I was reading this article today online about a 13 y/o teen who is triple majoring Morehouse College. This teen, Stephen Stafford, isn’t necessarily some brainy nerd, awkward type teen, he has his act together. According to a professor he not only achieves at a high level, but motivates his fellow students (all older than he is) to do better. He plays the drums, and enjoys his video games like any teen. As a Youth Pastor I just had to throw this one out there so that we can be reminded that teenagers have great potential. The challenge for us as parents, and youth leaders is to help them realize it!
