  • It sometimes helps to just open the bible and read.
  • You can talk to God like he is your best friend! You don't need to use big words!
  • Before you read the Bible, ask God to show you something that would surprise you. Tell your problems to God and ask Him to give you some scriptures of comfort.
  • Find a youth group in your church where you can share your experiences and meet new friends.
  • Find a church that teaches according to the bible. Where you can clap hands and move freely as God leads you. You should feel the presence of God in such a church. It should also be fun. When you leave, ask yourself if you had an intimate time with God, or learned something that changed you.
  • Do not be angry if you have sinned. If you're sorry God will always forgive you again.


  • When testifying (telling others what God's done for you) do not force Christianity or the Bible unto them. Pray God to help you.
  • Between all the fun and getting involved in projects, do not let it become a habit and you forget about God. Talk to God about it, ask him for new ideas etc.

Things You'll Need

  • Bible
  • Some courage.
  • Time for God. Start small if you like. With like half an hour a day for praying and reading. As you grow, make more time.
  • Gospel music. It helps to get intimate with God when praying (like in the mood for praying). Worship music.
