Some pains and hurts from our past don't keep bothering us. We seek God's forgiveness, then forgive and forget. OTHER MEMORIES keep haunting for a long time with stingers of guilt, regret and resentment. But, by God's grace, total and unconditional forgiveness to YOURSELF and others stand available to every child of God.

Dr. James Dobson says that overcoming guilt, even after repentance, is one of the primary weapons the Enemy uses on today's leadership culture. That's why I wanted to share with you this resource. I call this Youth Leader's Coach, "A Leader’s Guide To Overcoming Guilt." Prayerfully, this will be a resource that will be a game-changer for you!

It is EASY to question what is real and what may not be. This is especially true when it comes to the topic of our faith. There are a MULTITUDE of ideologies and beliefs out there, and many times it is difficult to navigate between what is TRUE and what isn't.

In this month's source, "Doubters Welcome," I embrace the topic that is often ignored...the topic of DOUBT. I believe this is a good resource for helping students and even leaders help navigate some of the things they may question, which can ultimately help strengthen their faith as opposed to losing it. I think you'll enjoy this one.

If I could do just one single thing for youth pastors today, I would try to fan their spiritual passion.

In my journey, I have found that there is really very little correlation between spiritual success and ministry success. Too often, talent becomes a remarkable substitute for character and spiritual passion. In ministry it is too easy to know "things" and not know "God." With ease, we can bluff our way through and, unfortunately, more than likely nobody will catch us.

I am determined not to be a "poser." In this Youth Leader's Coach, I will give you tips I've learned along the way that might prevent you from becoming one as well.

We take our fun title from Adele's popular hit song, "HELLO! " Because our amazing Heavenly Father wants to say "HELLO...from the other side! " every day to us through His Word. In a culture that doesn't really prioritize relationship with Christ, this is an incredible topic to help all of us star, underline time with God in our lives.

In this month's Source, "Hello...From The Other Side," I'm sharing 3 ingredients for consistent, motivational time in the Word. I also share 16 fun ways to make the Word of God COME ALIVE in our own personal lives and end the evening with a story that's one of my personal favorites!

I bet you'll listen to this Youth Leader's Coach pretty quickly! It's entitled, "Helping Your Teenagers Walk In Sexual Purity." And trust me, it's one of the biggest battlegrounds you'll ever have to coach your kids through. Unfortunately, in the church world, we often preach fired up messages about the importance of sexual purity without carefully laying out a game plan that helps them to move in that direction.

So grab a cup of coffee and come hang out with me for an hour or so. You'll be glad you did. After all, how many people have discussed this topic with you recently? Happy coaching!

With all the noise, distractions and things clawing for our attention in today's society, it is so easy to "lose our way." For many, however, all it takes is for one person in their life to care enough to correct and redirect. This issue of the Source, "Intervention," is about just that. It is designed as an outreach night based on the popular A&E show that goes by the same title. In a similar way that Antwahn's and Cristine's families hosted interventions for them, we draw the parallel of how the Lord lovingly hosts one for us as well.

Using four "reality checks," the powerful stories of two individuals, a captivating human video to Justin Timberlake's, "Losing My Way," and Naaman's personal intervention recorded in the Bible, we guide students through what hinders people from responding to the Lord's intervention on their behalf. It was a night that drew many to His love for the very first time, and served as a reminder for others of the love they once knew.

The summer months are so pivotal in a student's spiritual growth and we simply can't take our voice of influence in their lives half-heartedly.  We especially can't begin to punt on our communication, because if we're honest, the longer we do it or the more common it becomes to us, the easier it is to do.  That's why we're sharing, "Making Creativity Come Alive In Your Youth Service," in this Alliance.

The truth of the matter is that creativity really isn't an option anymore if you want your students to remember much of what you are saying.  We live in a pretty A.D.D. generation where it's hard to focus on much of anything.  That's why it's so vital that we that we add some elements to our services that really catch their attention.  For some of us, creativity is a little more difficult, and never has carried a lot of weight in our youth ministries.  I hear over and over, "I'm just not a creative person," but experience has taught me that with a little extra time and energy, we all have the ability to get our creative juices flowing.  So, listen in to this Alliance as I cover some of the reasons that we often don't put much energy toward creativity in our services and give ten practical ideas to add some new life to our weekly routines.

I once heard someone say that a word of encouragement after a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after a success. This is the core of our teaching in this Source. Christians are quick to say many things but I want us to focus on what we are not saying.

We would all like to think that we are encouragers but the truth is, we are mostly complainers. We are called to take care of each other, to be friendly and hospitable, but how well are we really fulfilling this calling? If we believe the Lord's return is approaching then let us throw off whatever is hindering us from lovingly encouraging weaknesses and strongly encouraging strengths in our brothers and sisters.

As leaders, we are expected to be encouragers, but I know that it is easier to be encouraged than it is to encourage. As you make encouragement a habit in your life you will find your heart being changed and your attitude uplifted and remember, whatever gets rewarded gets repeated! As Celeste Holm so wisely stated, "We live by encouragement and die without it." Listen in as we talked about "One Of Christianity's Most Ignored Messages."

Still finding ways to encourage,

When it comes to adversity, it's not a matter of "if," but "when" it will appear in our lives. Many of us know what it's like to have been hurt deeply by people we love, faced a hardship that seemed impossible to conquer, or perhaps had a tragedy happen to someone close to us. All of us have or will face adversity. The defining question is though, how will you respond in those crisis moments? How will you keep the times of adversity from paralyzing you from life and allow them to make you stronger instead?

In this Youth Leader's Coach I call, "Resilience: Surviving The Shark Attacks," I look at seven resilience tips for moving on after a trauma, from Laurence Gonzales' book, Surviving Survival: The Art and Science of Resilience. While I hope you will never experience any traumas as severe as the ones Gonzales outlines in his book, my simple prayer is that when times of adversity do come your way, this Youth Leader's Coach will help to prepare you to come through them victoriously resilient.

In Your Corner,
