Way to Live

This website is a companion to the book Way to Live. Both the book and the website challenge teens to explore 18 practices that shape their lives with God and others. On waytolive.org teen-aged characters speak in ways other teens recognize. Real-life issues emerge. Hard questions get asked. Teens who meet these characters and learn about their life issues will be inspired to think about their own lives as well.

The scenes in waytolive.org are take-off points for challenging conversations. The actors are members of a public high school drama club, and some of their own life stories shape the characters they portray.

We encourage adults to talk with teens about this way to live and to accompany them in taking the challenge of Christian living. The free downloadable Way to Live Leader's Guide features discussion questions, activities, prayers, songs, and other resources for exploring each practice.

The book Way to Live (2002), edited by Dorothy C. Bass and Don C. Richter, was written by 18 adults and 18 teen authors from around the United States. Every chapter in this book uses down-to-earth words and images to explore the Christian faith. Chapter titles include: Life, The Story, Bodies, Stuff, Food, Creation, Creativity, Work, Play, Time, Truth, Choices, Friends, Welcome, Forgiveness, Justice, Grieving, Music, Prayer, and Practice.
