In the name of JESUS I rebuke this...

My husband is a youth pastor so we are around teens a lot.  I love each and everyone of them and hope they realize they have a GOD given purpose in life.

I just find it staggering that SUICIDE is the 3rd leading cause of death among 15-24 year olds!  WHAT!!!  

As a youth worker the last 5 years I have seen first hand many teens struggle with suicidal thoughts and low self worth.  It breaks my heart.  I just want to stomp and shout at the enemies lies that he is telling our teens.  IT IS OUR JOB TO ENSURE AND ENCOURAGE THESE TEENS!  Help them to gain a new identity in CHRIST JESUS!  

A few more shocking stats:
     -for every suicide completion there are between 100-200 attempts.
     - 15% of high-school students report suicide ideation!
This is out of control!!  Our youth should not be struggling with wanting to live!  Will you join me in praying for this generation?  The prayers we speak today have the potential to affect generations to come!  Not only praying will help but maybe you have relationships with teens around you... in your neighborhood, at church, workplace.  Help encourage and share the love of Christ to these teens.

Knot Genie Review and Giveaway

If you have a little girl and have not heard of the Knot Genie then you need to watch the following video:   "The Knot Genie™ and Teeny Genie™ Detangling Brushes were created for every mom that has endured the foot stomping and screaming matches that come with brushing their child's hair. With the Knot Genie, even the curliest, most knotted up hair practically slips through the unique bristle configuration – gently and painlessly. Try the Knot Genie on your kids (or on yourself) – you'll be amazed by the ease of brushing, as well as how it virtually stops breakage and split ends. You've wished for hair brushing standoffs to end. Wish granted." My Review:  Thanks to the Knot Genie for sending me the product to conduct my review.  I was not paid for this review and all opinions expressed are 100% mine.  I know I have grown so tired of my daughter coming to tears every morning when we did her hair. I was becoming to think she was the most

Dry Idea: Deodorant Review and Giveaway

I know most of you know I was at kids camp last week and I think I mentioned the humidity and heat that we had that week!  I was daring as I only brought my new Dry Idea  deodorant  that I had never used prior.  I had no idea if it was going to keep me from smelling like B.O or if I was going to have sweaty pits. So how did the Dry Idea hold up to the hot and humid days at kids camp???  Arms raised high during worship in the morning and in the evening!  :)  I was dry and I did not stink!  :) WOOT WOOT!  I had the unscented brand and I usually do prefer a pretty scent but it worked and they do have scents which include powder fresh and cotton dry that I might try in the future.  :) The Dry Idea Roll-On is 24 hour protection, fast drying MicroCotton Formula, hypo allergenic, and contains Vitamin E.  :) Don't like roll on's??  They do offer Clear Gel and an Invisible Solid.  :) Dry Idea provided a free sample of their Advanced Dry roll-On so I could review them.  However,
