Expectations for Teens

One of the things our church wants to be all about is setting high expectations for our young people.  In keeping with that, listen to John Piper preach a sermon that is a great challenge to young people and their parents.  (Click here).

 Or, order this book: Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations

I haven’t read it yet, but I’m hearing great things about it including an endorsement from Piper. I’m sure there will be one circulated around our house soon.

Oh now that’s funny…I just ordered this book a couple days ago! I’m just waiting for it to come in the mail. Great minds think alike I guess. 🙂

One of the things I try to emphasize is that you can treat teens in one of two ways, either as big kids or young adults.

I go with the latter and wish more youth programs did.
