Song lyrics invade the teenage mind 4-5 hours every day. Former rock star and author of KISS WHAT? Nick Costello claims, "Music is perhaps the most powerful influence in a teenagers life. Teenagers seek an identity through their music. Music lyrics can intensify problems a teenager faces. It fuels their inner struggles which can manifest in outward bad behavior or wrong, unhealthy decisions. It can lure them away from worshiping God with all their heart."
WARNING: The saying goes, "Garbage in, garbage out." Song lyrics can send messages into easily influenced young minds, that can negatively mold a teenagers attitude, belief system, values and world view!
Christian parenting gets big help in equipping their teenager to understand God's viewpoint on song lyrics and what is acceptable to God. But KISS WHAT? isn't just another book addressing the issue of teenagers and lyrics. It also helps teenagers grow in spiritual maturity teaching them how to resist peer pressure, take a stand for their faith, trust God in difficult times and much more.
Teenagers say, "I don't listen to the lyrics." Nick challenges that teenage viewpoint when it comes to song lyrics and many more deceptive thinking habits of teenagers. Many teenagers are looking for answers to their life struggles and questions through their music. Nick aims teenagers to look to Christ for all their needs and have a true heart of worship for God!
A must read for every Christian teenager and needed teaching tool in Christian parenting and youth ministry today for helping teenagers attain spiritual maturity.
