Finally finished up a book I started a couple months ago – that ever happen to you? Live to Give: Letting God Turn Your Talents Into Miracles by Austin Gutwein is a great book to challenge teenagers to rise up and make a difference in the world around them. If you’re unfamiliar with his story, Austin founded Hoops of Hope and is using his basketball skills to raise money to help needy people all over the world. This is a great book for your students, as I read it I imagined our students going through it and using the discussion questions in the back of each chapter to talk through the book over a couple of months. Good good stuff here to help them rise up, understand their purpose and make a difference.
