Description

Christian parents today feel replaced as the primary influence in their teen’s lives--undermined at school, invaded by the web, and in the dark about what’s really going on. Truth is, says teen expert Jeffrey Dean, parents don’t know the half of it!

In The Fight of Your Life, Dean offers a frank, solutions-oriented plan for parents who want to protect their teens from dangerous choices and guide them toward God’s best–and are ready to fight to make it happen. First Dean gives parents a shocking but invaluable inside view of what teens are up against. Then he helps parents discover their irreplaceable role in their kids’ success. Along the way he tackles hot button issues--sex, partying, porn, cheating and eating disorders--and coaches parents on how to protect and grow a healthy relationship with their teens.

Packed with hope and solid Bible teaching, The Fight of Your Life gives parents the tools they need to help their teens discover their exciting futures as passionate Christ followers and positive, world-changing adults.

Praise For The Fight of Your Life

“Jeffrey Dean reminds us that the culture surrounding today’s teens is changing just as fast as the technology. Parents need to read this book–today.”
Mike Yorkey, co-author of the Every Man's Battle series

“As our culture disengages more and more from Christian faith, it’s becoming harder and harder to follow Christ. This fact is hitting Christian teens very hard. Jeffrey Dean’s book shows parents how to put on their spiritual boxing gloves and fight for their children’s destinies in God. Read this very practical book!”
Bayard Taylor, author of Blah, Blah, Blah: Making Sense of the World's Spiritual Chatter

Praise for This Is Me and Watch This
This Is Me will encourage, inspire, and challenge anyone who dives in. Many girls and women feel too scared or uncomfortable to talk about these issues with a guy. For that reason this book posses a uniqueness that separates it from the pack. Not only is Jeffrey’s approach on a very personal level, it's packed with biblical truths. This book will change your life if you’re a young lady, a mother, or even a guy!”
Josh Reedy, lead singer, DecemberRadio

"In Watch This, Jeffrey uses Biblical truth to encourage teen guys to grow toward authentic manhood.”
Jason Roy, lead singer, Building 429

“Jeffrey Dean has a way of zeroing in on today’s youth culture. He knows teens and how to communicate the love of Jesus to them in a way that captures their attention and convicts their hearts.”
Josh D. McDowell, author and communicator

“Jeffrey Dean’s This Is Me reads like an honest conversation with a trusted big brother. No catchy gimmicks or watered down lessons, just straight talk about the things girls care about most, backed up by scripture, with all the authenticity that today’s teens long for. I can’t wait to share it with the girls in my life!”
Shelley Breen, singer, Point of Grace and author of Life, Love, and Other Mysteries

“In both This Is Me and Watch This, Jeffrey Dean has done a great job of identifying the things that matter most in life and conveying a message of hope for teens. His words are timeless and strong. You’ll love what you read, because it connects with the very heart of God.”
Daniel S. Wolgemuth, President/CEO, Youth for Christ

This Is Me is one of the most thorough, honest, biblical, and compassionate books I have read in quite some time. It’s the kind of message I believe God will use to touch many teenagers across America. Jeffrey Dean is not only a talented musician and communicator, but God has given him a deep love for today’s teenagers, and it shows. I highly recommend his work to you.”
Dawson McAllister, National Talk Show Host and Youth Communicator

“Among student communicators I’ve heard, I rate Jeffrey Dean among the top five. His message is relevant, clear and biblical. He has a unique ability to relate to students about their culture and the choices they face. I highly recommend him.”
Phil Waldrep, Phil Waldrep Ministries, Trinity, Alabama

“Jeffrey is a gifted and passionate speaker who connects with teens at all levels. He is insightful and relevant–speaking into today’s issues with the boldness that contemporary student culture requires.”
Ron Keck, Managing Director, Serendipity House Publishing

“I am always amazed at the energy and enthusiasm that Jeffrey Dean brings to his work with young people. And his enthusiasm is contagious! Jeffrey’s abstinence message has been an extremely valuable resource for our clubs–becoming, in fact, the perfect vehicle to carry this all important message to our young people. I know through first hand conversations that Jeffrey’s message is not only getting into our schools and youth facilities, but it’s being listened to and taken to heart by kids. His presentations have bolstered the self-esteem and self-worth of so many youth throughout our state.”
John Hollis, Director of Development, Boys and Girls Clubs of Delaware

“Jeffrey’s stories are true, his facts are accurate, and his message to teens about making today’s choices count for the future is heard loud and clear.”
— Leslee J. Unruh, President of the Abstinence Clearinghouse
