Fellow Teachers,

Attached is the first lesson plan of our new study, “You’ll Get Through This” by Max Lucado.  The following is from the back cover of the book from which this study is excerpted:  “You fear you won’t make it through.  You fear that the depression will never lift, the yelling will never stop, the pain will never leave.  Will this gray sky ever brighten?  This load ever lighten?

“Yes!  Deliverance in the Bible is bold, brassy, and everywhere.  Consider the Old Testament story of Joseph—tossed in a pit by his brothers, sold into slavery, wrongfully imprisoned.  But God wove what was meant for evil into good.

“God is in the business of redeeming the broken.  He was then.  He is still.  Do you crave some hope for these tough times?  Then this is the message you need.”

Blessings as you prepare,

Debbie Manthe
