Temptation abounds in this collegiate world immersed in the world. So, can you keep a God-centered, adventure-based, Christ-driven life throughout college? Abbie Smith found the answer to be a resounding YES! Packed with encouragement specifically for these trying years, Can You Keep Your Faith in College compiles experiences shared by students from more than thirty-five schools across the nation. You’re not alone in the struggle to maintain the faith you carried with you when you first set foot on campus. The book targets pertinent issues including, “The Transition,” academics, dorm life, peer pressure, extracurricular activities, sports, Greek life, dating, studying abroad, racial relations, and “God’s Surprise Encounters.” Don’t let your faith whittle away; build it up! It’s what defines you.

Story Behind the Book

“Beginning my freshman year in college, God began drawing my heart to His. That spring, I trusted Christ as Lord and Savior and latched on to His journey. As an avid reader and eager Christian, I anxiously sought any material on faith-related topics. More specifically, I was craving material from people in my stage of life. It became quickly apparent, however, that collegiate voices had been overlooked, or at least left untold. This seemed a dangerous void. So with God’s provision, I setout to write a book that would tell the stories of common struggles Christians face in college everywhere. Thus began the vision of Can You Keep Your Faith in College. ” — Abbie Smith

About the Author

Abbie Smith was raised in Atlanta, Georgia. Though she grew up in a loving home, religion was never a priority. Even through her Catholic high school, the concept of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ remained silent. Abbie attended Emory University and accepted Christ in the spring of her freshman year. After four busy years of campus ministry involvement and playing on the tennis team, she graduated in May of 2003 majoring in religion. Abbie is a member of North Point Community Church and resides in Atlanta, Georgia. Her passions include writing, discipleship, and spending time in God’s great outdoors.
