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.
You are going to make thousands of decisions today and one of them might change your life. Are you confident that what you want and what God want are the same thing? Don’t leave it up to chance - leave it in the hands of the Holy Spirit.

We all have taken on a ‘do whatever it takes’ mentality in ministry over these challenging and uncertain months.

With all of the difficulties this year has brought, it is fitting that 2020 throws us one last challenge of accompanying our teens through a tough holiday season. Let’s use all we have learned this past year to compassionately and creatively share Christ’s light and love with our teens this Advent and Christmas – socially distanced, of course!

The beauty of discipleship is that the more you work, the more workers you create. As teens become disciples, they will be able to make their friends disciples.
