I’m excited to announce that Simply Youth Ministry is releasing a new student devotional book this week: 10-Minute Moments the Basics. It is a 30-day student through the book of John that is perfect for foundational spiritual growth or new believers. Here’s a little insight from the product description:

Want to help teenagers build a lasting life of faith? It all begins with a solid foundation! 10-Minute Moments: The Basics will help students in their spiritual journey, whether they’re new followers of Jesus or have been Christ-followers for years. The truths in this book aren’t called “basic” because they’re childish or simplistic; they’re “basic” because they’re foundational and essential to leading a life that honors God.

Teenagers will discover a fresh understanding about God from the Gospel of John, one of the clearest and most-read books of the Bible. They’ll explore the fundamental beliefs and teachings of Jesus, and they’ll encounter a deeper of everything God has done for us. Each day’s reading only takes about 10 minutes—a great step toward building a personal habit of daily time with God.

We wanted to give you “Insiders” a first peak at a new book by Doug Fields, 10 Minute Moments: Plugged In. It’s a companion study devotional to the Plugged In video small group curriculum. Here’s a quick description:

10-Minute Moments: Plugged In is a daily devotional that’s set up as a journal. Students read a Bible passage, poke their brain with a few questions, get some suggestions on what to pray about, and then space to write down their thoughts. It’s a one-month plan that’s easy to read and easy to stick with. And, if you hadn’t guessed from the title, each “lesson” only takes about 10 minutes.

This time around, they’ll tackle the five biblical purposes of our lives–
