It's no argument that the youth in this generation face a tremendous amount of challenges like gang violence, drugs, teen pregnancy, abuse and more. Because of this, our youth feel many mixed emotions on a daily basis, including feeling misunderstood and abandoned. This leaves them seeking outlets, affection, approval and guidance. And, without proper guidance, they can become led toward unhealthy influencers who may potentially lead them astray. John Britton, the author of Handpicked to Serve #TheKing: Preparing Today's Youth to be Tomorrow's Leaders (NyreePress, $10.99, ISBN 978-0-9972921-8-3) has written a guidebook to help our youth walk through this important stage of their personal development. Britton's desire is to help our youth succeed and become productive citizens of both God's Kingdom and our society. In this book, he touches on real-life topics that will help our youth grow. A few topics include: How to think calmly and make wise decisions, How to choose between good and bad advice, How to take the initiative and When to stand up for what they believe in.
"Mr. Britton wrote a book that I believe is very important to our youth," says Kennisha Thornton, NyreePress President and CEO. "Each chapter offers both practical and biblical encouragement that will truly help shape the next generation of leaders. I'm excited about all who will use this tool to be inspired!"
Handpicked to Serve #TheKing is based on Daniel 1: 1-5. I believe that if we spend time with our youth and teach and model leadership skills and competencies to them that they will be equipped to serve #THEKING! Each lesson is Holy Spirit inspired, biblically based and centered around characters in the Bible. The lessons are structured so that they are easy to teach and easy to understand. The Scriptures are included with each lesson for those youth who do not have access to a Bible. Youth will be challenged to write what they learned from the scriptures relating that lesson to today, and then share how they will apply it to their lives.
Handpicked to Serve #TheKing is now available online where books are sold. To order copies in bulk for your youth, contact us at nyreepress.com.
