    The Youth Pastor's Guide To Self Care

    Times are crazy for youth workers like you and in all this quarantining, it's possible you are not doing well. I understand. As one who deals with anxiety and depression himself, I know the highs and lows it brings on. Today, I just want to ask you a question, how are you doing?

    This is episode is not about a youth ministry teaching, it's about a reminder to take care of yourself with all the hustle to do Zoom meetings, connect with kids, or help your church live stream.

    Take care of yourself for you, for your family and for the students you oversee.
