Preteen Bible Study for Girls

James: Following God’s Road Signs

A 27 Week Bible Study on the Book of James for preteen girls.
Includes 7 cool art projects that bring alive God’s Word!

James: Following God’s Road Signs is written to encourage and deepen the faith of preteen girls. Let’s face it, life is not easy. We need a road map that will guide us in the right direction. God wants us to focus on Him ~ especially when circumstances take unexpected U-turns. James will teach preteen girls how to: be joyful when they go through hard times, really listen to others, put their faith into action, treat others with kindness, and be wise. They’ll learn about drawing near to God with humility, mercy, and grace. Students will discover that prayer can be very powerful when we surrender our will and follow His.

Each week James: Following God’s Road Signs focuses on a few verses allowing dig-deep discussion and personal application. Each lesson includes a personal story relating the passage to everyday life with an Additional Sightseeing section to deepen the girl’s faith. Every four weeks, an art project is provided to reflect the meaning of that particular section. All projects have attached Scripture and by the end of the study, the girls will have the entire book of James on their art!

After 27 lessons and 7 art projects, your girls will be ready to face life as a confident, merciful preteen. James: Following God’s Road Signs will empower their walk with Christ and give them confidence as they walk the halls of their school. No more excuses for getting lost, Following God’s Road Signs will always lead you into the right direction!
