Category: Motivating Our Youth

Motivating our youth is my deepest passion. Our next generation has been described as apathetic. Lacking the drive and desire for an education and success in life. This category will share what I believe are the keys to motivating our youth of today.

It is my belief that every day we are alive on this earth that we can make a difference. We have the opportunity to create a ripple effect on a daily basis. Whether that is good or bad is up to us. We have a choice in how we effect our situation and those around. I ask those I speak to, “What kind of difference are you making today”?

I believe our youth cares. I believe they want to be everything that is within them. Many of them just do not know or understand how to get there. Its not apathy, its a lack of hope. Why try? This category will answer that why. It will inspire and motivate young people. It will give educators, clergy, and parents ideas to use to help the youth they love and care about.
