Thanks for sharing your youthful experience. I agree, that every youth needs to be in a Christ-centered youth group. What a great impact it made on your life!
What a wonderful childhood. Thanks for letting us in.
I enjoyed hearing about your escapades. I'm surprised how much a decade can change attitudes. Christians were just freaks when I went to high school. Later when my kids went, I was so impressed by their lack of fear about sharing their faith. They may have gotten teased occasionally, but they persevered. I wasn't as brave as they and you. You told a powerful story that captured the topic and touched my heart.
A very realistic story of those years of wildness but thank God He never gives up on us. Thanks for sharing. Well done.
Wow...I loved this entry. It touched my heart and told a great message.

God bless~
I'm glad you had such a positive experience in a youth group. On topic, and one message in it that stands out to me is unconditional love. That's a good reminder for pretty much all of us.
You've made a very strong case why youth should be encouraged to participate in Christian activities during their most formative years. Good for you !!
I truly enjoyed your glimpse of the Jesus movement. My travels with our college choir (then Central College-now Southern Wesleyan University) left me with some wonderful memories. Your piece is written excellently from start to finish, concluding with the final summary and challenge.
I remember the 70's well and the Jesus movement but if I hadn't personally experienced the same type of church youth group environment growing up as you did, I would have felt "from the reading of this "part" of this wonderful life experience.

Well written.
This is fun. You took me right along with you on your trips.
I enjoyed this very much.
Congratulations on ranking 16th overall. Happy Dance!
Yeah, I remember those days! I didn't get to wear kaftans and beads, or groove to the latest happening, though.

Thanks for taking me down memory lane. Well written.
