Recently at our high school small group I went old school. I gave them a bunch of fill int the blank one line thoughts of things i wanted them to know about manhood/life/leadership.

It made for some good conversation.  I’ll put the questions and answers afterwards.

I am sharing those lines below. Hope they are helpful for you!
