Great post. We must make them feel like they are important to us because we may be the only people in their life that give them that feeling. Doing this will give us many more chances in bringing the gospel to them in a way they will relate to.

And not only that, it helps remind us to be the gospel to them, love them because Jesus loves them, not because we want something from them.

This is great! You get easy answers from how are you or how was your week/day, but one question I’ve started asking teens is what would you like to change about your week/day? Definitely some interesting responses, but you get deeper conversation.

Thats a great question, definitely think that helps get deeper than asking how their week/day was. Good stuff Katy!
