Doug Fields says, “I absolutely LOVE this type of resource. So helpful! Saves me TONS of time and is thought-through by a veteran youth worker. It's very well-written and well-structured and has solid content. There’s so much included in this resource”

Life is messy. It’s full of heartbreak, disaster, lies, and deceit. We live in a broken world, with broken people and sinful hearts. Are students equipped to navigate rough waters when storms hit their shores? And how are students steering hard times—with drugs, academics, video games?

As teachers of God’s Word, it’s our job to assist students with helpful tools to appropriately “Navigate Life’s Messiness” when it hits them from nowhere.

This three-day curriculum is set up to point students back to Scripture, community, prayer, and spiritual direction. This will happen through an in-depth study on Joseph’s life, as recorded in Genesis 37-50.

You can use this three-day curriculum in whatever way works best for your context. Take students away for the weekend, create a retreat around it, use it one day a week for three weeks, or give to students to do on their own with a few friends or their small group.

This Resource Includes:
• 3 Student Devotionals
• 3 Small Group Guides for Leaders
• 3 Student Prayer Guides
• One-on-One Leader Letter
• Three-Day Sample Schedule
• Note from the Author
