10-Minute Moments: The Basics will help students in their spiritual journey, whether they're new followers of Jesus or have been Christ-followers for years. The truths in this book aren't called "basic" because they're childish or simplistic; they're "basic" because they're foundational and essential to leading a life that honors God.
Teenagers will discover a fresh understanding about God from the Gospel of John, one of the clearest and most-read books of the Bible. They'll explore the fundamental beliefs and teachings of Jesus, and they'll encounter a deeper of everything God has done for us. Each day's reading only takes about 10 minutes-a great step toward building a personal habit of daily time with God.
This engaging book is a daily devotional that's set up as a journal. Students read a Bible passage, chew on a few questions, consider some suggestions for prayer topics, and then write down their thoughts in their book-or engage in an experiential idea based on that day's theme. It's a one-month plan that's easy to read and easy to stick with.
Use 10-Minute Moments: The Basics as part of a small group or retreat, as a graduation gift or a birthday gift, or just have them available to students in your youth ministry.
