Dear parents,

This week we will be wrapping up our series on the habits of Jesus. It has been an incredible time diving into the life of Jesus and discovering how his regular habits connect to our own lives. But instead of just looking at the habits themselves, we’ll explore why Jesus practiced each habit.

In this final lesson, we will look at Luke 5:16, where “Jesus often withdrew to the wilderness for prayer.” It was a powerful lesson seeing how Jesus needed to get away from people and the demands of life—just like we need to do. Jesus withdrew because he was tired, he needed a break, and he needed to refocus.

This week, I encourage you to withdraw with your teenager and talk. This could be withdrawing to the Gathering Place, a park, or where you and your teen likes to hangout—or withdrawing to the coffee shop. Consider building your conversation around these questions:

  • When do you like to get away?

  • What do you do when you take a break from people?

  • Even if it isn’t me, do you have someone with whom you can share about these times away?

Thanks for supporting your teenager and this ministry. Have a blessed week!
