Theyre no longer the new kid on campus. But they also dont run the show. Thats the dilemma of the sophomore year of high school. Some teenagers view this as their year to waste, but its really a chance to be different, to find ways to step into maturity, to look for opportunities to help others, and to prepare for their elevation into the upper classes next year. Lars Rood is your students guide for this journey. Hes a pastor and a former teacher, so hes talked with lots of sophomores whove wrestled with this unique season of the high school experience: What role do friends play in my life? How do I make decisions? Which people are in my crowd? Who are my role models? What life-shaping habits am I building? Each entry in this devotional will help teenagers walk through an important moment, issue, challenge, or opportunity that defines the sophomore year. Lars will also offer ideas on living out what teenagers believe. In other words, this isnt just a book students readits a book that leads to action.
