Rejoicing in God's Good Design

A Study for Youth on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood

Lessons: 28
Target Grade: 9th Grade
Grade Range: 7th Grade - 12th Grade


The goal of this study is to help students to understand and rejoice in God’s good design in creating men and women fully equal in His image, yet with different roles. By showing students that male-female differences are rooted in God’s created design, students are led to acknowledge that the only way we can understand who we are as men and women is to come to terms with the Creator and what He tells us about ourselves in Scripture.

Students will be encouraged to value the members of the opposite gender, as they learn how God has uniquely designed and gifted each gender to fulfill distinct callings. It is our prayer that God uses this material to give the next generation a vision for becoming mature Christian men and women as they navigate their way through life amid the gender confusion and distorted messages they are receiving from the world.

Lesson presentations incorporate PowerPoint® and student journals to help teachers present the lessons and engage youth in class discussion.
