Teens with Purpose

We all need to feel like our life has purpose. But it’s even more critical for teens.

When teenagers understand that their gifts and talents were given to them for a specific purpose, they’re far more likely to seek out and fulfil that purpose.

Ask your teen, “What do you love to do? Then spend time discussing their talents and interests. Talk to them about how they can use their gifts to serve others. And what career fields these gifts might lead them into.

You might also ask them to think about developing a mission statement for their life. You may be surprised by their answer.
