This 3-week series looks at the spiritual disciplines that Jesus used during His ministry to stay at peace amidst the "hustle" of life.


Doug's note: Sabrina constantly writes GREAT messages--thoughtful and easy to adapt as your own. As a bonus, she's provided a "take-home" devotional for students... and I'm always looking for things I can send home with our teenagers. Trust me... try her stuff--she has a lot of great content on our website!

In a culture of packed schedules, honors classes, travel teams, anxiety, and screen addiction, students need help for the hustle! This 3-week series examines Jesus’ life and ministry and how he remained at peace amidst a busy schedule and a high-stakes mission. How did He do it? Spiritual disciplines. 

Introduce or reintroduce your students to the “unforced rhythms” of Jesus: a life marked by silence and solitude, meditating on Scripture, and fasting. We prioritize these practices not for religious badges, but for inward spiritual transformation. Jesus Himself is the answer to the hustle.

Week 1: Silence & Solitude 
Week 2: Meditating on Scripture
Week 3: Fasting

About this Product
Although it's not written specifically this way, this series would be a great way to start the New Year!

Sabrina Hadro

As the super part time youth director at my church in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, I get to bring together the call and gifts the Holy Spirit has given me, alongside of 14 years of youth ministry experience in various church sizes and denominations, to lead a team to share the Gospel with teenagers. My first job is wife and mother to 3 littles under 5 years old (pray for me) and I squeeze in gardening, sharing with DYM, sports, and guitar during nap times!
