Servant Leader - Lyndsey

 

Why on earth do you choose to work with youth?

I want to impact the lives of youth the way my youth pastors impacted me. It was in my high school years that I really built my relationship with the Lord and solidified my commitment to Him.

That the Lord is the most important part of their lives. That our lives and relationships should reflect that.

What advice would you give youth about relationships?

Dating has a purpose: to find someone to marry. Intense yes, but true. Some people say its just a fling but those relationships, no matter how small, make an impact on your life. I started taking dating seriously my senior year of high school and that’s when I found Tyler. Ok so now to the advice part. Make a list of the characteristics you want in a spouse and look for those characteristics in the people you date. Simple!

 

What advice would you give youth about temptation?

Give it to God. Every time you are faced with that temptation give it to God and walk away! When you cannot handle it, He can.

 

What advice would you give youth about spending time with God? This is so important. I find when I do not spend time with God, I have no joy, or patience or peace. He fills you up and gives these things to you. The longer you go without spending time with God the easier it is to give in to those temptations you are facing.
