What does it mean to know God on a personal level, to love Him with all your heart, and to serve Him on a daily basis? Those are pretty big questions that many Christians wrestle with on their spiritual journey.
So what happens when you ask these same questions to high school students who are still young in their spiritual walk? The depth of their answers and the lessons they have learned about God thus far in their life may surprise you, but should it really?
Just as Timothy was counseled to “set an example to the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity,” the students at GCA have much to teach us about faith, love, and service to our heavenly Father. Be inspired as you read stories of God's providence and protection. Be encouraged as you read about the spiritual battles they have overcome. And be refreshed as you read about their childlike faith and understanding of Bible truths.
Georgia-Cumberland Academy's motto “To Know, To Love, To Serve” is ingrained in the DNA of the school. May it also become ingrained in your life as you read the stories in this book that have been written by the students, staff, and alumni who call GCA home.

I enjoyed reading this book very much, even though it's been a year or two (!!) since I was a teenager. I could still relate to much of the content. I am really pleased to know that there are some kids out there who are on the right track in their relationship with Jesus. When I read the stats on the exodus of our young adults from the church, it's very heartbreaking. But these kids give me hope for the future of the church. I hope that their testimonies will encourage other teens to turn their focus to Jesus, too. I sent copies to several of my teenage grandkids with that hope and prayer.
