Though nearly 2,000 years have passed since Paul wrote his letters, teens today are facing many of the same issues as the Philippians, Colossians, and Thessalonians. They may be experiencing angst or hurt, or hearing messages contrary to what they know to be true about the Gospel. They're probably even dealing with questions about sexuality and morality. By studying the practical letters, teenagers will learn ways to faithfully cope with the trials of their day to day lives. Through engaging activities and thought provoking questions, they will learn how to find joy in their journey, discover practical instructions of faith, and receive encouragement for times of trial.
