    A: We have a couple of ideas for you. You could use Life Hurts God Heals with adults—you'd simply have to adapt it as you go and since it sounds as if you have used it with Teens, you are familiar with the content. The other resources that came to mind are our LifeTree Small Group Studies. Specifically Authentic Forgiveness, item number 9781470726850 or Finding Hope When Challenges Come item number 9781470720483 . Each of these contains 4 one hour sessions that are video-based. No leader guide or participant guide is required for these two programs. Each session features a real-life story related to the topic, a deep Bible connection, and on-screen questions designed to draw group members into thoughtful discussion and bring them closer to each other--—and to God! Please let us know if you have any other questions.

    "Upon arriving to our new Youth Group, we realized something wasn't right. We were able to pick up on deep hurts and damaging lifestyles from many of our students. LHGH was an incredible experience that led our students-our Youth Group-down a path of healing and forgiveness. We celebrated the end of LHGH by having a Sunday morning, student-led Worship Service. I preached a message summarizing LHGH and challenging our congregation to seek Christ for their hurts. I thank God for this material."
