Hi all! A few years ago, as I was writing the New Testament year for our middle school ministry’s rotation, I realized that there were no series out there on the Epistles. None. Nada. There are stories on Galatians, or Corinthians, or Philippians, but none that highlight each book and some of their core teachings.
So I wrote my own.
Introducing: Letters to the Church, on Youth Specialties! You can purchase a 6-week series for just $17. This is my first curriculum with my very own name on it (I wrote for YM360’s The Thread a few years back). I’m pretty proud of it, and I hope you find it to be original and helpful!
I grew up in one of the most conservative denominations in the United States, and it took a long journey to come to include and affirm people who are different from me.
One of the people groups who I now embrace and love is the LGBTQ+ community. Most Christians still put this community at lengths; but after being in community with gay Christians, my heart has been changed. I had the opportunity to share this view on YouthSpecialties, who had never had this progressive view shared. I was honored and scared out of my mind. I’d love for you to read that article here.
I wrote a post a little over 3 years ago for another blog site with this same title and similar content…but so much about the way I view and talk about women in ministry has changed. So I rewrote it and now it’s over at Youth Specialties.

I was fortunate to get my first church position at the tender age of 20. Now, over 5 years later, I have young people under my wing as volunteers…but more than that, I’m in community with young people in ministry. I think this post applies to more, but is targeted towards those who are mentoring young people in ministry.

Okay maybe that’s a tough way to say it. “Killing” something implies impulsiveness, and my hope is that when you read my new post on Youth Specialties you’ll realize that ridding a program takes a lot of intentionality.

I am SUPER excited about having the ability to write for Youth Specialties. I’m a huge fan of them, and here is my first article! The biggest part of my position is wrapped around transitioning students into and out of junior high. Read about some of the things we’ve learned!
