Kids Can Do It
Collection of 26 Christian youth devotionals which include contemporary stories, Bible verses, prayers, questions to ponder, and much more. Both realistic and inspiring.
Being a “tween” can be a very awkward time in anyone’s life. You’re not a full-fledged teenager with cars, dates, and high school, but you’re not a little child anymore, either. You can still feel the pull in both directions--wanting to be a child and have fun, yet wanting more responsibility as a teenager. It’s definitely not easy being a “tween.”
Me, Myself, and I was written for you--to help guide you through this time of transition through stories and study questions at the end of each chapter. You can read this book privately at home as a personal devotional or in a group setting such as Sunday school, youth Bible studies, or through other Christian-based youth organizations.
The wisdom offered in Me, Myself, and I can make the journey from tween to adult just a little easier with the reassurance that God is present every step of the way.
Do you sometimes wonder who you are? Who you really are?
Do you have different faces for different situations? One you for your youth group at church and a different you for the school locker room? One you for your family and another you for your friends?
You're no longer a child, but you're not yet an adult. Do you sometimes feel like you're in limbo? Neither this nor that but something in-between.
Do you sometimes feel "out-of-sync" with everyone else? Like an "outsider" who just doesn't fit in with the "cool kids?"
And what about peer pressure? Do you sometimes find yourself doing things you don't really want to do--just to "go along to get along?"
If so, you're not alone. Finding out who we really are is a journey that takes a long time, sometimes an entire lifetime.
But what's important to remember is that we are all the children of a loving God who will guide us on our faith journey and help us find our way to becoming the people He wants us to be.
And remember that we are not traveling alone!
Would Be Great Gift for Religious Tweens!
The time between young adulthood and childhood, a time where you're just stuck in the middle.

Valuable Resource for Tweens!
Does your life seem boring when compared to your friends lives? Do you wish you were an only child so you wouldn't t have to deal with your annoying sibling? Does life suddenly seem complicated with rules from teachers, parents, and friends? If you're a tween, you've probably asked yourself similar questions. Tweens find themselves in the confusing "between" age: too old for kiddie stuff and too young for teenage life. Author Sandra McLeod Humphrey guides tweens through tough situations in Me, Myself, and I. In "Dreams and Drums," Aaron tries to figure out who he is and to identify his special talent. Maybe he takes after his brother, the soccer star. After dragging behind the other players at practice, Aaron feels like a failure. The soccer coach suggests he try basketball. It may be a nice way to steer him toward another sport, but Aaron feels terrible about himself. His mom suggests he play clarinet. Even though Aaron knows he didn't inherit his family s musical talent, he tries out. He can t play a note. The teacher suggests science club, probably because his sister is a brain. Aaron doesn't t share any of his family s special talents. Is he good at anything? Who is he if he s not athletic, musical, or smart like others in his family? Author and retired clinical psychologist Sandra McLeod Humphrey is experienced working with and writing for young people. Me, Myself, and I presents tween narratives in twenty-six alphabetized chapters, such as "Attitude is Everything!," "Heroes Aren't Always Where You Think They Are," "Promises Aren't t Always Forever," and "U-Turns Allowed." Each chapter s scenario opens with helpful quotations in: "Bible Wisdom," "A Favorite Quotation," "Words to Ponder," "What I Can Think," and "What I Can Do." After reading each story, tweens will find a relevant prayer and Questions to Ponder. Me, Myself, and I provides a valuable resource for tweens wanting inspirational guidance through adolescence. --MyShelf.Com
