Hey, I'm Tim! In the DYM world, I'm probably best known as "the Crowd Charades guy," and I love it whenever someone shows me a photo of their students playing that game! DYM helped me get through my first few years of youth ministry, and I hope that my resources can be that for other youth workers. More than anything, I love the community I've found through DYM.

I live in Nashville, Tennessee with my amazing wife, Becca. She's a Dove Award-winning graphic designer who helps keep my DYM content looking fresh! We love to travel, listen to music, and eat good pizza that's way too fancy for a lock-in.

I'd love to hear from you... please say hello on Twitter or Instagram: @timwildsmith

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
