Middle school is one of the toughest two to three years of our lives. So this series provides students with a Swiss army knife of awesomeness to help them survive the years to come. In this four-part wisdom series, we discuss four different tools that will help students succeed in every area of their lives.

Week 1: Making Good Friends // Who You Befriend Is Who You Become (John 15:15, Proverbs 18:24, Proverbs 13:20, Proverbs 27:5-6, Provers 27:17)

Week 2: Three Wise Choices // Wisdom Isn't Wise Until It's Lived Out (Proverbs 4:7, James 4:14, 1 Peter 2:2, Matthew 7:7, Joshua 1:8)

Week 3: Learning To Speak // Own Your Words Before They Own You (Proverbs 18:21, James 3:3-12, Luke 6:45)

Week 4: Leading Today // God Made You The Most Influential Person (Proverbs 22:4, 1 Timothy 4:12, Ephesians 4:1, 1 Corinthians 11:1)

Notes from the editor: This is an excellent series. Some of the best content I've edited so far. I would definitely have been thrilled to use this in my past life as a middle school pastor.

This was a great series to kick off with!
These were really well written for middle schoolers. These lessons were longer that we needed but were super simple to manipulate to fit our youth group.
Great study for both high school and Middle school
We will use this to dove tail with sermon series and reinforce the message, thank you

Free Ebook by Doug Fields

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.

Thank YOU!
