Reviews - What do customers think about Faith Difference, The?

Finally, a true blessing for PSR teachers  May 20, 2005
I teach 7th grade PSR, and I have searched for some time for a resource like this. While it is written as a teen-aged retreat resource, it is EXCELLENT for PSR for middle school or high school. It answered all my wishes. The activities capture the students' interest and imaginations. There is allowance for physical activity, for those children who just can't sit still. It is NOT simply coloring pages or word puzzles, which so many middle-school books incorporate, but which as most of us know, are just too "young" for this age group and are only useable as filler, if that. While not all activities are doable in the typical short time for the average PSR/CCD class, or geared for tweens per se, they are HIGHLY adaptable - there was something I could take from almost every offering. Many of the activities are just lovely; they just wonderfully incorporate both fun and seriousness. One of my favorites is the "Letters to/from God." There are also innovative and creative takes on those tried and true versions of popular game shows such as Wheel of Fortune. There are just beautiful - and from my class reactions,deeply affecting - lessons on prayer. What joy to be able to break through to this age group on prayer! There are hysterical ice breakers. There are lessons to include parents! Honestly, I read through this book with audible expressions of delight. I highly and without reservation recommend this to anyone teaching high school, but especially those teaching the challenging middle school age group. Sr. Sawyer has done a wonderful service to us all.
