Talk:  Others In My Life

The purpose of this talk is to describe how others influence who you are, how important others are in your life, and how these relationships inform you about your relationship to God.  The students will understand that other people are there to help, lead, and guide them in their lives.

Introduce yourself and your props (no more than 3):


The Talk:
Use these questions as prompts for brainstorming and writing your talk. Refer to the purpose of the talk above as well.

Describe three individuals who have had an effect on your life.  Who?  Why?  How?


What are your relationships like now?


What characteristics drew you to them?   How did they affect your life?  


Where would you be today without them?


How do they reflect your relationship with God and your faith?






This should connect to your topic and who you are.  It may be mainstream or Christian music, with no bad words or themes.  The song sheets are something the candidates take home to remember you and your song.  They must be typed on colored, white, or designed paper.  Be creative.  Let us know if you need help with copies.



This is your labor of LOVE.  It should relate to your talk and theme.  Plan to bring your supplies to our peer leader retreat and others can help make your gifts during our down time.  Do not spend more than $10.  If you need $$ or supplies, please let us know.  Be creative!  Sample ideas:

  • Prayer scroll with ribbon
  • Handmade cross
  • Ornament
  • Decade of the rosary with string and beads
  • Key chain
