One of my favorite authors has now co-written a book with his daughter… Max Lucado and Jenna Lucado Bishop recently released their new book, You Were Made to Make a Difference.Besides the incredibly cool earthy looking cover, the inside pages are equally fun and reader-friendly. It’s perfectly suited for the teen audience it was written for and provides stories of real teen discovering that it’s never too early to make a difference in the world.
One shocking quote from the book is a statistic from the CDC…
Hearts need healing. In 2006, suicide was the third leading cause of death for young people in the United States ages 15 to 24.
That should not be. Whether it’s through books like these to encourage youth, programs like Teen Identity to help raise their self esteem or individual mentoring of young people, we must take a stand for the next generation. Let’s make 2011 the year we see young people begin to step up and take their place as world changers. Are you with me?
