Just as objects sparkle not on their own, but because it reflects the light that shines upon it, it's not individual who shine. Rather, that sparkle is Christ shining through the individual.

Shine is a six-week Bible study for teenage girls, who are faced with more mixed messages - in social media, in conversations, in school situations - that ever before. By looking at different uses of light, shining, and sparking in the Bible, readers will learn the lesson of how God has given them His light, with practical ways they can shine God's love to a world that needs it.

Included in each week's study are journal topics and discussion questions for personal or small-group use.
