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.
We are offered a future full of hope. That future, however, will not simply arrive at our doorstep. We must co-labor with Christ as he speaks hope into this world. A future of hope starts with the youth of today. They are tomorrow’s prophets and apostles, developers and doctors, teachers and preachers, athletes and artists, mystics and martyrs. How they are shaped today will be how they shape tomorrow.
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.
Edge helps middle schoolers unleash who they were created to be, in Christ.
Life Teen strengthens our teens' Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church.

If you can build a house in Mexico, you surely can clean your house and help your parents. Yeah, I know. The truth can be sassy sometimes.

I’d like to believe that even when my praises for God feel dried up or His blessings for me feel finished, that I’ll remember the truth about who He is. I’d like to tell myself I’ll always see God’s goodness in even the most difficult of situations. But I’m human and stumble more than I’d like, failing to recognize such things.

As Catholics, we believe that Christ invites us to unite our suffering with His Passion and that, when we do this, our suffering takes on redemptive power.

You weren’t made for “maybe.” God wants all of you – Jesus asks us to jump in with both feet.

We have become so absorbed with ourselves and our image that we forget about the other person right next to us.
The saints lived incredible, heroic, nearly unbelievable moments because their love for God was just as radical in those moments as it was in the most un-incredible moments of their lives.

May you live in the truth every day that God has already claimed victory. By His death and resurrection, we can live in true freedom.

This is one of those Scripture passages that many people 'know' (meaning, they've heard it before) but countless people fail to understand. My own parochial school teacher taught us that it simply meant God loves poor people 'more.'
Ummm, to put it as charitably and bluntly as possible . . . no, that's not what it means . . .

No matter what you’re feeling, trust me, the Lord sees your heart. He already knows. But have you asked Him to see His?
