A very prayerful, creative, and insightful approach to nourishing the faith life of those who minister to and with young people. The inspiring meditations, prayers, and questions enable adult leaders to reflect on their lives and discover God at the heart of their ministry. An excellent resource for integrating prayer and ministry and for sustaining a focused commitment to young people.

If we are going to minister with youth authentically, we must draw upon wells that are full. Finding the Calm: Biblical Meditations to Nourish Those Who Nurture Teens is an outstanding resource that will help us find the questions, the words, and the quiet to sustain us in this incredible and oftentimes hectic ministry with youth. No matter how we serve youth—as youth ministers, catechists, coaches, or retreat leaders—one thing we have in common is our need to pray and stay centered in our calling as disciples first. This is the kind of book that will keep us rooted in prayer and the Scriptures as we work together in youth ministry.
