I want to encourage you to ask your preteen/ teen (it can be while riding in the car, kicking the soccer ball, eating dinner – normal everyday activities) Do you know what holy means?
It means different, set apart. As children of God, this is what/ WHO we are. WE/YOU ARE HOLY!
Maybe share a time with your preteens/teens when you had to make a tough choice that showed you were set apart. Remind and encourage your child to live like who they are as God’s child! Holy and don’t forget never alone! Even when making hard choices and you feel like no one is on your side! God is and, as their parent, you are!
