Eighth grade marks the culmination of your middle school/junior high years. Finally, you're at the top of the heap, the pinnacle at your school!
But it only lasts one year--and then suddenly you're knocked back to the bottom of the food chain as a freshman. Yikes! But dont worry: You can lead well in the few short months you get to do it. How does that happen? By following Jesus, leading yourself, and then leading others.
Remember being in seventh grade? It's a year filled with transformation and transition: The world literally feels like it's increasing in size, school starts to get tougher, bodies are going through all kinds of crazy changes, and students find that they have to do a lot of focusing to stay on track with schoolwork and life. And faith begins to take on new dimensions and new meaning, too.
Thats why this 30-day devotional will guide young teenagers through some of the biggest changes and challenges of this year, including handling doubt and questions, using a wise media filter, dealing with all the physical changes of early adolescence, and making choices that will build their faith.
