Instructor: Debbie Gaudino

Course description: High school aged teens are faced with the challenge of learning to make good decisions. Developing the tools needed to make independent, Godly decisions is one of the most important skills a teenager can learn, and one that will serve him or her throughout their lifetime. Using Fr. Michael Scanlan’s book “What Does God Want?” as our core text, this course will also draw from the lives and wisdom of the Catholic saints to provide solid principles for making good and Godly decisions. We will examine how to determine if a decision conforms to God’s will, the role of prayer and counsel in decision making, and the reliance on the gifts of the Holy Spirit, when making difficult decisions. For every principle learned we will review different scenarios and apply those principles.

Course outline:

Day One: Determining if a decision conforms to God’s will and if it will lead us to greater holiness and deeper conversion.

Day Two: Determining if a decision is consistent with our other responsibilities and if others confirm it.

Day Three: The role of our own heart in decision making.

Day Four: Handling Challenges in Decision Making

Day Five: The Courage to Make Difficult Decisions

Day Six: Vocations and Life-Long Decisions

Course materials: What Does God Want? A Practical Guide to Making Decisions by Fr. Michael Scanlan IBSN: 978-1622826544 (
https://amzn.to/2YpLFBw). Other readings provided FREE by the instructor.

Homework: Approximately 20 pages of reading per night from Fr, Scanlan’s book with a short quiz after Days 1-5 based on the reading material. A one-page reflection paper will be due before the last class.
