A look into Life Hurts, God Heals

Hello, my name is Amanda. I am first and foremost a beloved child of God and I struggle with many things. I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, college student, and honored to be a leader at Life Hurts, God Heals. Life Hurts, God Heals gives teenagers a place of freedom. Free to be themselves, free to feel, free to be honest, free to let out all their hurts, habits and hang-ups in life and learn how to deal with them in a healthy, Godly way.

Just Keep Swimming!

Do you feel weighed down? Like someone just tied a backpack full of bricks to you and threw you in the ocean? Do you feel like your drowning so deep that you can't get out? What are you drowning in? Worry? Regret? Pride? Loneliness? What in your life is making you feel powerless?

Life Hurts, God Heals Semester 8 2015!

Three Years! We have reached our 8th semester starting January 2015! It has been one heck of a ride as we laughed together, cried together, and been there for each other. We have seen students come and students go, but for those who have stayed the course we have seen healing, maturity, and relational restoration!

As we start this new year, do you know a middle or high school student dealing with difficult life issues and in need of a confidential support group? Let LHGH come alongside of your teenager today!

They say it's better to give than it is to receive, I'm not always certain about that. I truly believe there is equal blessing in both. Yet, we have slid to one side or the other; either we give and don't know how to receive or we receive and don't know how to give.

You can always tell a great gift the moment you get it because you want to share it with others. Those are the kinds of gifts that keep on giving. But when we put our gift on a shelf and don't share it, it only collects dust and is soon forgotten about. So, what will you do with the gift given to you by LHGH?

Are You Rooted?

     When we don't forgive others it is like this picture. We let roots of bitterness grow and grow, deeper and deeper until they have squeezed every bit of love and joy out of us. 
     So why do let our roots strangle us until we can no longer breathe? How many roots of bitterness do you have growing in you right now? Do you feel free of roots because you have learned to forgive? Or do you feel so entangled with roots of bitterness that you don't know how to forgive?

Ready or Not, Here I Come!

Remember the days of playing Hide and Seek as a child? Remember how much fun it was? Do we ever stop playing Hide and Seek, is it a game we continue to play after childhood? Hide and seek is a game that we play as children that turns into actions and decisions we make when we get older.
