By Nancy Schlachte, Catholic Community of Pleasanton

I have just used this resource for planning our next middle school youth group. I am very pleased at the blend of practical catechesis, fun & active games, quieter activities, and prayer. I also appreciate the continuity with your usual format of "Study it! Live It! Pray It!" I was able to take a chapter of the book and tweak it so it would work with our enormous middle school program. We have over 280 kids enrolled in our once a week youth group, and I appreciate finding a resource that is adaptable for both small and large group activities.
