Young Adults

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 our young adult series, developed specifically for young women. This version of our best-selling studies, Opening Your Heart and Keeping in Balance effectively meets young women where they are and points them to a life of freedom in Christ. An additional study series (Discovering Our Dignity) will be released at a future date. The Bible study materials can be used with a small group of friends, for individual study, or in the parish setting.

You can bring our young adult Bible studies to a school, parish youth group, small group or use one-on-one with a young woman. Learn more

Young Adults FAQs

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.
