My brain does not comprehend this woman’s wisdom. After years of being a volunteer youth leader, Danette has ‘crossed over to the dark side’ of paid church work. (Her words, not mine!) Recently, Danette and I collaborated on a book project. I entered into the project believing my thoughts and philosophies on the youth ministry issues addressed in the book were firm. But as I read Danette’s responses, I found myself enthralled with her take on the issues she was writing about. She challenges my thinking and causes me to dig deeper. I love that about her!!
