Our middle school girls are told a lot about who they’re supposed to be. Media and culture have a great influence over how they behave, dress, and think, and more often than not, it’s not a very becoming image. For anyone who works with middle school girls, you want to help them become something more—the young women God has created them to be.

Becoming book 1 is an eight-week study that will help young girls discover who they truly are, and help them see who they can become. Using games, activities, quizzes, projects and crafts, movie clips, music, and stories, you’ll get your girls involved in a study that will help them find their true value. In this study, your small group of middle school girls will:
* know their true value and develop self-respect
* gain a godly perspective on body image and modesty
* learn to set goals and boundaries
* begin to understand their feelings
* accept who they are

Show the girls in your group that becoming a woman is about more than clothes, makeup, and boyfriends. Help them understand what it means to become a woman of God.

** After you’ve shown girls how to become women of God, take them to the next step. In Becoming book 2, they’ll learn how to deal with everyday life issues like godly young women.

The Male and the Manly: The lie of two-tiered masculinity that we’re peddling in the church

Kenny winced as the needle pressed into his skin.  Then he set his jaw. The pain felt good. Manly. He thought about the “men” back on campus. The guy who held the door for him as he walked into class. The music major who was humming a Disney song in the dorm hallway. He wished…

Within our culture, we’re trained to identify ourselves with our occupation, as if it’s the most defining quality about you. Walking around the National Youth Workers Convention…
