All Christians are called to share the Gospel out of love for God and love for thy neighbor. One great way to do this is by handing out cards that explain what the Gospel and include contact information on it for further questions. A face-to-face interaction is preferred but we must remember that the Gospel is powerful and God changes hearts, not us. So we must realize that reading the Gospel can be just as effective as hearing it from someone. And we must trust that God is sovereign over everything, salvation included.
I've created printable cards with this information on it that are customizable for your own name and contact info.

Christian book recommendations
Here are 5 Christian book recommendations as of 8/27/20!
The Bible should obviously be the book that we read the most and that has the most impact on us but there are also a bunch of really great biblical resources that deepen understanding of the Bible and provide insight and knowledge that's really helpful as a Christian. (Always do your research and ensure that books and other outside resources are biblically-based and align with your beliefs :) )
sermon notes worksheet
This worksheet provides sectioned areas for notes, scripture, things to study further, and application. If you takes notes in church/during sermons, this could be very useful to you! You can print in color, b&w, two-sided, or however else you'd like and then create a binder or folder to collect them all over the years.
eating disorder resources
Here's a list of eating disorder resources I gathered to hopefully encourage those struggling with disordered thoughts and actions regarding food to seek help. I know it's hard to reach out but it's essential. Many recovery organizations will keep your situation anonymous if you so choose, as long as it isn't a risk to your life.
There's also a resource listed for parents/families. The support needs support too.
