The Steubenville Youth Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, are a series of 24 conferences across North America that help teens encounter the love of Christ every summer. Each summer, Life Teen hosts several Steubenville Youth Conferences with the hopes of strengthening and inspiring teens and youth groups in their collective journeys to Christ.
Life Teen’s Catholic Youth Ministry Convention has become America’s premier event for everyone involved in parish youth ministry. Why? Maybe it’s because we are different. We believe in practical, comprehensive youth ministry training. But we don’t think that’s enough. That’s why we incorporate elements of a spiritual retreat into the training convention. Because youth ministry isn’t about what you know, it’s Who you know.
There are many women who are a vital part of salvation history and their stories are critical parts of Sacred Scripture. This scriptural devotion will inspire young women to raise their heads along with Mary, Martha, Lydia, and Esther and look into the eyes of Jesus, the God who loves deeply and perfectly.

Every Sunday, you hear words that could radically change your life and transform your heart. In your home – probably high atop some dusty shelf – there is a book that can upend your entire world. It’s a book that can literally change the direction of your life.
These are not ordinary words written on pages; this is the Word of God. This word is powerful, effective, and life-giving.
Have you let it transform you?
God wants to transform your heart every day, but He especially wants to transform it when you encounter Him at Mass. We receive Jesus in the Eucharist, but our hearts are prepared for this great gift through readings from Sacred Scripture. Too often we let this time at Mass pass us by while we daydream about donuts or sit and wonder if the lector is mispronouncing the names of these ancient people and cities.
But what if we engaged the Word of God rather than passively “absorbing” it? How much more could the Eucharist impact us and how much more committed would we be with disciples?
We want you to be the best disciple you can be.
This incredible resource includes the scripture citation for every Sunday in the liturgical year, a brief study and reflection on the key themes, interesting facts about scripture, and deeper insights into the Word of God.
Reflect on how the Word of God is impacting you through journal questions and challenges each week. Take the Word you’ve heard proclaimed into the week with you by living as a disciple in the six days that follow Sunday mass.
