About the book

More teenagers than ever before seem to be spinning their wheels a long time before gaining any traction in life. Based on the world-renowned Experiencing God teachings of Henry Blackaby, Seven Steps to Knowing and Doing the Will of God for Teens provides students with relevant spiritual direction as they move toward adulthood.

Throughout, authors Tom, Mike, and Daniel Blackaby (Henry Blackaby's son and grandsons) utilize fun formatting with cartoon illustrations, jokes, real-life stories, and graphically engaging treatments to bring strong focus to a message teenagers need in their often random settings.

My Thoughts

This book was also part of a package deal with two other titles linked to the Experiencing God at Home.   If you are familiar with the book Experiencing God, you will immediately recognized the name Blackaby and know a bit of what the book is about.   After many  years of transforming believers throughout the world, the Experiencing God book has been adapted in order to help you transform your household.  Today, I am presenting the book that is specifically written for teens by non other than members of the Blackaby family!   The idea behind this book is  to allow teens to go deeper in their relationship with God.  Packed with cartoon illustrations, true-life stories, and fresh graphics I find that the book has a look that will grasp the attention of teens.

The table of content is simple yet direct at the same time.   It will start with what it means to know and doing God’s will.   I will be honest, I wish I would have read this book while I was in my teenage years.  But it wasn’t the case and I hope to instill a love for God to my kids.   We want them to experience God in their life in ways we haven’t while growing up.   My oldest son has just turned twelve this week and I want him to live a life fulfilling God’s plans for him.   Consequently, I have decided that this book will be part of his 7th grade homeschool curriculum in September.     The book will help him to discover God at work around him, to realize that He is pursuing him, that He invites him to be involved in His work, that He speaks through the Holy Spirit, and that obedience will allow to fully experience Him in our lives.

At the end of each chapter, you will find a section titled “Walking With God” which will  allow your teen to jolt down answers to questions based on the reading material he/she has done in the chapter.   These sections will allow your child to discover God in his/her life and help him/her to grow spiritually in a deeper relationship with God.

I strongly believe that this book will help many teens to understand God better and realize that He is not dead after all.   It is am amazing resource to guide your teen into experiencing God’s will in their own life whether they are going at school or being homeschool.
