SCRIPTURE STUDY GUIDES
Why should teens have their own study guide?
In 2018, President Russell M. Nelson said about the youth, “Our Heavenly Father has reserved many of His most noble spirits—perhaps, I might say, His finest team—for this final phase. Those noble spirits—those finest players, those heroes—are you!” They need to see the scriptures applied to their lives and they need to be empowered to take their place as the leaders. Most of us learn by asking good questions. These lessons are designed to first give a quick bite formula at the top of the lesson, then some suggested questions by verse to open up discussions that hopefully lead them to ask their own, better and more applicable questions. I can’t emphasize enough that the youth right now need to be asking their own questions. They need to see the scriptures are meant for our day to draw all to Jesus Christ. This is especially true about the Book of Mormon. Lastly, these lessons are set up to also have the youth teach the lessons themselves. I’ve tested these out on my own children and the ten-year-old to the seventeen-year-old have been able to follow the format. Sometimes they even get into the material enough to modify the lessons to fit their own voice or gospel questions.
