No More Wasted Years ~ Olivia Brodock



"College is not your only option. Life is full of choices. You cannot recapture your youth, so shouldn't you spend it wisely?"

Are you a young woman theoretically done with the 'first half' of your education? Is the extended family pressuring you to 'do something with your life'?  Do you feel there is more to your single years than accumulating $25,000 in debt just for an impressive degree on paper? Then this is your book!

Olivia Brodock gives young women hope, inspiration, purpose, and determination in this short but powerful read on how young ladies can advance their future into amazing productivity without a college degree. She suggests ways a young woman can serve her family, community, and God using her gifts and finding real meaning and joy in her single years.

It is difficult to find life-instructive books that hold your interest and truly instruct you. This is one of those few books that keeps you turning pages! I was riveted the whole time and walked away so refreshed and inspired to do bigger things.

In the big scheme of things, college does not always fulfill the void everyone seeks to fill, and there is far more to life as a Christian than waiting on a husband. Brodock reveals the biblical secret to being truly fulfilled in those single days. That one secret...is serving others.

"No More Wasted Years is a glimpse into a different world, a brave new breed of women who are not afraid of being different, who will not be shoved into the stereotype of ‘normal‘." 
Olivia Brodock

Hi Bria~
I am new to your blog, and I really enjoy learning about new books to read- so this is wonderful! I heard about this book last week over at Raising Homemakers and wondered how good it was, so I am really excited to see that you enjoyed it. I will have to check it out soon and buy it. I love books about those after high school years and what that entails instead of the traditional college route, especially Joyfully at Home. Anyways, I hope you have a good evening.

Blessings to you,
Libby

If you have to say this in the first place: “there is far more to life as a Christian than waiting on a husband”, it doesn’t really sound convincing at all. Not at all.

If education is just a piece of paper, then why do you think people are striving so hard (not just financially) to get a degree? It seems like you believe you have figured something out than no one else has. Why do underestimate people in general? Do you usually think highly of yourself? Why is that? Have you ever asked yourself that question?

May I ask why you read books? They cost (unless you go to a library, or borrow books by a friend/relative). Sure, real literature (no garbage literature, thank you very much) and a real decent education cost – that’s whether we like it or not. Thanks to a basic decent education I knew how to write a book review when I was 15. I could also master at least a second language when I was 14. At 18 I had already studied a third language for 5 years. I wasn’t special. Many people at high school could master more languages.

Sure, education is pricy, but it’s worth it. If you had a basic decent education you would know how to write a book review. You would also be able to make at least a half sentence of a second language correct (unfortunately I remember the title of your former blog).

It’s not the first time I come across someone who scoffs at higher education. It’s quite expected from someone who doesn’t even have a high school diploma. It’s also quite expected from someone who dedicates her whole blog to book reviews, yet doesn’t know how to write one.

You could think at a higher level if you just learned how to actually read a book; how to examine it critically. Learn to read and not just "read".
