It’s been a busy year for us here at Fringe.  We’re having more opportunities to speak into communities around our area as well as an ever-increasing broader scope.  Some of our highlights were working with Access Living in Chicago, Simply Youth Ministry Conference by Group Publishing, and simply meeting with parents and students throughout the state of Illinois.  2013 looks promising as we look to publish resources for those working with adolescents that are at-risk. 

The most read blog posts give us an idea of what is important to you and what resources are needed most.  In 2012 you read the following posts more than any other.
