The Apostle Paul tells us that our identity is in Christ, and we need to dress the part. All who follow Jesus - kids included - must take off and put on certain things. What to Wear is an eight-part study of these items of "clothing" Paul teaches about in Colossians 3. How do we put on compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, patience, forbearance, forgiveness and love?

This study shows kids how Jesus perfectly embodies these virtues and how He enables us to grow in them. Apart from Jesus Christ, our attempts to form these traits will fail. Yet when tied to identity in Christ and our belonging in the church, we see the fruit of these qualities developed in our minds and hearts.

Kids are encouraged to learn algebra, science, instruments, and athletics. The goal of this study is to help our kids live into their calling to know and love Jesus by studying His Word. In this study, kids will learn the method of observation, interpretation, and application. As kids learn how to read the Bible for themselves, they'll also grow to delight in God's Word.

In What to Wear, Catherine Parks offers middle grade kids a gospel-rich study they can easily access, genuinely enjoy, and meaningfully apply. My favorite part is Catherine's approach to application. She allows Jesus' example to settle into her young readers' minds and then engages their imagination with age-appropriate scenarios that invite them to consider, "How can I 'put on' this Christlike quality?" I know this eight-week study will truly serve my young brothers and sisters in Christ, and I am eager to recommend it to the eight- to twelve-year-olds in my life!
