“Our network of multi-cultural congregations was recently blessed by the ministry of Lori Bestrom and a team from Kentwood Community Church. This Real Life Chat Rooms resource was effectively used to help train our youth leaders/pastors and was very engaging for young people at our National Convention. I recommend this resource to you as a creative tool for both evangelism and discipleship. Use it to help your young people grow in their Christian faith!” Reverend Richard Waugh, National Superintendent,
Wesleyan Methodist Church of New Zealand
Author - Lori Bestrom lives with her husband, Tom, and four children, Kyle, Kerry, Luke, and Olivia, in southwest Michigan. She enjoys creating, reading, and decorating, but her favorite time is spent with her family. She and Tom are very involved in the youth ministry at Kentwood Community Church, ministry born when her oldest son entered the youth group. Lori feels called to make a difference in the lives of young people and has worked as a youth leader in both small and large group settings, gone on many youth and mission trips, and recently went to New Zealand, where she and a team of leaders from her church, trained a group of churches in youth ministry, based on Real Life Chat Rooms. Lori’s desire is for all to come to know Christ and hopes that Real Life Chat Rooms becomes an anointed tool in the hands of youth leaders who desire the same.
"Real Life Chatrooms" is a great tool to really connect with middle schoolers in a generation that needs to be understood, and needs to understand who God is in their lives. These kids need time spent with them and to be related to. This book is an awesome, interactive way to dive into that world. —Trey Pearson- Everyday Sunday
