YOU ARE MINE
The You Are Mine curriculum utilizes Max Lucado’s book of the same title. This third guide emphasizes the fact that EVERYONE is important not because of what they own, but because of who(se) they are. The playing with grammar is intentional because as Christians, we recognize that ultimately our worth derives from belonging to God and having our purpose in Him. Everyone longs to feel that they are significant, prized, and indispensable.The YAM curriculum plows deep in order to seed the biblical foundation of identity and self worth.
The lessons are designed for 14-16 year olds and wrestle with age-appropriate issues of competition, jealousy, and greed while examining the cost to well-being when measuring importance with the wrong metric. Students will learn to define their core values, and explore the nature of true generosity and proper stewardship of their time, talents and resources—including global resources. You Are Mine is biblically based and culturally relevant for this generation of Chinese. Through the YAM program we hope to intercede for many before they are captured by the deceits of the material age.

YAM Master Curriculum Guide is based on Max Lucado’s book of the same title and addresses the issues of materialism and proper stewardship. It targets children ages 14-16 years old with 5-1½ hour lessons and an additional a 1½ hour of extended learning specifically onthe topic of stewardship. A companion CD with the necessary handout masters and additional activities is included. The lessons are appropriate for church or non-church venues.
A simple companion document that provides a one-page biblically based lesson summary for each YAM lesson along with relevant Scriptures. It can be used in a church camp or children’s church setting to supplement the YAM Master Curriculum.
The YAM Bible Study is an age-appropriate bible study directly correlated to the YAM Master Curriculum walking students through a biblical approach to the ageless struggle for a godly identity in the face of worldly temptations. Ideally, the bible study and the Master Curriculum will be used, however, the bible portion can be implemented as a stand-alone as along as the teacher has the Master Curriculum for reference.
