My Body… God’s Temple
MY BODY…GOD’S TEMPLE
Dear Parent or Facilitator,
The questions in this booklet are designed to explore what children are thinking regarding their own bodies and the circumstances in which they have been involved. As lies are exposed, we as disciplers and counselors are able to exchange these lies with Biblical truth. Through the questions that are explored and answered with specific scriptures, children will be led by their own participation into the revelation of God’s true design for their own bodies.
We pray that The Truth will set the children free from the guilt and shame of any sin in which they have been involved. We can then lead children into cleansing and healing, as they take the necessary steps of disclosure, confession, repentance, and forgiveness.
With this booklet, may children understand their own rights and responsibilities regarding their own bodies according to God’s Word. May they also confidently set proper boundaries for the future, based on God’s perfect design.
To His Praise and Honor,
Carol Perkins and Mindy Peterson
