I speak at youth retreats, mother-daughter banquets, women’s events–basically anywhere girls gather!
I share candidly about the mistakes I made as a young woman looking for love, acceptance and self-worth. I then share the freedom I found in Christ and the healing and restoration He can bring to anyone who will turn to Him. I listen to stories, answer questions, and provide a safe place to share their stories and struggles.
These young ladies learn that Jesus and Ms. Teresa love them NO MATTER WHAT.
1 Timothy 4:12 (NIV)
eating disorders, abuse, date rape, self-injury, addiction, bullying, prostitution, promiscuity, teen pregnancies, abortions…
I’ve counseled young women who attempted suicide. I’ve helped girls find shelter. I’ve listened to stories that still cause me to shudder.
So many of these problems are rooted in low self-esteem and a skewed sense of self-worth. I share the TRUTH and help young women understand who they are in Christ and find their beauty and worth in God’s eyes.
It was fun and care-free and found out that there is constantly a battle over me spiritually.Kayla
I learned that 90% of eating disorders are girls and you don’t have to be skinny to be pretty.Kailyn
