Hey Jonathan, just came across your blog. Lots of great stuff. I appreciate your book on preparing for college too--so many students just aren't prepared!!

I was wondering if you might add a new resource library for youth pastors to your link list? You could add the site (www.calledtoyouthministry.com) to your blogroll as "Youth Ministry Resources" or just use the code below:

Youth Ministry Resources

Thanks in advance if you're able--and God bless!!
