It's meeting time again and your high schoolers have spent the last twenty minutes talking about spring break and prom dates. A handful of guys are shooting hoops in the church gym while three girls in the corner are swooning over the homecoming king. And you think you're gonna get them talking about peer pressure or popular music? Good luck. They'd rather be doing their geometry homework. But then again, maybe you've found a solution! TalkSheets have been working for leaders for over a decade. And now they're updated - ready to help you get a hardcore discussion going to hit home on real issues - everything from drinking to social injustice. Just pick one of the fifty ready-to-use discussion starters, make copies, and let the questions and activities get them thinking about their world and their lives.

TalkSheets have been working for youth group leaders for more than a decade. Now they are radically updated and ready to stimulate high schoolers toward in-depth discussions on real issues--everything from drinking to social justice.
Youth and family ministry worker and counselor David Lynn has worked with young people and their families for more than three decades. He's the creator of TalkSheets and author of numerous books, the creator of Building up Your Ministry, and he conducts several leadership training workshops. He lives with his family in Tucson, Arizona.
'This resource is a must-have for every youth worker... One of the best features is the ability to edit the Talksheets, enabling the users to delete a question they don't want or add something specific to their group. The program is very user-friendly, so even those who are computer illiterate should find it easy to use. It's well worth the cost, a resource you'll find yourself coming back to week after week.' -- YouthWorker Journal
