This resource provides a weekly reflection piece for teens that aims specifically at helping them to integrate their faith into their lives more fully. Each weekly resource includes a scripture reflection, a challenge for action, and reflection questions. This resource speaks to the third goal of the USCCB’s “Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry”: “To foster the total personal growth of each young person.” Parents, Catholic high school teachers, and catechists often find that teens compartmentalize themselves, and may demonstrate faith-filled actions within the church or youth ministry setting, but behave very differently in other areas of their lives. Teens often mold their actions to obtain the approval of those around them, and may be one way at church, another way at home, and another way with their friends. This resource aims to help them to see the importance and rewards of integrating their faith into their life at home, school, church, in sports and activities, with friends, and even online.
