this cultural moment.

Are you ready to trade lies for truth and live with bold faith?

It’s time to stand up and stand strong.


Trade confusion for clarity...and live boldly for God in a world gone crazy

How do I navigate LGBT+ issues as a Christian?


How can I know who I am in such a "be yourself" world?


How should I think about things like Critical Race Theory? Abortion? Transgenderism? Media?


How can I apply biblical truth to the hot-button issues of today and remain faithful to God...even in an anti-Christian world?


Stand Up, Stand Strong tackles all these questions and more. With powerful examples from Scripture and stories from teens today and through the centuries, Sara Barratt, Editor-in-Chief of, equips teens to live with a biblical worldview, approach today’s hot-button issues with godly wisdom, and influence their generation for the glory of God. Tackling tough topics like sexuality, addiction, injustice, identity, media, and much more, Sara offers practical ways to stay rooted in God’s truth while engaging culture with the redemptive story of the gospel—no matter the cost. 


Because, after all, if we live according to the gospel, we’re going to make waves. The way of Christ is countercultural. It doesn’t go with the flow, compromise on truth, or stay silent in the face of neither can we. 


It's time to stand up, stand strong, and live with bold faith in a confused culture.
