Apart from our shared love for Jesus, we at OYP also share a great love for food so that tells you a little bit about our choice of words here!

But as it says in scripture,"Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word of God." - Luke 4:4

It is our hope that the stories and reflections you find here will serve to encourage and bless you on your faith journey. We hope it serves as a reminder that none of us are really alone!
