Youthful Days

A Message from the Editor:

Youthful Days is a Christian Gospel magazine for young people.  Bible based, its central theme is the need for a personal link with Jesus as Saviour and Lord.   

The reason I edit Youthful Days is because I want you to know about God's wonderful offer of salvation. It really is important to make sure you know God's forgiveness for your sins, and the work of Jesus on the cross has brought it all within your reach.  God commands us all to repent of our sins and believe in the Lord Jesus, for it is only then that we can have peace with God.  Those who ignore it do so at their peril. 

Youthful Days is also written for those who already know the Lord Jesus as their Saviour, and who depend upon Him day by day.  Aspects of Christian walk such as faith, discipleship, righteousness, holiness, and practical salvation - all feature frequently in the stories told.  And of course, Christian testimony, for if Jesus is our Saviour, we need to tell others the good news too.

Each issue of Youthful Days comprises 20 illustrated colour pages with attractive front and back colour photographs, and contains short stories and articles that introduce the Gospel message, as well as strengthening young believers in their faith.  Frequent Scripture quotations are included to encourage bible study.

Typically there will be poems and stories of interest to the young, including a small section for the very young, and a centre-page theme, as well as feature articles such as "Gospel Truth" drawn from the experiences of Christian outreach. Then there are "People of the Bible" profiles which explain the lessons we can learn from the lives of people from long ago.  Examples of these are available to view from the side menu, including a feature article which is regularly updated. 

A recent addition is a two-page Gospel message, abridged from a live gospel preaching.  There is also a word search and a picture text page for children to colour and the back pages comprise the Bible Class which has sections for Gleaners (children under 8 years), Searchers (children from 8-11 years), and Students (those 12 years and above).  Award certificates for Bible Class answers that are consistently accurate are distributed each year.

An online version of the Bible Class is also available (use the Bible Class link on the left) which enables answers to be completed online, and they can be sent to the Editor by either email or post. 

There are six issues of Youthful Days each year, and an annual subscription including postage costs just £6. Copies are sent worldwide.  If you would like to receive a free introductory copy of Youthful Days, please email your request to, or write to my address (see in Contacts), and I shall be pleased to send a copy to you.  Examples of past copies can be viewed in the "Downloads" section.

I hope you will enjoy reading Youthful Days and that you may find comfort and peace in the messages of Godís love and salvation through Jesus.
