    I personally like to add Revelation 3:20 and the promise if you open your heart to Christ, He comes into your life. Since we give students the opportunity to receive Christ at most of our meetings some think they need to pray and ask Christ in over and over.

    Thanks for the suggestion Nicole. You can find the PDF’s on the PRINT tab at the top of the page. We have considered making whole PDF packs (like all of the first year’s studies in one PDF) but because we are constantly getting feedback and making changes, that would involve more work that we can do right now. But it’s something we are considering doing in the future to make it easier for people. I’d love to hear more about your thoughts on this, though – anything that could help us improve the product and help more people go deeper in their walks with Jesus! Thanks!

    A good ending question to help students see God as a personal being, “What kind of God must He be to have this written for us?”

    My personal answer would go something like this, “He obviously knows how much we worry and waffle about if we truly have a relationship or not. He knows passages like Matthew 7 where Jesus says to an ‘elite ministry team’ who cast out demons and do MANY MIGHT works…’Depart from Me, I never knew you.’ He knows we will need assurance and He obviously wants to give us that. It would be hard to interact with a God who might ‘cut us from the team’ at any moment. But THIS GOD! He cares about my anxieties and wants to absorb them into Himself. What a good, good Father.”

    Gospel music. You hear it?

    This is minor. When you click on the bible verses, could you change the coding to open in a new tab instead of the same window? 🙂

    I’m trying this study with a couple of 10 yr old girls who I don’t think have too many ideas about dating relationships (yet). So I would suggest changing the “Launch” situation to something like this: my friend’s parents are going through a divorce. And then you could use the same questions you ask in the Launch section of the study.

      Thanks for the suggestion Nancy! That is a great launch tweak for younger students. Thanks for sharing your idea with the community!

        Thanks for the suggestion, Casey. We actually made an intentional decision to not make the links open a new tab. Most of our users will be using these studies on our phones and on the phone browsers that we tested, it is easier to navigate a study if the links don’t open a new tab. But, as we’re testing, if anyone feels like we’re wrong on that, please let us know! We can always change it.

    This material is so good! Its very helpful and very transferable. The only thing that I think would make it better if it were in an app. We have many students that use wifi to save data and if they could download an app to be able to use it when there is no wifi access that would be huge!

      CJ, Thank for your input. We can look into making an app out of it but that probably won’t happen until we complete the three years worth of material. Thanks for the idea!

    Hebrews 13:5 is amazing in the Amplified Bible. I would encourage leaders to read it from there to make it crystal clear as to God never leaving them.

    I wasn’t able to print the leader’s guide for Confidence. And all other leader’s guide and student guide say “Error: limitcheck, Offending command: image.” Guessing you are aware of it and it might be a permissions thing.
    On a first look though, I really like these.

    This lesson lends itself so much to the train diagram. May want to build it in?
