Health: Life Management Skills


Course Description:
Signposts are everywhere in life, sending us in either positive or negative directions. Students will follow the signposts in Life Management Skills, and learn to use a biblical worldview to develop the skills for healthy, effective, and godly living. God’s choice for our lives is to live according to His word and what He expects. Students learn to use important tools for communicating feelings and opinions through a biblical lens. Through the study of real life issues students will be guided into forming healthy attitudes and behaviors that promote personal development, health and well-being, in order to bring glory to God and experience His pleasure. Other tools provide a foundation for becoming a savvy consumer in a world of advertising, credit cards, and focusing on practices that will help protect the world God has created for us.

Biblical Integration Information:
Science is the orderly study of God’s creation. God’s true nature is partially revealed through the orderly, discoverable, and purposeful scientific laws He established to govern His Creation. Recognizing our limitations and sinful tendencies to worship the creation rather than the Creator, we should use science to encourage and promote life, health, community, and godliness as we seek to take our role in having dominion over the natural world. We can seek to bring glory to God by using scientific reasoning and critical thinking to understand God’s world, man’s role in it, and how to properly relate with our Creator and fellow man. As we pursue scientific truths through the lens of the Word of God, we will be led into a deeper understanding of our Creator and appreciation of His provision and wisdom.
