FREE eBook: Student Driven Mentoring by LeaderTreks

I’m excited to tell you about a great free resource from our friends over at LeaderTreks. In Student Driven Mentoring Doug Franklin takes a fresh look at what’s working and what’s not when it comes to mentoring. Students have to want to be mentored for it to really work. Doug explores the motivations students have for being mentored and helps you build a program around those motives so that students will be all-in with their mentors. This book also offers a lot of great tips for adult mentors on how to dig deep into students’ lives.

What are OnTrack Devotions?

I’ve been using OnTrack Devotions for my students for nearly a year now and they are a resource that every youth worker should make available to their students! They are daily devotions that help students read, study, and apply God’s Word in a basic inductive Bible study format. Every day is super practical, relevant, and easy to for students of all faith depths.

Bottom Line: OnTrack Devotions are one of the best ways to help students become self-feeders in their faith walk.

Freebie Friday: July 4th Freedom Lesson For Students

Even though I am British, I can’t pass up the opportunity to pass on a great free 4th of July resource from my friends at

Here’s what they say about this sweet lesson:

The 4th of July is a national holiday in the United States, one that celebrates the freedom all American citizens live with on a daily basis. While it is fun to watch the fireworks, sing songs, and grill out, it’s also a great time to focus on a different kind of freedom: the real freedom that comes through life in Christ. Help your students discover what this freedom means for their lives and the importance of sharing it with others.
