“Keeping It Real,” is an amazing book of poems, addressing the problems and challenges that teens face daily, whether it’s with a friend or within us.  Keeping It Real teaches teenagers that they are never alone because God is always here.  It lets them know that they have the power to choose to make Godly decisions.  We either honor or disgrace Jesus, our family, our community, and ourselves with the decisions that we make.  These poems are creative and the real deal, with topics like:  being virtuous and having self-respect, to peer pressure and doing the right thing for yourself.  This poem book guides and encourages teens to face problems and challenges they have in a Godly manner, finding out if they don’t know already, that we are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus who loves us.  If God be for us, who can be against us?
