Sticks and Stones by Andrew Horton. Published by Covenant Communications.

Andrew Horton is simply entertaining to listen to. He reminds me a lot of John Bytheway in his style and humor. What a gift he has to inspire our youth today to do better and live more righteously. In "Sticks and Stones", he talks a lot about some of the stupid things youth do to be accepted or get some attention. Brother Horton keeps you laughing as he describes some of the dumb things he did in his youth. One of the things not to be missed in this talk is an experience he shares about his seminary class and the temptation (or lack of it!) to eat goat droppings.

Brother Horton engages the youth with his humor and then leaves very poignant messages about the importance of teaming up with the Savior in life and also about resisting peer pressure and the importance of friends that encourage you to be more like the Savior.
