We need to talk more openly and honestly about mental health, especially in the Church.

From the first death of a pet to losing an aging relative, sooner or later we will all experience some sort of grief or loss. During these times, it is important to remember God’s promises that He has given throughout Scripture.
During the 2021 National Lutheran Youth Workers Conference, we asked our YouthLead participants what they wanted the adult leaders in their Youth Ministry to know. These were some of their responses. We are so grateful for how God is working through amazing teens in our congregation.
