• An easily accessible, theologically progressive, mainline Christian Ed resource on human sexuality
• A High School program resource to engage youth in connecting faith and sexuality in grades 9-12

Our inherent value and worth comes from God's love for us, but our modern world is filled with sexual expression that too often leads us away from the life of Christ. As Christians seeking to live a life worthy of our calling and desiring to pass along these values to our children and youth, these books (Leader Guide, Parent Book, Participant) offer session plans with activities for High School students to explore issues of sexuality in the context of our faith, building on the foundational book of the same name and as part of the TAOB program resource.

This sexuality education resource from a mainline/progressive denominational prospective aids the teacher/parent/participant in learning and using skills that enable them to embrace and affirm the wholeness of sexuality and to talk openly and honestly about the connection of their sexuality and their faith. Session plans will address facts about sexuality, vocabulary, decision making, faith and daily life, respect, growth and change, behavior, responsibility, values, prayer, and intentionality in an age appropriate manner for young people 15- to 18-years-old.

Samantha Haycock is Director of Children and Youth Ministry at Christ Episcopal Church, Alameda, California, and has been involved in Diocesan sponsored youth events over the past decade from summer camps, to Happening, to Episcopal Youth Event. Haycock combines a BA in Psychology with a passion for spreading Jesus' call for social justice, and she helps people to make connections between their daily and spiritual lives so that they can bring their whole and authentic selves to the world. She also enjoys concocting strange things in her kitchen and hiking all over the place.

Caren Miles is currently adjusting to the west coast lifestyle after moving from the Church of the Heavenly Rest, Manhattan, to St. John's, Ross, California. After eleven years of ministry, Miles is still excited to sit on the floor and read Bible stories to preschoolers or to sit in a coffee shop and wax theological with teenagers—yet she admits that her favorite thing is watching those same teenagers begin to lead younger children on their faith journeys. She lives in Alameda, California.
