Everyone has secrets. Some you might whisper into a friend s ear, while others may stay locked inside you for years... maybe even forever. It's those secrets that you tuck away that eventually control you. You may think you're okay, but really, your secrets can be tearing you apart from the inside out. Secret Survivors tells the compelling, true stories of people who have lived through painful secrets - things that they kept to themselves until they could no longer bear the pain alone. As you read their stories, you'll be drawn into their journeys towards healing, and you'll understand why it's so important to share your secret with someone else in order to start your own healing process. Read the stories of people, who as teens and young adults, dealt with issues like: Date rape Physical abuse Cutting Pornography addiction Eating disorders Incest Drug and alcohol addiction Abortion You may find a story that sounds similar to your own secret pain, or you may learn more about secrets that a friend or family member is dealing with. Whether your own story is represented in these pages or not, you'll feel a connection to the people in these stories, because we all have some kind of pain tucked away. But you don't have to feel alone in your pain anymore. After you read the stories of these survivors, you'll find the strength you need to share your own secret and start healing your heart and soul. Jen Howver has worked with students for more than 10 years and has helped plan, promote, and run student conferences nationwide. She volunteers with the youth ministry in her local church and is proud to be a secret survivor. When she's not writing or hanging out with students, Jen can be found singing and dancing with her husband, Jay, and their daughters, Noelle and Chloe. Megan Hutchinson is a veteran youth worker who serves as a student minister at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California. She's a secret survivor who also coauthored Life Hurts God Heals, an 8-step recovery program for students with unresolved pain and addiction. In her spare time, Megan and her husband, Adam, can be found at the beach, making sandcastles or surfing with their two boys, Jack and Parker.

The Outrageous Idea of Academic Faithfulness
Most Christian college students separate their academic life from church attendance, Bible study, and prayer. Too often discipleship of the mind is overlooked if not ignored altogether. However, authors Donald Opitz and Derek Melleby issue a clarion call to students to integrate their faith and learning in The Outrageous Idea of Academic Faithfulness. Written for a narrative generation, this guide extracts illustrations from the Book of Daniel, The Lord of the Rings, the experiences of real students, and more. This book is an excellent gift for college-bound seniors in high school. It’s an essential text for first-year college students, too. The Outrageous Idea of Academic Faithfulness will also benefit professors, pastors, and parents. Donald Opitz (PhD, Boston University) is associate professor of sociology and higher education at Geneva College. He is the author of numerous articles and has worked as a pastor and a campus minister. Derek Melleby (MA, Geneva College) is the director of the College Transition Initiative for the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding through a unique partnership with the Coalition for Christian Outreach.

If it seems like students are doing more today than they ever have before, it's because well they are. Everyone is busy and your students are no exception.

And it will help them develop healthy priorities that will have a positive impact on their spiritual, school and home life (you'll probably learn a lot too since youth workers are crazy-busy and Doug taught this series to the adults at Saddleback Church).Packed with Doug's humor, real-life stories and illustrations, this three weeks series breaks down as such...Week 1: Why Do I Say "Yes?" (Doug) Week 2: The Heart of the Matter (Saddleback teaching pastor Lance Witt) Week 3: Taking Action on Busyness (Doug)

Every Young Man's Battle

Every Young Woman's Battle

Glue Boys DVD
Although the 150 million children living on the Third World's streets may be hidden from the public eye, the global economy is always watching with keen interest. In Kitale, Kenya, like countless other towns, many street children have found comfort from their hunger pains by becoming accidental consumers. In sunlit corners, they choke up the little money they have to buy the same glue that the rest of the world uses to hold its shoes together. Only these children are barefoot. With bottles constantly perched at their mouths, they breathe in the toxic fumes until they pass out or fall asleep forever. This is their timely story.This DVD is designed to create awareness as to what is happening with many impoverished children around the world. Our hope is that this video will not only paint a picture of a major issue to our students, but also ignite a passion within them to help in some way. A large portion of the proceeds from this resource will be sent back to Kenya to help battle this issue as well as provide support to the children of Kenya.Teenagers from Saddleback Church go there several times a year. The filmmaker was in college when he created this film. It's simply amazing!**DVD will be delivered in a paper sleeve.**
Guy Talk Girl Talk
After a few decades in youth ministry, we’ve realized something—guys and girls are different. And significantly so, at that. So rather than the usual “one message fits all” approach, we’ve created an extensive 10-week small group curriculum with two paths, each specifically tailored for one gender or the other.This small group curriculum series will help your students get solid biblical insight on topics ranging from friendships and gossip to peer pressure and sex. Designed to get your students talking about significant and real issues that they face everyday, you’ll see your students begin to open up, share their thoughts and feelings, and witness the formation of deep and lasting friendships.And since the entire series is written twice, one geared for guys and one for girls, you can be certain you’ll get examples, discussion starters, and goal setting tips that you can use right away.Guy Topics Include: Being a Man Self Image Relationships True Strength Girls Lust Wounds Responsibility Leading God-given Tools Girl Topics Include: Appearance Friendships Girl Politics Gossip Image Kindness Purity Sex Value Worth Help your students tackle the issues they face as guys and girls in a fallen world.
The Purpose Driven Life
This is a 5 week downloadable message transcript series. Included in this file are 5 Microsoft word documents containing the full word-for-word message transcripts and student outlines.Nobody wants to go through life as a loser with no direction or purpose. We were created with a purpose and a God-given longing to fulfill that purpose. Use this series to help your students discover their purpose in life and how to fulfill it.Week 1: The World’s Greatest Relationship Do I want to be influenced by people who love me conditionally or by a person who loves me no matter what? Do I want to be comforted by people who try to sympathize with me or by the person who has experienced everything I have? Do I want a happiness based on temporary situations or lasting joy? Do I want to be understood by people who do their best to know me or by the person who created me? If your students want to learn about a relationship of lasting joy and unconditional love with their creator who has been through everything they have, they need this message.Week 2: Making The Right Connections Everybody wants to belong to a group where they are accepted, where they fit in. We will often go to great lengths and pretend to be someone we’re not just to get this acceptance. Belonging is good and fills a need in us, but since the group we’re in will shape our behavior and attitudes, we need to choose our groups wisely. This lesson will help your students see the role belonging plays in their lives as well as how to recognize when a group is headed in the wrong direction.Week 3: Where Do I Go To Grow? “Truth” is not a very popular word these days; in fact, there are hordes of people who claim there is no such thing as an absolute truth. Some of these people are even preaching that your way is good for you and my way is good for me. This moral relativism leads to problems when people try to find their own brand of truth in drugs, sex, and other destructive behavior. This lesson helps your students see the need to search out the truth and the benefits it will bring. (And don’t worry; it doesn’t actually use the term “moral relativism.”)Week 4: The Search For Significance Why does God want us to discover our significance? Well, because He knows what’s best for us, and He wants us to have it. He chooses to work through people, He created you with a unique mission and the personality and gifts to accomplish it, and He will eventually judge our actions. Why should your students want to discover their significance? Because they don’t want to look back on their lives and realized they just wasted their time.Week 5: The World’s Greatest Party Fortunately for those of us youth ministries who can’t play the guitar or carry a tune, worship does not just mean singing. Real worship, worship with your whole life, is a passionate dedication to something. Unfortunately, that worship is often given to something or someone who doesn’t deserve it. When your students learn how to worship God in spirit a
