This book challenges leaders to think about the core things that need to be woven into students lives so that they can remain faithful to God throughout their lives. Then once you have developed this list, build your teaching and programs around it so that these principles are worked into the thinking and lives of your students. It is a great book for any student leader to use for developing the lives of their students.

Purity now paves the way to intimacy later.”
“If a teenage guy tends to overreact when he fails, there is a pretty good chance he thinks his significance is based on success.”More quotes…
