7th Grade- Remember being in seventh grade? It’s a year filled with transformation and transition: The world literally feels like it’s increasing in size, school starts to get tougher, bodies are going through all kinds of crazy changes, and students find that they have to do a lot of focusing to stay on track with schoolwork and life. And faith begins to take on new dimensions and new meaning, too.

8th Grade-Eighth grade marks the culmination of the middle school/junior high years. Finally, these students are at the top of the heap, the pinnacle at their school. But it only lasts one year—and then suddenly they return to the bottom of the food chain as a freshman.

Freshman- This is it: the beginning of a new adventure, a new chapter in life, a new opportunity to forge an identity in a fresh setting. The freshman year marks a teenager’s first time for every high school experience: first day, first football game, first pop quiz, and even some of the first major temptations. It’s also a year filled with some really important questions: How can I make wise choices? How can I create good habits? How can I make faith a priority, not just another thing in my life? Lars Rood is your students’ guide for this adventure.

Sophomore- Find yourself as you seek God with Stepping Into Maturity. This 30-day devotional for high school students offers helpful guidance on dealing with and understanding yourself and others as you grow in your faith. Each devotion includes a Think About section, What the World Thinks, an Act section that encourages you to apply key truths in the devotion, and a Read section for further study.

Junior- This could be the most important year of a teenagers’ high school career-but it may not always feel like it to that student. As juniors, teenagers face deadlines on college applications. They qualify for varsity sports, lead roles in performances, and leadership positions on campus. They feel a new sense of significance. Yet because they’re not yet seniors, things won’t quite feel perfect or resolved. Fortunately, Lars Rood understands the paradox of the junior year.

Senior- This is it! Your students have reached the pinnacle of the high school food chain! They’ve finally become seniors! Now what? Here’s the crazy thing about the senior year: It often starts with a sprint as students finish applications, make big decisions, and prepare for life after high school. But then they wait. And then senioritis usually kicks in. Lars Rood remembers what his senior year was like, and as a pastor and a former teacher,
