This resource provides a weekly reflection piece for teens that aims specifically at helping them to integrate their faith into their lives more fully. Each weekly resource includes a scripture reflection, a challenge for action, and reflection questions. This resource speaks to the third goal of the USCCB’s “Renewing the Vision: A Framework for Catholic Youth Ministry”: “To foster the total personal growth of each young person.” Parents, Catholic high school teachers, and catechists often find that teens compartmentalize themselves, and may demonstrate faith-filled actions within the church or youth ministry setting, but behave very differently in other areas of their lives. Teens often mold their actions to obtain the approval of those around them, and may be one way at church, another way at home, and another way with their friends. This resource aims to help them to see the importance and rewards of integrating their faith into their life at home, school, church, in sports and activities, with friends, and even online.

From the time he was a young boy roaming the forests of the unsettled Midwest, Abraham Lincoln knew in his heart that slavery was deeply wrong. A voracious reader, Lincoln spent every spare moment of his days filling his mind with knowledge, from history to literature to mathematics, preparing himself to one day lead the country he loved toward greater equality and prosperity. Despite the obstacles he faced as a self-educated man from the back woods, Lincoln persevered in his political career, and his compassion and honesty gradually earned him the trust of many Americans. As president, he guided the nation through a long and bitter civil war and penned the document that would lead to the end of slavery in the United States. The passion for humanity that defined Lincoln's life shines through in this momentous follow-up to Martin's Big Words and John's Secret Dreams. Told in Doreen Rappaport's accessible, absorbing prose, and brought to life in powerful illustrations by Kadir Nelson, Abe's Honest Words is an epic portrait of a truly great American president.

Frederick s Journey The Life of Frederick Douglass

Release Date: 2015-11-03
Genre: Juvenile Nonfiction

Frederick Douglass was born a slave. He was taken from his mother as a baby, and separated from his grandparents when he was six. He suffered hunger and abuse, but miraculously, he learned how to read. Frederick read newspapers left in the street, and secretly collected spellings from neighborhood children. Words, he knew, would set him free. When Frederick was twenty, he escaped to the North, where he spread his abolitionist beliefs through newspaper articles, autobiographies, and speeches. He believed that all people-regardless of color or gender-were entitled to equal rights. It is Douglass's words, as well as his life, that still provide hope and inspiration across generations. In this installment of the critically acclaimed Big Words series, Doreen Rappaport captures Frederick's journey from boy to man, from slavery to freedom, by weaving Frederick's powerful words with her own. London Ladd's strong and evocative illustrations combine with the text to create a moving portrait of an extraordinary life.
