Sometimes in our walk with Jesus, we can feel like we need to have everything together before we can approach Him. In this series, we’ll be taking a look at some parables Jesus told us as a way to know Him better. 



When your day starts off on the right foot, it makes all the difference! Go the extra mile this week and make your teens favorite breakfast, buy your teen a breakfast from their favorite fast-food restaurant, or text your them a $5 gift card to Starbucks.


Invite a family over for dinner! Talk with your teen to discuss who you should invite, and be sure to invite the whole family. Encourage your teen to invite a newer friend or a family you don’t know very well. 


The next time your teen asks a question about your past, consider sharing part of your story with them. The more we understand each other’s stories, the more understanding we have for each other. Use discretion while sharing, but sometimes sharing your low points or failures can remind your teens that they’re not alone.


Before your teen heads to bed, ask your teen how you can pray for them. Maybe they have a big game coming up, a subject in school they’re struggling through, or even a relationship with a friend that could be better. If they don’t have anything to share, tell your teen specific ways you are praying for them. If you’re comfortable, ask your teen if you can pray for them now. If they say no, don’t force the issue, just be sure to pray for them after they leave.
