These are deep waters and waters that we must have the true compass or else they will cause such pain in our lives. As a youth leader or parent, it is our desire and commitment to help our students and kids navigate these waters with God as their guide.

The Song of Solomon for Students series does just that. Tommy Nelson, the expert on Song of Solomon and gifted teacher, teaches the first 4 chapters of this wonderful book. This series will accomplish the following for your students or kids: • Give biblical guidance on dates, dating & what is “courting” • Focus for teenagers & youth adults should be on becoming the right type of person rather than finding the right person • Romance, Marriage & Sexuality are a gift from God, not the worlds • But, God has a very distinct design & boundaries for these gifts
