“Come on, you guys.  There’s plenty of time for this later.  We’ve got a crisis on our hands.”


They wouldn’t stop.  I put the big candle on the shelf and took a step back and considered the absurdity of it all.  Four perfectly healthy candles singing to each other about light but refusing to come out of the closet.  I had all I could take.  One by one I blew them out.  They kept singing to the end.  The last one to flicker was the female.  I snuffed her out right in the “puff” part of “won’t let Satan puff me out.”


I stuck my hands in my pocket and walked back out in the darkness.  I bumped my knee on the same freezer.  Then I bumped into my wife.


“Where are the candles?” she asked.


“They don’t . . . they won’t work.  Where did you buy those candles anyway?”


“Oh, they’re church candles.  Remember the church that closed down across town?  I bought them there.”


I understood.

I have had many youth pastors over the years ask me for my own personal recommendations on products. In recent years, this request has increased. So, I thought it might be beneficial to many to share on the site my personal favorites in different categories from Simply Youth Ministry.
