Even people with great intelligence and great experience can fall victim to bad choices. The only way to avoid those bad choices is to understand the keys to making smart ones.

Why Smart People Make Dumb Choices takes you on a journey with some of the Bible's smartest people--such as Abraham and Sarah, David, and Peter--who also made some not-so-smart decisions. By looking at the choices they made, readers will discover the keys to avoiding similar mistakes and will learn principles that will keep them on the road to good decision-making.

Why Smart People Make Dumb Choices provides ten keys to making smart decisions, including

  • establishing the right relationships
  • gathering the right information
  • setting the right priorities
  • choosing the right pathway

The principles of smart decision-making found in this book will be helpful to anyone confronted with important choices--from the housewife and mom trying to manage the challenges of her busy day to the college student choosing his or her friends to the leader trying to figure out the best direction for his organization.

Review:

"I was thrilled to read Deborah Smith Pegues' newest publication. It was so very timely for me personally. I had been struggling with the very issue of whether or not to allow certain relationships to exist based merely on past history. Deborah made it so explicitly plain that it was undeniable this was a godsend for me. "I'm always amazed at how she is able to take our life experiences and put them to words using biblical principles that highlights the hurdles, yet gives instructional steps to overcoming. Certainly the effort she put into this book will cause it to far surpass the accomplishments that ‘Taming Your Tongue' received."
--Evangelist Yvonne Gibson-Johnson, Director, Prayer Ministry
