I’m getting ahead of the spring cleaning by cleaning up the YMRU articles by categorizing them into professional, spiritual growth, middle school, etc. so you can find what to need.

I’m also bringing back the my The Drop: Spotify Playlist so you can have a batch of fresh songs to play pre and post youth meeting exposing kids to fresh Christian music. (scroll to the bottom)

The goal isn’t just to deliver the information—it’s to capture the imagination. – @bernadettejiwa

If persecution should arise, you should be willing to part with all that you possess—with your liberty, with your life itself, for Christ—or you cannot be his disciple. – Spurgeon

Doing your job is not always the same as doing the work. The “soft stuff” might matter more than you think. Doing the work is the ticket you buy for the privilege of doing the other part. – Seth Godin

Call a sin a sin, not a mistake, or a weakness, or a mess. Those words dilute the problem. Mistakes only require you to do better next time. Weaknesses only require you to be stronger next time. Messes only require you to clean it up next time. But sins require forgiveness. – Allen Nelson IV


Pure inspiration.
