Grow Like Jesus is a summer growth plan that gives children a clear path for improvement in every area of their lives.
This is a self-guided, choose-your-own-adventure type of program. First, a child receives a printed Summer Growth Plan workbook. Then they look at the eight different challenges and choose one or two that call their name. See a free sample of the workbook here.
The idea is not to complete all eight challenges (even though it’s a realistic goal). The idea is to help children take responsibility for their growth and make it fun for them.
