Resources for Teen Girl Bible Studies on Dating and Marriage

Resources for Teen Girl Bible Studies on Dating and Marriage - Parenting Like HannahThis summer I participated in a Bible study with teen girls. We met once a week in a local charity coffee shop for about eight weeks. I allotted an hour and a half for each study, but many nights we were there much longer than that.

Each night I tried to focus on one or more Bible stories that illustrated the topic for the night. For example when we discussed how to spot a “frog”, we read the story of Abigail and her “frog” husband, Nabal. One week we discussed who would be a “prince” and discussed Boaz and Joseph (Jesus’ Joseph).

The rest of the time we spent relating personal experiences and studying material from various books and web articles. The main book the girls studied for most of the summer was the Dana Gresh book, Get Lost: Your Guide to Finding True Love. There is probably enough material in the book to use only that one source, but I wanted to cover other topics so I pulled in other volumes as well.

Whether you want to study with your own daughter or are leading a class or small group on dating and marriage, you may find these other resources helpful, too. This list is by no means exhaustive, but are some of my personal favorites on the topics.

I am sure there are dozens of other great books out there, but these are authors and books I knew had some important things to say to teen girls about love and marriage from a godly perspective. If you know of other great books on the subject, I would love to hear about them in a comment below.

These are affiliate links to Amazon.com. Should you decide to purchase one of the books this blog will receive a small financial reimbursement for advertising the book. It does not change your price and I would not suggest any book I did not think would be helpful. There is one very well known marriage book I left off the list for example, because I personally feel the author goes overboard with its premise.

Fix these words of mine in your hearts and minds; tie them as symbols on your hands and bind them on your foreheads. Teach them to your children, talking about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. (Deuteronomy 11:18-19 NIV)
