If you listened to the news at any given point today, you may have heard the story about the shooting in a Ohio school. Many accusations were made but who really know what happened. I believe this is a universal issue that can affect any of our schools. Things were said such as, he was being picked on and bullied. Let’s not wait until it get this far. Do you have a trusted source that you can confide in if bullying was to happen to you?
I wonder why bullying is so common these days, is it really more common now or do people react to it differently? Violence and anger seem to be the more common reaction. Are people being taught to turn the other cheek and talk out their differences?
I believe this website is a good way to reach out to our teen girls and I think all the girls should see this. It really is awesome just like its name.
Thanks let’s spread the word and help one another.
Hello teens ! 🙂
The reason I believe In the resurrection , is because as Christians we have to have Faith(complete confidence & belief in something/someone). Basically I have faith that he resurrected. As a child growing up, i learned abt him resurrecting in sunday school/church. I remeber learning that when Jesus died nd was buried, guards noticed his tomb was empty,which means Jesus rose from the dead. Not only having faith , & hearing it from others, it’s also found in the Bible, in the books of Matthew,John,& Mark.
I believe that God resurrected because ive learned throughout the years that God blessed me to walk this big beautiful green earth…and because of his kindness and mercy towards me….I must say I really and truly believe that he resurrected just to fulfil what was spoken by the profit of God….that he was the true King…and God Bless…
The title of today’s lesson is Cleansing the Temple. It is found in John 2:13-22. I learned today, that we should not come to church bringing along foolishness. In the lesson the people were making a mockery out of the temple and Jesus was angry.
Today’s lesson: “Cleansing the Temple”, actually meant a lot to me. In the scriptures John 2:13-22, it talks about the Passover. From those sriptures I learn that we don’t come to church to meet people, talk our girlfriends or boyfriends. We go there to worship and thank God for all that he has done for us. We need to keep His house Holy nd Sacred.
Awww! It’s graduation time. Parties, gifts, and more parties. But what does it all really mean? For starters, it’s a time to celebrate your accomplishments from 1st-12th grades. Congratulations, it all paid off. The exams, essays you had to write (even those you didn’t write lol). And now, it’s time to move on. It can be an exciting, yet scary time for some. Though some have their plans all figured out, there are some who are still indecisive. It’s a time when you will feel you’re on top of the world some days, and other days you will want to hide from the world. But do yourself a favor-never give up! I wish you much success. Dare not to give up!!

One thing we should always remember and keep in mind is that God loves us. No matter our shortfalls, no matter our stumbles and no matter how many times we fail to meet God’s standards, His Love for us will never diminish. The Lord wishes for us to come out of our sin filled past and rest in His forgiveness. We can all be forgiven of our past. There isn’t a person alive that is beyond redemption. The Bible declares in Psalm 103:10-13 “He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us. Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear Him.” If you are far away from the Lord and wish to be reconciled with Him then today is the best day to begin your journey with the Lord.
The goodness of God is something that we could never fully comprehend because in life equal exchanges are the accepted norm. For example, if you’d like to buy food, you will have to exchange money with a vendor equivalent to the amount of food that you would like. If you’d like to buy a car, you will have to exchange money equivalent to the car that you’d like to have. An exchange has to be made to receive goods and services in this world. That is not how God works with us. The exchanges that we receive with God are much more beneficial to us than they are to Him. For our sins and iniquities, He gives us forgiveness and a clean slate. For our darkness and impurities, He gives us His light and life. For the hell we all rightly deserve, He offers us redemption, salvation and a home with Him in Heaven. The exchanges we receive with God are not fair to Him, but still are made available because His Love is so great for us.
The Bible declares in Romans 5:8-9 “…God commendeth His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him.” Every sinner deserves righteous judgment for their sins, but because of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, God sees us justified through His blood that was shed for all mankind. The blood of Christ cleanses us of our unrighteousness and because of the Lord Jesus’s sacrifice, we can now be reconciled back to God. The Lord sees us as sons and daughters not because of what we have done, but because of what the Lord Jesus Christ has done for us.
See that it is to your every benefit to call upon the Lord and make Him your God and Savior. The exchanges that we receive from God aren’t fair to Him, but thankfully still exist to all who call upon His Name in truth, in humility and in wholeheartedness. Be encouraged to call upon the Lord and know that He loves you with an everlasting love that never wanes, never falters and truly never fails.
I hope this message inspires and encourages your heart to see that God’s love for us is perfect and never ending.
GOD LOVES YOU
When I was a boy I never liked going to church that much. I enjoyed the Sunday potluck dinners we sometimes had after it. They were a feast of country cooking. I enjoyed the Sunday school classes too. I got to see my friends there. It was the church services themselves that I couldn’t relate too. They were full of symbolism and rituals that my young mind couldn’t yet understand. The sermons and Bible readings were largely tuned out by me too. It was struggle enough just keeping my little body still in the hard, wooden pews. I longed to be outside playing in the sunshine. I would look around at the people dressed in their Sunday best while I tugged at my own tie. Then I’d glance at my watch and wonder when it would end.
It was during one of those sermons, however, that I did hear something that would stick in my heart, soul, and mind from that day forward. It was the middle of Summer and the heat made me feel even more restless than usual. I was looking down at my dress shoes and dangling my feet from the pew while the sermon went on and on. Suddenly, the Priest’s voice rose and got very loud as he finished. “Remember this!,” he said as I raised my head. “If you don’t remember anything else I have said. Remember this. You are loved! You are loved unconditionally by a greater love than you can ever imagine! God loves you, now and forever!”
Those words of wisdom found a place deep inside of me. I did find myself remembering them over and over again in my life. As I learned, grew, struggled, and stumbled those words stayed in my heart. They helped me to rise up and try again every time I fell. They helped me to find my own love for God, for myself, and for others. They became a central part of who I am and what I write. The one gift I hope to give all of you is this truth. May you always remember then that “You are loved!” May you always know that “God loves you, now and forever!”

Read and meditate on these scriptures:
2 Peter 3:9 “The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”
Romans 10:9-11 “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed.”
Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end. Then shall ye call upon Me, and ye shall go and pray unto Me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek Me, and find Me, when ye shall search for Me with all your heart.”
Psalm 107:6-9 “Then they cried unto the Lord in their trouble, and He delivered them out of their distresses. And He led them forth by the right way, that they might go to a city of habitation. Oh that men would praise the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men! For He satisfieth the longing soul, and filleth the hungry soul with goodness.”
I’m so glad there’s a place for me to connect with girls like myself and to be able to learn more about the bible and God. Thanks:)
Well, school’s back in session. Thankfully, everyone remained safe and healthy throughout the interim. I hope you all enjoyed your summer. My prayer for you all is that God grants you favor with everyone you encounter: teachers, peers, faculty, and other staff members. I also pray that u become and/or remain unashamed of your beliefs and become an example of God’s love. God’s commandments are two simple concepts, love Him and love others. Please display this love. Also, take the time to understand how the decisions you make now affect your future. If your mind can conceive it and your heart can believe it, you can achieve it.
Grace and Peace,
