Resources: Sexuality, Gender and Dating

Steven Brooks

As we start our new series “The Road to A Great Love Story” with middle and high school students, I wanted to give you a list of some of the resources that I have found helpful over the last 20 years of student ministry in understanding these issues and even in helping to address them with my own kids. I’d also love to hear any recommendations you have to add to the list!
