By Lars Rood

For the students in your ministry, THIS IS IT: the beginning of a new adventure, a new chapter in their lives, a new opportunity to forge their identities in a fresh setting.

A teenager's freshman year marks their first time for every high school experience: their first day, their first football game, their first pop quiz, and even some of their first major temptations. It's also a year filled with some really important questions: How can you make wise choices? How can you create good habits? How can you make faith a priority, not just another "thing" in your life?

Lars Rood, the author of this teen devotional about student discipleship, wants to help guide your teenagers through this adventure. Lars is a pastor, an author, a former high school teacher, and the dad of three children who aren't too far away from beginning their own high school journeys.

Each entry in this devotional book for teens will walk them through an important moment, issue, or opportunity that defines your freshman year, along with ideas on living out what you believe. In other words, this isn't just a book your teens will read—it's a youth devotion book that will lead to action.
