Yes, there are other tools that help the young people in our families and churches, but “Sharpened Arrows” fills an important gap in the toolbox.

“Sharpened Arrows” is a digital publication edited by Pastor Simeon Western of Northside Baptist Church, Australia. As a Pastor’s son, Simeon’s desire in starting this publication was to encourage the next generation of young people to stand for Christ with a particular emphasis on (but not limited to) being a blessing to kids from ministry homes (e.g. pastors, evangelists & missionaries).

Many adults get a blessing out of it as well.

“Sharpened Arrows” has a current subscription of over 800 contacts from all over the world. Several editions are organized each year and are made available in a colorful, professionally designed, interactive, PDF format. Read latest edition at:
