MEANT TO BE: A 4-WEEK SERIES ON THE BIBLE

SERIES OVERVIEW:
The Bible. We all know reading it is important (or at least that’s what we’ve been told), but if we’re being honest, we probably don’t give it the time or attention we know we should. Sometimes we avoid Scripture because it seems boring or irrelevant. Other times we avoid it because it’s too time-consuming, inconvenient, or maybe even convicting. So how do we change that? In this 4-week series, you’ll encourage students to both see and engage with the Bible in a new way as you help them discover that the Bible is a love letter, a guide, an invitation, and something that’s meant to be lived (not just read).

Since you’ve known your teenager for a pretty long time, you might sometimes assume you know everything there is to know about your kid. But here’s the thing. They’re changing. Like, a lot. This month, be a student of your teenager. Ask great questions so you can learn more about who they are right now.

If you’re subscribed to Grow Your Ministry, now would be a good time to attach Parent Tip Video #8 from your Parents section.

Ever wished your teenager would just listen to you already? What about talk? Ever wished they would open up just a little bit more? We get it. So do Adele Faber & Elaine Mazlish, authors of How to Talk so Teens Will Listen and Listen So Teens Will Talk.
