Vital Skills: How to Exercise Your Independence

Ross, Casey (Author)


This exciting series of resources gives youth in grades 7–12 the skills necessary to live an effective Christian life. Instead of just talking to students about how they should live, Vital Skills shows them by blending simple instruction with real-life experience on a variety of timely topics.

Although it's designed as a comprehensive stand-alone series, this discipleship series is a terrific follow-up for those who have used the Vital Truth series. Youth ministers and leaders will be thrilled with this series because:
• It's written on a basic level, so no outside preparation is required for students.
• It's easy to use and is written with the busy youth leader in mind.
• Each book includes four sessions of biblical study that show students how to learn the skill, and lead them to practice it.
• It features reproducible worksheets for students.
• It offers daily quiet time guides to help teens continue their discipleship experience all week long.
• It includes an inspirational leader article and specific helps for teaching.
• It's available in a cost-saving quarterly, three–book packet (see the LifeWay Dated Order Form for the most current available three-book packet) with a weekly plan for teaching Sunday morning or Sunday night as well as a seasonal session of study; or available as individual books.
• Each session of study is designed to inspire and equip youth to learn key skills.
• Each session is full of stories and imagery that captures the attention and imagination of today's teenagers.
• Each session engages youth in a life-transforming way.
• It's all interactive and fun!

This particular edition (How to Exercise Your Independence) helps students: gain trust by being trustworthy, balance their independence with the needs of others, and learn to become interdependent. (4 sessions)
