OK, SO…It’s been a while since I updated my blog….I actually have a new blog which I have been posting to (more about that to come)
Exciting news…I published my first book this week- ‘Sermon notes for teens‘- it’s actually more of a guided journal than a book and, it was birthed out of a desire to help teens get organized and dig deeper into God’s Word during the service. Teaching teens how to take good sermon notes will help them to build good habits for life. And hopefully get them to revisit the sermon 😉
My two teen-aged kids (well, Zack will be 13 soon) was the inspiration behind me putting this book together.
I have two other books I’m currently working on…hopefully they will be available in time for Christmas. (more to come about that too)
Sermon notes for teens is a basic yet fun note taking journal, it’s designed to help teens remain actively engaged during church service by taking meaningful notes. It contains 52 simple one-page templates designed to promote active listening and deeper thinking.
This book allows teens to easily record these key sermon elements:
-Date and Speaker
-Key Bible verses
-Application(what this means to them)
It is suggested for ages 13 and up.
A few deets:
The book can be purchased right now on Amazon.com and Amazon.Europe:
(it can take 6-8weeks to appear in other channels: bookstores, libraries etc)
This is what it looks like….I designed the outer cover too 🙂 I was very pleased with how it looks and feels (was printed with a matte finish..very suede-like) The book measures 8″x10″
Inside the book there is a sample page showing teens how to use the template:
52 Sermons (a year’s worth) can be recorded in this book. I intentionally left out page numbers to give the book a more ‘journal’ appeal.
The template I came up with is simple and basic, yet allows for teens to get into a listening and writing rhythm. I believe that God speaks to his people collectively and in a unique way during church service, children included. Although the pages are fun and light they do not distract with games, jokes, or template variation. I’m hoping that the intentional structure of this book will help teens focus on using it as a study tool and not a distraction.
I love this verse: Tim 2:15
There you have it! My first book 🙂 Thanks for reading.
