Having conversations with teenagers is a challenge. Having meaningful conversations with teenagers can feel impossible at times!
Drawing on her experience as a mom, ministry founder, and Life Purpose Coach®, Dr. Katie Brazelton offers insights and wisdom in How Your Teenager is Wired on understanding how teenagers are wonderfully and uniquely createdÑand how to transform that understanding into dynamic conversations about who they are, how God wired them, and where their lives are headed.
In How Your Teenager is Wired, you'll discover the three calls on the life of each Christian and how you can explore these calls with your teenager: the primary call of being transformed into Christ-likeness; the secondary call of thriving in seasonal roles; and the "This I Must Do" call to be part of something that is larger than yourself, unfeasible to do on your own, and impossible to ignore.
You'll learn how to have the best possible parent-teenager relationship, why teenagers genuinely do want to understand their life purpose, how to amaze your teenagers with your conversational skills, and how to launch them into answering God's call on their life.
Katie also provides engaging scripts and exercises to equip you to talk with your teenager about such important topics as:
- Understanding spiritual gifts, best qualities, and finest values
- Rethinking motives, relationships, and use of time
- Knowing strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats
- Praying for courage, perseverance, and miracles
- Writing a Lifetime Dream Statement
- Surrendering all to Jesus
