Brian Perry and Luke Grim are the creators of these16things.com. Brian is a long-time listener of TSP and got the original idea when he heard Jack’s podcast titled, “15 Things to Teach Kids that Government Schools Never Will“. Brian is a Christian, husband, has 7 kids, homeschools his kids (his wife does all the work), and owns his own painting and pressure washing business.
He used to be the typical adult male – out of shape, ate a poor diet and worried more about watching sports than taking care of himself. Since finding Jack’s show, he has changed his diet, is in much better shape, raises chickens and has a small garden.
Luke is a Christian, husband, father of 8 kids, homeschools his kids (again, his wife does), retired Army and teaches 12th grade Government at an online high school. Luke was brought into this project recently because Brian values Luke’s ability to teach. Luke is especially good at discussing today’s “woke” culture and why/how most of it is built on lies and deception.
Together they created a project called These 16 Things. Their mission can be summed up as teaching things that schools don’t. To prepare kids for a self-sufficient life when they are ready to leave the house and live on their own. To prepare parents to have critical conversations necessary to move kids in the right direction, which includes: knowing truth, taking a stance for Christ, having confidence with humility, and standing against the pull of modern-day culture.

Finding opportunities to serve others locally is really not hard at all
There are secular and faith based groups all over the country that are begging for volunteers
Getting out of the house and actually doing it is whats hard
A little harder sometimes to find things that parents and kids can do together, but teenagers are usually welcome to join a parent.
From a personal benefit standpoint, I’d expect an 18 year old fresh out of HS, or a 22 year old fresh out of college looking for a job that puts on his resume “volunteer xyz organization 2019-present” has a leg up on someone whose only experience is school
