ENGAGE IN EVERYDAY MOMENTS TOGETHER
As your teen starts their day, share a verse that has encouraged you lately.
At a meal this week, have everyone answer this question: “What is something you’ve learned about God lately or understood more deeply because of what you read in the Bible or heard in a verse?”
Does your teen have doubts about God? Have them write their doubts down on post-it notes and put them in a public place. Encourage them to commit to being open to learning more over time. Affirm that doubts are welcome. God’s not afraid of them, and you don’t have to be either.
Pray that God’s Word, the Bible, will come alive for both you and your teen.
