The second thing that teenagers need to see in you before they trust you is ....
Teenagers are looking for someone who has been down the road a little further than they have.
Someone who really knows the Bible and can unpack in a way that is interesting and applicable to them.
Someone who totally understands money and isn't afraid to share the secrets they have learned.
Someone who has mastered their personal craft of writing, teaching, photography, media and graphic design is someone that a teenager will be want to be around.
Teenagers are looking for the real deal. So, be the real deal. Know your stuff. Deliver it in interesting ways. They will trust you and maybe even listen to what you have to say!
