Spiritual Values in the Boarding School Mysteries
Jeri grows from being occasionally disobedient (when she truly believes she has a good reason—or doesn’t understand the purpose of a rule) to being obedient to authority and trusting the wisdom and guidance in God’s Word instead of her own human understanding.
Secrets for Sale
When dealing with those who treat her badly, Jeri learns to pray for those who persecute her and to overcome evil with good. She grows from using rejection to deal with her “enemies,” to forgiving them and using their offenses as a means of expressing Christ’s love to them.
Despite putdowns from classmates, Jeri learns to “love the unlovely” and not show favoritism. Jeri grows from being indifferent and “blind” to others’ special needs, to compassion and noticing others’ needs.
Pick Your Poison
Jeri learns and grows in the area of looking to God—not others—for her acceptance. She bucks the culture to dress modestly and learns not to depend on outer looks to be liked. She grows from a dependence on the culture (both looks and grades) to dependence on God.
