What if we formed young people to measure success according to Christ rather than by the standards of wealth, job status, or even college admissibility? In What Matters Most, Leonard J. DeLorenzo urges youth ministers, teachers, and parents to help young people redefine success in light of their call to discipleship – completely saying yes to God.
This book relates directly to the upcoming synod of bishops on "Young People, the Faith, and Vocational Discernment." Dr. DeLorenzo is accepting speaking and interview requests related to this book for all of 2018 and early 2019.
