Keys for Kids Ministries is developing a daily teen devotional! We're actively seeking submissions for the devotional, which is set to launch in 2019.

Below are the current writer's guidelines for the teen devotional. Since this project is still in development, these guidelines may change, but right now we're inviting both teens and adults to submit devotional pieces that fit a variety of forms and genres. If you'd like to be added to the list of writers interested in receiving updates on the teen devotional, please email

Writer's Guidelines for Teen Devotionals

Submit a gospel-centered devotional piece of 300-350 words - whether it be an essay, poem, personal story, fiction, or other written art form. Connect God's story with any topic you see in the world. How does Jesus fit into what you are wondering about, writing about, or experiencing?

Also include:

  • your name and mailing address
  • a group of 1-10 verses for people to read before the devotion.
  • 2-5 discussion questions (up to 65 words total) for after the devotion (optional verse references for guidance may be included)
  • a key verse - what is the Bible verse you want people to walk away remembering?


Please send teen devotional submissions to


$30 on acceptance


Authors must be at least 13 years old. If you are not a teenager, we welcome your submissions (and the wisdom your age brings), asking only that you consider your audience carefully. How does your devotional piece add gospel-centered value to your young adult readers as they navigate today's world?

PLEASE NOTE: Content submitted must be original. We are not able to republish content that has appeared in its current form in another publication or that has been posted on the web (such as a personal blog post). Email us at for further information.
