One of the greatest influences on teens is other teens. They listen to each other and learn from each other how to survive and thrive in their faith and in the world. Having the ear of hundreds of thousands of teens over the years, Ron and Katie Luce have insight into their worlds. In this unique book, they have invited select teens, including Honor Academy students and Teen Mania internship and missions trips alumni, to write from their hearts to their peers. These teens have penned fifty daily devotions, each one digging into a different aspect of teen life today. The writings will tell stories of passion, pursuing God, and cultivating a servant attitude. They will deal head on with peer pressure, teen suicide, sex, and purity. They will struggle with the ideals of absolutes and big dreams against the backdrop of a hopeless feeling culture in crisis. These edgy daily readings will draw teen readers into conversations that will build a character of no compromise and equip them with leadership skills that will prepare them to not only survive but also thrive in their teen years.
