We intend to be part of the solution … won’t you join us?

KNOXVILLE, TN, February 14, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — In a day and age where we are globally connected more than we have ever been in the history of the earth, it is well-researched and documented that teenagers are reporting more feelings of loneliness and teenage suicide is more prevalent than ever before. For those of us who have chosen to bravely love and walk alongside the next generation, we must understand that the need for mentorship within the context of relationships for teens in our lives.

During the 2010s decade, while Kendra was in her 20s and Kenya was in her teenage years, they had the opportunity to create a mentorship that impacted both of them deeply. The narrative around the next generation is not always one full of hope and belief. It takes a certain type of person to pour their lives into teenagers where they often do more seed planting than reaping the harvest of their labor.

Through her experiences in youth development in public education, higher education, sports, non-profits, and faith-based organizations, Kendra Berry has directly experienced how adults who are committed to mentoring students can positively impact the trajectory of their lives. She has spent most of the last decade serving in student ministry as a small group leader and more recently in student ministry leadership at Faith Promise Church. Kendra is passionate about all young people having someone in their corner who is committed to knowing them fully, loving them deeply, and helping them grow and develop.

Student-athlete and ministry leader are the roles that have marked most of Kenya Sloan’s life up until this point. Her roles in ministry have set her up to talk to, understand, and be compassionate towards all types of people. Her hope is that by sharing the story of how her mentor Kendra was obedient to God and loved her well, other such relationships will be encouraged and thus impact the lives of teenagers exponentially.

As a resource that has already received glowing reviews from readers across the US, Kendra and Kenya inspire hope. “Can We Go To Lunch” is written for those looking for healing, comfort and connection to those mentors within their lives.
