The goal of this series is to help train students to become "Love Ninjas." These five or six message will teach students what real love is (contrary to all the counterfeits the world calls "love") and how relationships work (and don't work) from the perspective of God's Word. (Plus, ninjas are awesome.) God is the original Love Grandmaster—He IS love. God invented love, sex, romance, and relationships. This resource can be used this as a standard 5-week (and optional 6th bonus week) series in youth group, or as the morning sessions at a week of youth camp, or in a long weekend intensive study. It's aimed primarily at high school, but you can adapt it for junior high or college students, as well.

Week 1 - Call Me Maybe You were made to live in relationship.

Week 2 - Shake It Off How to Get Into A Terrible Relationship, or How to Ruin A Great Relationship Never-fail Relationship Killers How to Tell if You're in a Bad Romance How to Break up Well

Week 3 - What a Girl Wants (and What a Guy Needs) Guys and Girls Don't Just Have Different Parts Why Are Guys Jerks? Why Are Girls Weird? How to Find and Keep the Really Good Ones Without Messing It Up

Week 4 - Sexy Back Looking at Sexuality Through a New LINS ("Love Is Not Sex") Does God hate sex? How far is too far? Is safe sex safe? Girl Porn/Guy Porn

Week 5 - Put a Ring on It Finding Love That Lasts for a Lifetime

Week 6 (optional) - Answering Questions (This is my lesson plan for answering the major questions we got during the series. Yours will vary, but you'll likely get some of the same questions we got. There is a major section on sexting/asking for and receiving explicit photos, etc.)

Note from the Author

You can teach this as-is with little preparation, but some groundwork ahead of time really helps. Prayerful adaptation to your group, proper promotion, and communication with parents will go a LONG way in helping this topic to succeed.

Jim Purtle is married to an incandescently radiant math teacher named Cindy. They have four small children. Those children occasionally make Jim and Cindy very proud, and sometimes make them pray fervently for the children's future sanctification. Jim has been in full-time youth ministry at the same church in rural Missouri since 2002, and feels like he might be starting to figure out how to do it. He's made a ton of mistakes, and is willing to tell anyone who will listen how not to do youth ministry! He's really glad he doesn't have Jesus' job - but he's also really glad Jesus called him to be part of His Kingdom.

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!
