Young Adult Ministry FAQs

In what order should I experience the Young Adult Bible studies?
The order is: Beloved, Unshaken, Steadfast, Harmony, Perspective, Exhale
Who is the Young Adult program written for?
At Walking with Purpose, we care about women at every stage of their development and believe the best way to keep women engaged with the Catholic faith is to never lose them in the first place. To that end, we have created the Opening Your Heart young adult series, developed specifically for young women (ages 18-30) in high school, college, or just venturing out into the world. This version of our best-selling study effectively meets young women where they are and points them to a life of freedom in Christ.
Has the WWP Young Adult Bible Studies received the Imprimatur and why does this matter?
The Young Adult Bible Series was granted the Imprimatur through Archbishop William Lori of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, Maryland. This means that you can trust what's in the pages- it's been vetted to make sure it's consistent with Catholic teaching.
How is the Young Adult Bible Study meant to be used?
The Bible study can be used on your own, giving you great material for daily Scripture meditation and prayer. It also lends itself well to group discussion in the form of an independent group. We encourage you to gather your tribe - a handful of friends who want more out of their spiritual lives. Homeschool groups, church youth groups, as well as high school and college settings would be another great way to experience our YA studies.
Do I need to purchase all three books?
Our Opening Your Heart YA Study is broken into a three-part series, each of which can stand alone, or all three can be completed one after the other. Each Opening Your Heart YA study is 6 weeks long.
If I choose to gather my tribe, what is the best number for a small group?
The ideal number for small group discussion is 8-12 women.
Who runs the Young Adult study?
There are options when it comes to running your Young Adult study. For the most part, the YA study is peer run. If the study is offered in a youth group setting or college campus, there can be an appointed adult to oversee the program.
Does WWP offer any tools or leadership guides to the young woman who is willing to step up and lead, but has no leadership experience?
Yes! The WWP website offers tips and tools for leading a Young Adult program. Stay tuned for Leadership training!
How is the WWP Young Adult program different from other Catholic Bible studies?
WWP aims to bring young women to a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ by offering personal studies and small group discussions that link our everyday challenges and struggles with the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Roman Catholic Church. We are not only about head knowledge, but about heart transformation; taking what we have learned and applying it to our daily lives. WWP studies do not teach women to Christ...they love them to Christ.
What Bible should I use with my Young Adult Study?
Walking With Purpose recommends the New American Bible.
My young adult daughter has stopped attending Mass and has no interest in her faith. Would it be silly to gift her with this series?
Our young adult daughters are growing up in a very confusing world and society. Forgetting their true identity as daughters of Christ, they are hustling and white knuckling their way through life, trying to find purpose in what does not last. We need to point our precious daughters in a better direction - the only direction - that leads to a life of true love and freedom. Gift your daughter with our Young Adult series, and pray that God gives her the nudge to open the pages, where she will discover the truth; that God's love for her is so relentless, and that she has been called to a life of purpose. You can give her no greater gift.

BLAZE Middle School Ministry FAQs

What is BLAZE?
BLAZE is the WWP ministry that offers resources to help reach the hearts of girls with the love of Christ and the truths of our Catholic faith.
What is BLAZE Core?
WWP offers two BLAZE Core 20-Lesson programs: BLAZE Masterpiece and BLAZE Belong. Both BLAZE Core programs include a Leader's Guide and BLAZE Kits. Although Masterpiece came first and is sometimes referred to as "Year One," there is no order to the two BLAZE Core programs, and you can begin with either.
What is in the BLAZE Kit?
The BLAZE Masterpiece Single Kit and the BLAZE Belong Single Kit include everything needed for one girl to participate in the BLAZE Masterpiece or Belong Core program. The kits are full of learning materials and fun take-home gifts! A full list of the Masterpiece Kit contents is here, and a list of the Belong Kit contents can be found here.
Has BLAZE received an Imprimatur?
The BLAZE Masterpiece Leader's Guide and the BLAZE Belong Leader's Guide were granted the Imprimatur through Archbishop William Lori of the Archdiocese of Baltimore, Maryland.
How many girls can participate in the BLAZE Core program?
The BLAZE Kit and Leaders Guide can be used with any number of girls. It can be used with a single girl or 50 (or more)! Of course, as your BLAZE program grows, you may want to consider adding adult leaders.
How many BLAZE Kits do I need?
While only one BLAZE Leader's Guide is needed, each girl who participates will need her own BLAZE Kit. So, if you are working with a single girl, you would need 1 Leaders Guide + 1 BLAZE Kit. If you are working with a group of 5 girls, you would need 1 Leader's Guide and 5 BLAZE Kits.
What exactly does BLAZE Core teach girls?
• That they are unconditionally loved by their heavenly Father
• How to differentiate between truth and lies
• How to base their worth on being children of God
• How to pray in their own words
• How to use the Bible as a tool for spiritual growth
• That the relationships fostered in the program provide an alternative to the unhealthy way our culture encourages teens to cope with challenges of their stage of life.
Who should lead a BLAZE Core program?
BLAZE Core can be led by any adult who wishes to mentor a 7th or 8th grade girl. It could be a teacher, a student counselor, a parent, relative, young adult, etc.
If using BLAZE Core in a school setting, how many leaders should be in each classroom?
We recommend a maximum ratio of 1 leader for 25 girls. If you have a group that is larger than that, we recommend enlisting another adult to help.
How can/should a parent help?
There are many ways a parent can help with a BLAZE Core group program. He or she can liaison with school or church staff to introduce the program, lead the group each week, or help with set-up and clean-up.
Should 7th and 8th grade girls be in the same BLAZE Core group?
The BLAZE Masterpiece Core program and the BLAZE Belong Core program have been developed in such a way that they apply equally to both grades. There is no need to separate the girls by grade, although you are welcome to do so if that is your preference.
Is it important for the BLAZE meeting NOT to feel like school/religious education?
Absolutely…the environment matters. You want the girls to feel comfortable and free to express themselves, and to look forward to coming each week! Consider dimming the lights, providing blankets, using battery-operated candles, etc. The setting should be warm and inviting.
What other BLAZE products are there?
Our other BLAZE offerings may be used in addition to or separately from the BLAZE Core program. These other materials fall under the “Blaze More” umbrella and include:

Between You and Me is a 40-day conversation guide for mothers (or grandmothers, aunts, godmothers, etc.) and daughters (granddaughters, nieces, goddaughters) to read together. Each day compares a lie of our secular culture with the truth found in Scripture. The daily reflection, journaling opportunities, discussion questions, and prayer prompts will help take your relationship to a new level of honesty and intimacy.

Discovering My Purpose is a six-session Bible study designed for girls and can be used individually or in a group setting. This Bible study opens girls' eyes to their unique purpose, gifts, and God's love. It includes the BLAZE Spiritual Gifts Inventory, a fabulous tool to help girls discern where God is calling them to be world-changers.
What materials can I share with my pastor/principal?
Here is a sample introductory letter and a BLAZE overview presentation for you to download and use. A description of all the BLAZE offerings, our BLAZE program objectives, and testimonials will provide detailed information to support your conversation with your pastor or principal.
Is there a corresponding program for boys?
Our mission at Walking with Purpose is help every American Catholic woman and girl to open her heart to Jesus Christ, and we believe that right now, God is calling us to keep our focus on that mission.

There are a variety of co-ed youth Bible studies which could be adapted for use with boys, and below are two that have been recommended to us:
  • Encounter: Experiencing God in the Everyday by Mark Hart
  • Fraternus: Mentoring boys into virtuous Catholic men
