We are surrounded by dozens of voices family, teachers, friends, media, even our own maturing body and brain telling us every day what to believe and what to do:
"Whadja do to your hair?"
"Oooh, whata hunk!"
"Don't be such a nerd."
With so many voices shouting at us, who do we listen to? Which are wrong? Which are right? The easy way is to give up and follow whichever voice is the loudest.
THAT ISN'T THE ONLY WAY.
God invites us to answer to His voice. He can help sort out the other voices, and show us truth from lies, good from bad, real from fake. So how do we hear His voice? By getting into the Bible God's Word and searching for His clear, compassionate voice speaking to us above the pressure-packed roar of the world.
In forty-five devotional readings, Who Should I Listen To? provides Biblical responses to the conflicts junior highers encounter every day, with topics ranging from:
Discovering God's view of us.
Choosing godly heroes.
So get some earplugs and listen up!

Kevin Johnson has a passion for ministering to youth, currently serving as Vice President for Training and Resources at Family Hope Services, a ministry to at-risk youth and their families headquartered in Plymouth, Minnesota. He also has the gift of writing and with total sales of well over 175,000 copies Kevin is undoubtedly the premier author for early teens today.
His training includes an M.Div. from Fuller Theological Seminary and a B.A. in English and Print Journalism from the University of Wisconsin--River Falls. In his studies at Fuller Theological Seminary, he found out exactly what kids should know about themselves and about Jesus. This combination gives Kevin a powerful mix of knowledge and passion, mind and heart.
In his newest book, Was That a Balloon or Did Your Head Just Pop?, he presents forty-five short readings that help early teens learn how to escape the prison of peer fear so that they can grab hold of God and good friends.
"They get a life-grounding lesson without knowing it!" Kevin is fond of saying about his books. He has honed each of his popular books to hit specific targets--growing up, eschatology, cults, missions. So what seems to be an "easy and fun read" to teens is actually Theology and Life 101! Kevin has a unique gift of crafting hard hitting topics into books kids not only like but love!!
In addition to his service as senior editor for adult nonfiction at Bethany House Publishers in Minneapolis for four years, he has pastored a group of more than 400 sixth through ninth graders at Embrook Church in metro Milwaukee. Kevin and his wife, Lyn, live in Minnesota with their three children, Nathaniel, Karin, and Elise.
