations arise so they are able to think about, pray about, and consider how to face these situations before the scene begins. By contrasting real-life with TV or movies, teens will understand they don't have to get caught up in the drama.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Where were books like this when I was a teen?!  Jan 13, 2009
Tricia Goyer's book opens a way for parents to create discussions with their teens. Not only will teens benefit from reading this book, but parents, too.
These subjects can be difficult to talk about, but with Tricia's book as a tool and guide, parents can approach a myriad of topics using her book as a sprinboard to begin talking about those tough topics.
Tricia's transparency about her struggles show teens that even old folks had stuff to deal with that made life challenging. The sidebars written by teens shows teen readers (and their parents) that things are different and yet much the same...just at a faster pace.
While I'm glad my teen made it safely through those years, I sorta wish I had a teen to give this book...almost!
Great Gift for a Teen  Dec 10, 2008
MYView: Tricia Goyer candidly lays out the challenges she encountered in her teen years for all to read. That takes guts!

This is a great book to hand to your daughter or son giving them another real and vulnerable adult's point-of-view on life and growing up.

Tricia's unique story format and her willingness to be honest may shed a little more light in what can be a dim place for teens. Knowing adults had challenges growing up and knowing that adults still need God to write their scripts may help teens to relate to us.

I appreciate the author's honesty because she could have hid her experience in a piece of fiction, but she didn't. And her readers will be blessed because of it!

When asked how other moms can share their experiences and past mistakes, Tricia states:

"Well, they could each write a book about their teen years...just
kidding! But for those moms out there...maybe your teen years were not as
drama-filled as mine. Or, if they were, maybe you are fearful of sharing them
with your teen. The truth is, teens learn best not with information and
knowledge, but rather by hearing life examples and understanding how decisions
can affect all parts of our lives. So, time to get brave, Mom. Open your heart
and share what worked and what didn't . It just might help your daughter write a
better script for herself."

I totally agree! My parents were very open with their mistakes and never led us to believe they were perfect. That made them very approachable. It's a vital parenting skill I use today with my son.

(Oh no, I just gave my parents some props! Let's just keep it our little secret. ;) Just kidding.
Great Book For Teen Girls!  Jun 27, 2008
My Life Unscripted is what I would call a 20 week devotional for teens ages 14 to 18. Each chapter has a script that has a situation that is either actually from Tricia's own life - or one that she has made up but is very common to teen girls. Then, there is discussion on the script. Next comes the Intermission - where the script/situation is related to a similar situation in the Bible. There are usually questions that the girls are to ponder and write down their thoughts. Also in each chapter is a section called "My Script" which has comments from teens on the subject/issue discussed in the chapter. Woven in every chapter are bible verses, strategies for evaluating situations and the way we react. I found the scripts very relevant and interesting - I was looking forward to the script in each chapter. I like how the script was tied to a similar situation in the Bible - showing that the Bible is as relevant today as it was hundreds or thousands of years ago. The goal seems to be to get young women to THINK about their choices - before they make them. To THINK about God when making daily decisions. To think about possible consequences if they make their choices without bringing God into the decision making process.
The way the book is laid out makes it entertaining to read. The chapters go by quickly and you look forward to the next script. It really gets you to think about how you've been making our choices and learning how to make better choices - choices based on what God would have us to do.
Tricia meets them where they are...  Jan 11, 2008
As a high school teacher for the past twenty years, I wish I could give this book to every girl who steps over the threshold into my classroom. Bombarded by media hype and smothered by peer pressure and angst, so many girls want and need practical and timely advice. They fear making the wrong decisions, not realizing that deciding not to decide may be the worst decision of all. Trish's advice meets them where they are, and she doesn't pretend sex, drugs, alcohol, pregnancy, and abortion don't exist in their world. As a teacher, I most appreciate Trish's approach to guiding them to write their own scripts. She doesn't give them the "right" answers; she leads them to search for the script to guide their lives in ways that will make God smile.

Mentor Across the Miles for Teen Girls!!!  Nov 12, 2007
My Life Unscripted: Who's Writing Your Life?

Tricia Goyer, I'm sure, wouldn't want the credit for the Inspiration brought forth in this amazing book for teenage girls, but her obedience in having shared her story will bless, strengthen, and encourage anyone who completes this study. God has given her the courage to boldly share her "unscripted" life to mentor, teach, and provide godly alternatives to hopefully thwart others from the same mistakes she made, while sharing the joy of making right choices!

Tricia addresses topics in a unique way, and, if you're not careful, you'll learn a bit about scriptwriting. :) She also includes "scripts" from teenage girls across the USA. Topics covered are peer pressure, fear, those hard-to-love folks, sex, abortion ... She doesn't back down, and that's what our youth need today - examples of Strong Christians grounded in the WORD willing to take the stand for Christ, sharing His neverfailing love for us - no matter what!!

Thank you for your obedience and your boldness, Tricia!!! I pray lives are changed and that final script in the book becomes a reality a thousand times over!!
