VERVE MIDDLE SCHOOL LESSON - 4/19/20

ROOTED | A series on change.

//THINK ABOUT THIS: One of the biggest hurdles for students in this phase of life is self-awareness. At this age, most middle schoolers struggle to even know they need to make a change because they lack the self-awareness to see it. And if they do happen to know where they need to change, actually having the maturity and initiative to make that change can still be a challenge. That’s why it’s so important to respond with positive feedback when you see a student both recognize an area they need to change in their life and take the steps to make that change. 


//ASK THIS:

-       What’s one way change can be a positive thing in our lives?

-       How would your life be different if nothing ever changed?

-       In what ways can change help you mature and grow?

-       What’s one area of your life where you could make a small change for the better?

-       This week, what’s one step you can take toward making that change?



VERVE HIGH SCHOOL LESSON - 4/19/20

SUBJECT TO CHANGE | A series on change.

THINK ABOUT THIS: 

Parents – until high school, students typically wait on adults to assign challenges or positive changes for them. This is the first time they’ve really had the freedom and ability to challenge themselves to do something new. So they may need your encouragement and guidance as they decide who they are, what they want for themselves, and how they can accomplish it.

 

ASK YOUR TEEN THIS: 


-   What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever challenged yourself to do?

- What’s something you’ve been meaning to change, but haven’t gotten around to?

- Which of the following typically keep you from making a change?

- You’re afraid to fail.

- You’re afraid to stand out.

- You don’t want to seem judgmental.

- It seems overwhelming.

- What’s one benefit of challenging yourself to change, even if you fail?

- What’s one area of your life where you feel like God might be challenging you in order to grow you?
