The teenage years are prime for developing beliefs and habits that will serve as a foundation for a lifetime of following Jesus. Young women need to be prepared theologically for the practical challenges that will come during their teen years—challenges such as finding a sense of belonging, fluctuating emotions, and making decisions about their future. Through 10 practical lessons on topics related to identity in Christ, trusting God’s sovereignty, the importance of the church, the place of emotions, and more, this winsome book will teach girls how to seek maturity in Christ as they navigate the teenage years—setting them up to grow in godliness throughout the rest of their lives.
Studying God's Word as a teenager changed my life . . . And it can change yours, too.
The Bible is more than just an ancient religious document. It’s a book filled with the actual words of the living God, meant to be read often and studied deeply that we might experience its life-changing power.
If you’re a teen who’s tired of low expectations and weightless platitudes, this book will help you dig into the Bible and make the time you spend reading count for eternity. Katherine Forster walks you through three simple practices that changed how she reads Scripture—observation, interpretation, and application— so you too can begin to understand what God has said in his word and discover how God’s truth can literally transform you from the inside out.
I like football movies, sushi, and dark chocolate. But the biggest, most crucial, most significant thing about me is that my life's task is to follow Jesus. He is the One who changed my life.
That's what this book is about. It's for teenagers eager to reject the status quo and low standards our culture sets for us. It's for those of us who don't want to spend the adolescent years slacking off, but rather standing out and digging deeply into what Jesus says about following Him. This book will help you see how the truth about God changes everything - our relationships, our time, our sin, our habits, and more - freeing us to live joyful, obedient and Christ-exalting lives, even while we're young.
"This book is fearless, lucid, God focused, and gospel drenched, all applied in concrete practices... These precious years are not the time to slack off... it's the time to stand out. This book stands out as a valiant work from one teen serving other teens!"
