In the Wisdom On … series, you’ll find case studies, personal inventories, interactive activities, and helpful insights from the book of Proverbs, which will show you what wise living looks like. Wisdom On … Making Good Decisions examines how teens get to make a lot of decisions in their lives— even decisions that can have a big impact on their future. There’s no ‘magic’ formula to getting it right. Making good decisions takes wisdom, and in this book students will learn how to gain more wisdom and put it to use in the choices they make.
