About This Course

Published 10/2015 English

Course Description

This course is designed for women's ministry leaders, youth leaders, and caring adults who want to help our young women learn about and reclaim their identities in Christ.

Many of the issues we currently identify as stemming from "low self-esteem" will only be remedied when our young ladies realize who they already are in Christ. It's one thing to tell a girl to ignore negative messaging about her worth, but it's quite another to help her claim positive messages from God for herself.

This course will empower anyone who works with young ladies to lead them to see the truth about who they are in Christ.

This course is taught by video, with the guides, exercises and Leader's notes in pdf format so you can make copies for your group discussions. It should take you about two hours to watch and complete the materials for yourself before you teach, but it has ample enough materials and discussion topics to lead a course that would last an around 4 hours.

The curriculum includes:

  • 4 signs to tell if your girl is struggling with identity issues and simple ways you can address them now
  • Bible discovery guides that demonstrate the characteristics of Christ that make Him attractive as a personal friend, and the subsequent influence of God as creator and a personal friend to give true identity markers
  • A guide to critical thinking about media messaging and how it shapes identity
  • Practical media deconstruction exercise you can do right now to help your girl reclaim her identity from false messaging
  • Testimony from a Christian counselor on how false identity causes pain for young people
  • Testimony from a recovering eating disorder sufferer on how identity in Christ saved her
  • Additional resources

Instructor Biography

Amie Regester, President, Greater Than Rubies

Amie spent her public high school years defending her faith and her vegetarianism in rural Arkansas--where if you don't eat a whole cow for breakfast, you're weird. After getting a degree in Corporate Communication she proceeded to get jobs in everything but communications: including but not limited to sales, crisis hotlines, fitness and economic development. Looking back, she realized that her favorite jobs (Union College Resident Assistant, Assistant Girl's Dean, and Youth Leadership Coordinator) have all had to do with helping young women figure out life's tough stuff.

Amie now works to create experiences and resources to empower her sisters-in-Christ to lead their most successful lives possible. She works on her website and ministry project Greater Than Rubies, from her church office in Arroyo Grande, CA. She loves Jesus, books about theology, painting stuff, eating stuff and being warm. She loves her family!
