Jaylon Moore is a senior at Jackson State University, majoring in Social Work. Recently he wrote a new book entitled College Daze.
College Daze is a religious self-help book geared towards millennials and college students who have a strong desire to stay grounded in Christ. During his time at Jackson State University Moore has been very vocal about his passion for the ministry and using his life to inspire others.
Moore told HBCU Buzz that he was inspired to write College Daze because “there [was] a need for young adults to stay grounded in who God has called them to be at a young age.”
Moore says that the book discusses pressing issues that many college students face such as: choosing the right friends, balancing Greek life while maintaining a relationship with God as well as finding one’s purpose.
This book seems to be one that anyone at any HBCU can relate to. This book comes from a genuine, authentic place and will resonate with many. Moore explained that he never, in fact, planned to write a book:
“I started to journal about my experiences and God began to speak to me about how to truly stay in His will while in college.” He went on to say, “There are so many young adults living beneath their means simply because they have let people and things distract them from who God has called them to be. I believe that God is raising up a generation of people who are truly after him and who will be effective in the world today.”
We are very excited about College Daze and look forward to seeing what Moore will do next. If you are in the Jackson, Mississippi area you can meet Moore at his book signing. On Thursday, November 10th Jaylon will be signing copies of his book, College Daze at Anderson United Methodist Church beginning at 6:30.
The church is located at 6205 Hanging Moss Rd. You can also order a copy of Moore’s book, College Daze on Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com.
