Bible Study Resources

The Bible is rich in teaching, guidance, encouragement, so much more! And yet, we all know how challenging it can be to understand certain passages, or know how to apply it to our lives - especially in our teenage years. Below, we've compiled and provided some helpful resources on a document to assist in our teens learning how to read the Bible. Because Scripture is such an important way that we connect with God and know truth, it's worth tapping into our wealth of tools to be able to understand everything it has for us!

Good Christian Music

Let’s not fool ourselves – what we fill our mind with changes who we are; it determines what we desire and what we believe is right and wrong. However, we don't always know that many Christian artists with music we - or our teens - like! So here's our list of clean, God-honoring music artists. From rock and rap to folk, there is something every teen and adult can enjoy. Peake Youth's Christian Artists of Choice.
