Too often our lives become so cluttered with selfish pursuits that we miss the opportunities right in front of our eyes to help people and change the world around us. In Make a Difference, Ken Castor reminds us every day what is good and what priority we ought to set first: to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with our God. – Joshua Becker, Wall Street Journal Best-selling author, Founder of Becoming Minimalist (becomingminimalist.com) and The Hope Effect (hopeeffect.com)

  2. I just purchase your book Make a Difference. I started reading it this morning(1/1/17). I have been praying for a long time to have a closer relationship with the Lord. And I have found that reading the Bible, going to church, listening to God’s word on the radio and other devises and reading daily devotion and receiving daily devotions via emails has been a blessing. As I get closer to the Lord, I desire to do His will and to serve Him and help others. So, I am looking forward to reading your book Making a Difference daily. Prayerfully I’ll discover more ways to make a difference in someone’s life and Honor, Praise and Glorify the Lord in all that I do.
    Looking forward to spending my mornings with you, through your books.

  6. Hi, I was wondering if you have a recommendation of a video series for HS youth to watch and study. At this time our church doesn’t have a Youth Pastor and we want the youth to dive into Gods Word. It’s seems all I have found is a watered down gospel that teaches little scripture and more fun and fuzzy feel good lessons. Thank you for anything you can suggest.

    1. Hey – great question. There are some great resources out there. Right now media (http://www.rightnowmedia.org/) has some great content. I always recommend Alpha (http://www.alphayouthfilmseries.com/). LIVE curriculum has solid weekly Jesus-Centered content (http://live.simplyyouthministry.com/). And more (like Tim Keller & Redeemer Church, or Francis Chan’s Multiply series)… Hope that gives a great head start. I bet there are others I’m not thinking of right now.
