Getting Started

We are so excited about these BRAND NEW releases from authors Priscilla Shirer and Kelly Minter. Both are great studies to help you kick off a new year of discipleship with girls. If you have not used one of our studies before, we hope this helps you choose a study and get started.

What are the studies about?


Girls are constantly trying to answer this question: “Who am I?” It can be overwhelming, especially when there are so many influences trying to provide the answer––both positive and negative. The only way we really know who we are is by knowing the One who has the authority to define us. Defined for teen girls––written by Priscilla Shirer––is an 8-session Bible studies that will examine spiritual truths from Ephesians and help students have a better understanding of their God-given identity through Christ.

Finding God Faithful 

No doubt there have been, or will be, times in your life when your circumstances lead you to wonder if God is there, if He cares, and if things are slipping out of His control. Surely similar thoughts ran through Joseph’s mind as he suffered through betrayal, false accusations, and imprisonment. But throughout his story, we are constantly reminded of God’s faithfulness. No matter what we walk through, God’s presence is constant, His provision is enough, and His purposes are unstoppable. 

How are the studies structured?

Each session contains two parts: a weekly group discussion and daily personal studies.

The group discussion takes place at the beginning of each week, and there are several questions provided to spur conversation and guide group discussion.

As you close each group time, encourage girls to complete the personal study on their own before you meet again. This is the time in which God will cement the ideas and concepts presented in group!

Finally, there is a leader guide (located at the back of the study book) filled with fun activities, prayer cues, etc. that will help you facilitate each week’s group time.

What do I need to lead this study effectively?

No matter which study you choose, you’ll want to grab one Leader Kit ($59.99) for your group and a Student Book ($13.99) for everyone who is participating.
