THINK ABOUT THIS

It's Personal is a five-week series that focuses on ways in which Jesus makes it personal by pursuing us, knowing us, valuing us, and loving us just as we are. The goal of this series is two-fold. One, it's to help students inwardly develop a growing personal relationship with Jesus. And two, it's to encourage students to look outward by applying some of the same principles Jesus uses to love and value them to the way they love and value others.

Daily Cues

Morning Time

One of the simplest ways to show others value is by knowing and using their name. So this week, have a conversation with your kid about their name. Talk to them about the origin of it, where it came from, what it means, and why you chose it specifically for them.
 

Drive Time

Understanding someone else’s backstory may be difficult for your kid, but it’s an important life skill for them to learn. To help, share some of your own backstory with your kid this week. Give them some insight into something that shaped who you are and the things you care about now. 

Meal Time

Find a few old t-shirts, pieces of poster board, or any blank canvas to write on this week. Give one to each member of your family and ask them to decorate it with things that matter or are important to them right now. Then, have everyone wear or bring it to dinner and share what matters to them with your family.
 

Bed Time

Your middle schooler needs to be reminded of how much you love them, no matter what they do or don’t do! To help them believe and internalize this, take the time to consistently repeat this phase to them: “I love you no matter what.” The more you say it, the more they’ll come to believe it and see you as a safe, loving place they can come to with anything.
