We all know that the teen years can be tough. There are so many pressures on teens to look and act in certain ways, and sometimes it can be difficult to know how to lead them. However, there’s no better way to encourage your teen girl than to come alongside her in the study of the Word. And we want to point you to some of our favorite resources to do this!
Each of the studies below have product options for both women and teens so that you can study the same books or topics, but in your own specific context. Here’s our roundup of Bible studies to do with a teen in your life!
With Us in the Wilderness by Lauren Chandler | 7 Sessions
The book of Numbers is a story of identity, wilderness, and God. While it accounts for 39 years of wilderness roaming, it’s also a story of God’s presence among His beloved. In this in-depth study of the book of Numbers and God’s people, you and your teen will discover how even when they rebelled—and this book tells of many rebellions—God’s love and promises remained. It’s in that love and those promises the children of Israel found their identity and where we must find ours today.
He’s Where the Joy Is by Tara-Leigh Cobble | 7 Sessions
Join Tara-Leigh Cobble as she breaks down the intimidating doctrine of the Trinity. You and your teen will discover a beautiful, foundational view of our Triune God that will transform how you relate to Him. Understanding God’s three-in-oneness and each of the Persons of God individually—Father, Son, and Spirit—will lead all of you to deeper intimacy with God and greater joy in knowing Him!
Anxious by Scarlet Hiltibidal | 8 Sessions
Learn how we can practically take hold of the perfect peace that is only available through God as we dive deeply into His Word, embrace the practice of prayer, and live authentically in the support of our communities of faith.
Encountering God by Kelly Minter | 7 Sessions
Spiritual disciplines are essential to a more vibrant spiritual life and knowing God more intimately. Join Kelly Minter as she unpacks the biblical foundation for these sacred habits along with approachable ways to practice spiritual disciplines. Instead of being just one more thing on your to-do list, you’ll find that these habits of faith can create more margin in your life—providing peace and rest as you walk closer with Jesus.
Jude by Jackie Hill Perry | 7 Sessions
While often overlooked, the book of Jude remains as relevant today as the time it was written. God has commanded His beloved church to do the necessary work of contending for the faith in a world of unbelief, and as we do, He will keep us from falling into the same deception. In this study, you and your teen will dive into themes of being called, loved, and kept, and learn how to point others to Jesus in grace and truth.
Elijah by Priscilla Shirer | 7 Sessions
Join Priscilla Shirer on this 7-session journey through the life and times of the prophet Elijah to discover how the fire on Mount Carmel was forged in the valley of famine. And how the emboldened, fiery faith you desire is being fashioned by God in your life right now.
Isaiah by Melissa Spoelstra | 7 Sessions
Following God isn’t about striving; it’s about trusting. As you study the chapters Isaiah wrote, you and your teen will learn to rest in God’s promises and grow in trust. Isaiah’s words will reveal that you can trust God more than your own human effort or the counterfeits the world suggests. You won’t be striving harder, but instead trusting more deeply the Faithful One who is so worthy of our utter dependence. In Him, you’ll find the comfort and peace you need to sustain you.
Everyday Theology by Mary Wiley | 8 Sessions
Theology is the study of God, what He has done, is doing, and will do in the world. And it’s not just for those with formal education or those who work at your church. It’s for you in your everyday moments, questions, and decisions. Our theology is the basis of our faith and touches every part of our existence. In this study, you and your teen will explore 8 essential doctrines and come to know God more deeply as you examine these foundational truths.
TruthFilled by Ruth Chou Simons | 7 Sessions
Join Ruth Chou Simons in her study of the book of Colossians as she leads us through a practice of preaching gospel truth to ourselves by studying Paul’s example. Today’s culture offers no shortage of self-help, easy fixes, and worldly advice, but only the truth of God’s Word was meant to fill you up and satisfy you fully.
The Gospel on the Ground by Kristi McLelland | 7 Sessions
Come along with biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland as she unpacks the life of the early church in the book of Acts and shows us that the kingdom of God is always on the move, always looking outward to bring meaning and joy to a world searching for true fulfillment and hope. Explore the call of Jesus to His disciples then and to us today, see how God’s Word can sustain us even in the most difficult of times, and embrace the transformative grace we experience as children of God in His kingdom of celebration.
