Let's Talk About Sex
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.- John C. Maxwell
As leaders, even though we put on a brave face, sometimes we are faced with circumstances or challenges that we just don't know how to respond to. You are not alone. The world today is changing at a rapid rate and we may find ourselves struggling to know how to bring truth to young people who are surrounded by a worldly perspective. Explicit is here to help. We definitely do not have all the answers, but we are here to support you through some of the tough questions.
