Diverge: Wake up to the

purposeful life you are

meant to live

Authored by Yakob Kidane Adhanom
Edition: 2nd

Life is full of good versus bad choices. In the United States, about

eight thousand high school students drop out every day.

In colleges as well, more students drop out than graduate. Hayet

is one such teen. He helps others to achieve purpose, but can’t

help himself. His big heart and clear call is eclipsed by prioritizing

fun over fulfillment.

His adoptive parents, the Calebs, expect him to be their new hope.

Their own sons, Tobias and Sanballat, have lost their way, no longer

believing they have a greater spiritual purpose. Instead, they

squabble over money and view Hayet with suspicion and jealousy.

When Hayet is accepted to an Ivy League university, he

thinks he can remain strong. Unfortunately, he loses his own

way in this new environment.

Readers will feel Hayet’s anguish as he grows farther and

farther away from God’s plans. Can Hayet open his heart and

follow the right path once again? Or is he destined to become as

greedy and cruel as his brothers?

Author Yakob K. Adhanom has based Hayet’s story on real

events. He uses Hayet’s journey as the beginning of a greater

discussion about uncovering God’s plan for your own life and

committing yourself to your true purpose.
