The development of Biblical understanding in teens varies greatly during the teen years. Come, study and learn! The lessoins in the Teen Caverns at Cherbearsden.com are here for teens, preteens, and new Christians in your youth groups and Sunday School classes. Also visit studies I have put together for more mature teens who wish to study the "meat" of the Word of God. The focus is on Jesus as Lord and Savior and Cherbear's studies include Old and New Testament teachings from the Holy Bible as the "Inherent" Word of God!

Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature
and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:4

These are the Teen Caverns at Cherbear's Den.

It is important to grow in your walk with Him daily. I am thankful you have come here to study His Word! I am growing just as you are! Jesus, in Matthew 7:6-8, says, "Ask and it will be given to you; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened." NIV – I'm asking, I'm seeking, and I am most certainly knocking at the door. Come take this wonderful adventure with me. Bookmark this page for I am expecting great things this year!

In the Teen Trails of Truth you will study the Ten Commandments, The Beatitudes, The Fruits of the Spirit, the Full Armor of God and much more! The "Names of God," bible study and the "Gospel Writers," bible study series is here for teens who know how important that path is already, with a desire to hear more about the "Who, What, When and Where" of God's Word. I do hope I can be given biblical insights to bring more of this type of study in the future. I am the curious type. I strive to live by faith, however I do have a deep desire for the "meat" of God's Word and wish it to fill my spirit with the knowledge and the "peace that passes all understanding" continuously.

You need the Holy Spirit to guide you through God's Word!

Names of God! - Bible Study into the Names of God used by the Israelites in the Old Testament.

"The Names of God" study is to teach you about the many names for God in the Bible. The Israelites had a special way of speaking about God, each one reverent and so important to learn, as the let us experience the character of God. Jesus is named throughout the Old Testament as well as the New Testament, in many terms and knowing about them turns the light bulb on of just HOW BIG our God truly is! So exciting!

Part 1 Extensive study for older teens into the Old Testament Names for God!

Part 2 Qualities of our God by the descriptions of how people in the Bible experienced Him

Part 3 What is in the Name of Jesus! What did God say is in this Name. Jesus?

The Gospel Writers - Teen Bible Study of the Four Gospels and the men who wrote them.

These are studies for teens and adults, hungry to learn the ways of God! In the "Gospel Writers" study series, I take you through all four of the Gospels teaching why God chose whom He chose to write them and just who it was in real time that He was talking to. How do they relate to us? In HIS "Good News Plan" or the plan of redemption for you and me and all men, He wants that none would perish but all would have everlasting life with Him in heaven. We are all different and His approach to us from every direction is meant to show us the way to HIM! I pray you will take this study to heart and realize that God knows our differences and made a perfect plan for us to be Reconciled to Him!

The Gospel Writers We will examine the Gospel Writers and their intended audience and so much more!

Matthew, Jesus as Messiah - King of kings and Lord of lords.

Mark, Jesus as Servant - The Servant King

Luke, Jesus as Healing Savior - The Great Physician

Encompass Me Links Cavern A play on words and my attempt to surround you with interesting and beneficial links for your spiritual life. Not so new to the Teen Cave are my Christian links for teens...before my long absence from the internet and this ministry due to health and family struggles, I met the most amazing Christian Internet community. I have included some of these wonderful, loving and informative Christian sites for teens in this list . God created the internet for Himself and his children need to be in this creation of His to instruct and lead others in His ways!

Enigma Cavern "Enigma" The dictionary says that an enigma is a riddle or a perplexing or baffling matter. From time to time, I would like to add to this. If you have something of interest that baffles the mind, Please contact Gramma Cherbear and I'll see if I can include your idea!

Influential Cavern This is where I will list the credits and resource information on materials that have influenced me as I present a lesson. It is helpful for you to know where I am coming from in these studies. I encourage you to check out other resources for yourself too!

What Did Jesus Do? What is Salvation? for adults and older teens. What Does It Mean To Be a Christian? Why Am I Here? What's The Problem? What's The Solution?

Receive His wonderful gift of a "forever life" with Him, and a more powerful and full filling daily walk "In Christ."

What is Salvation? for children, preteens and early teens. This story was written by, Larry and Elaine Clark. Elaine saw an article about a book I was fortunate to illustrate, "God Gave Us Colors, Colors for Africa" and tracked me down. We met at a Barns and Noble in Wichita and I was so impressed with her presentation of the Salvation message for children; I published it here on my site for children as a way of leading them into their personal relationship with Jesus. Come and see what God has done for us. What Does God Want Me to Do?

Gospel for Preteens! and Gospel for Teens I have added these special pages which list the many pages in Cherbear's Den where the Gospel of Jesus Christ and His free gift of salvation are presented to teens and preteens. There are many ways to tell the "Good News" or the Gospel of Jesus Christ and God's saving grace; He wants us to know Him in a very personal way. We can help others to know Him too! Say a prayer and enter into a relationship with Jesus that will bring you into a new life in Him!

If I Could Speak! Joshua's Story by Gramma Cherbear. Joshua is my special needs grandson and such a delight and a blessing to all who know him. This was fun to write and I appreciate this honor from "Nifty Nibbles!" This story was featured in the May/June 2000 Nifty Nibbles Children's Literary Magazine.

Joshua God's Design Don't miss this poem for Joshua, inspired by the Holy Spirit. At its completion, it became very real to me that the lives of these children imitate the way our Lord is treated by some. Rejected, even to this day, by many who have no knowledge of His worth! Our loving God, never says "OOPS!" He has a purpose for every person He creates. The innocence of mentally and physically challenged children and adults only adds to their worth as God uses them to teach compassion and change attitudes to of those whom have not realized the value of their existence.

Gospel for Kids & Gospel for Preteens For children, teens and preteens who work with Kids! Each time I think of a new way to present Jesus to the children, I will try to share it with you. I hope you will visit this page and labor of love. You will find other lessons and books in the Kid Cave.
