Find yourself as you seek God with Making Faith Your Priority. This 30-day devotional for high school students offers helpful guidance on dealing with and understanding yourself and others as you grow in your faith. Each devotion includes a Think About section, What the World Thinks, an Act section that encourages you to apply key truths in the devotion, and a Read section for further study.
THIS IS IT: the beginning of a new adventure, a new chapter in your life, a new opportunity to forge your identity in a fresh setting.
Your freshman year marks your first time for every high school experience: your first day, your first football game, your first pop quiz, and even some of your 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 is your guide for this adventure. He's 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 will walk you 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 you read--it's a book that leads to action.
