Help Reach our Goal of 1,000

P2Y User Map One wonderful thing about Pastor2Youth is that we have users from all around the world. It is fun, and exciting to see where everyone is from. There are over 22,000 registered members on It would be amazing to know where everyone is from. Well, now we have a chance to do that - it is simple, easy, and does not require much from you. Our goal is to try and get 1,000 of the users to add their location to our special map (see below).

Adding yourself to our map only takes a minute or two (at most). Please help us attain our goal by adding yourself to our map and trying to get a map filled with 1,000 people's locations - all around the world.

Ryan's Blog

Blog     A-"Muse"-Ing Thoughts Blog

On January 1, 2006 I started a New Blog titled A-"Muse"-Ing Thoughts:

A "Muse" is defined as "the source of an artist's inspiration." My inspiration comes from God. This blog is where I plan to share my thoughts... from serious to silly, and everything in between.

I am attempting to update this blog on a daily basis (or as close as I can). I would love it if you would stop by and visit, leave your comments, and I would also love to exchange blog links with you if you have your own blog as well. In addition, please share this blog with anyone you think might enjoy reading it. I hope to share from the heart and have things that will encourage, inspire, inform, and entertain - as I said above, from the serious to the silly.

I wanted to say a quick THANK YOU to Renee @ Youth Specialties for the shout out for "A-'Muse'-ing Thoughts" in the YS Update. 

I hope you will bookmark this blog and visit it often.  Also would love it if you would share any comments you have on any posts.  Even if it is just to share who you are and where you are from.  It's always fun to know.

Click HERE to visit my Blog.... hope to see you on the blogosphere soon!!!!
