If You Need Help


Is something wrong in your life?

The most important thing to do when something goes wrong: talk to someone you trust. This is extremely important for the best outcome in your life. You may think you cannot bring yourself to speak to someone, but you must try.

If your life is not in imminent danger, you can start by looking for answers online. Places to look for help:

Think carefully about whom you can share difficulties with. Start with one or both of your parents. Think of your youth leader; pastor; elder; adult friends who know you well and have proven trustworthy; your own friends who care about you and have good judgment.

I Wanna Go Home!

“I’m tired of being here! I wanna go home!” My son whined from the back seat of the car. We had chosen to go to the park, but it had begun to rain unexpectedly. We decided to wait it out, but as we sat in the car, my son, bored, angry, and frustrated—and this time, more politely—asked if we could go home. I obliged and pointed the car toward home.
 
I agree with my son . . . I wanna go home! I don’t know about you, but things in this world don’t seem to be getting any better—in fact, they’re getting . . . read more
