Because of Grácia: A Novel

Based on the award-winning film starring Moriah Peters and Chris Massoglia, Because of Grácia follows the stories of Chase Morgan, Grácia Davis, and their fellow high school seniors as they face life-altering decisions on their journeys of faith, friendship, and love.

Chase Morgan would love to live up to his name and pursue something great. It’s his senior year and he’s still as insecure as ever, but Eastglenn High’s newest student is about to turn that around. Grácia is a girl with charisma, intelligence and conviction, but she’s not as “together” as Chase and his best friend OB might think. A dark past gives her a unique connection with Bobbi, a misunderstood classmate with a strained home life and an all-too-cute boyfriend as her means of escape.

As Bobbi struggles with a life-and-death decision and Chase risks rejection, Grácia challenges her friends, teachers and even herself to experience the transformative power of grace.

Because of Grácia: A Film and Faith Leader’s Guide

Because of Grácia: A Film and Faith Leader’s Guide equips youth pastors and small group leaders to explore the key themes in this award-winning film through a life-changing discipleship curriculum.

The nine-week guide contains three weeks of “Conversations” on three core topics from the film:

  • Practicing Friendship: Dating and God’s design for relationship
  • Choosing Life: Teen pregnancy and the sanctity of life
  • Voicing Faith: Sharing and defending our Christianity in public

The Because of Grácia Leader’s Guide is designed for use with the related Because of Grácia Film and Faith Conversation Guide for students, a unique hybrid experience that offers complementary material for small group sessions, as well as daily reflections for students to use throughout the week in “conversation partner” pairs.  The resulting 45-day experience allows young Christians to pursue discipleship with others, while helping them to wrestle with the difficult issues they’re facing today.

The Because of Grácia curriculum was created to affirm that with God’s amazing and empowering grace, young people CAN live in a new way. Take your students on a spiritual journey alongside Grácia, Chase, and the rest of Eastglenn High as they face life-altering decisions, learning that grace is both the gift of mercy when we fail and our empowerment to live in truth and light.

The Because of Grácia Film and Faith Conversation Guide is a different kind of resource from most movie discussion guides, and it’s different from most bible studies. It’s a 45-day experience to spark conversations on the challenges students face every day as Christians. Based on the themes of Because of Grácia, each week’s conversation has info on group activities and then follows up with five days of devotional reflections for a student and his or her conversation partner. Topics and conversations include:

1. Practicing Friendship

  • Why Do We Fall in Love?
  • What About Our Bodies?
  • How Do You Grow True Friendship?

2. Choosing life

  • Why Am I Here?
  • What Should I Do?
  • How Can I Help?

3. Voicing Faith

  • Why Do We Hide?
  • What Is a Witness?
  • Will Anyone Listen?

These Because of Grácia conversations will help students know how to handle the life-altering choices they face everyday– friendships and relationships, dating and falling in love, how to choose life and support those facing teen pregnancy, and how to confidently voice your faith and beliefs in public. So let this film and faith conversation be a part of their faith journey, and get real with these real-life questions on God, friendship, and love.

Because of Grácia will move young men and women in truth, challenging all in a life changing message of hope.
