"T" Talk . . . Throughout this book you will find God's presence. Within these pages, as teens share their confusion and doubts, struggles and fears, triumphs and hopes, they will also share their faith. Regardless of where you reside spiritually at this point in your life, I pray that when you read this book, you allow God to touch your heart. I know that being a teenager is not an easy task. I listen to teens every day who share their troubles and heartaches with me. They often come to me because they don't feel they have anywhere else to turn. They are afraid their parents won't understand. They would talk to their friends, but in many cases their friends are part of the problem. Some of them take drugs, drink or let themselves be pressured into sexual activity. Frequently, they engage in these behaviors because they want to escape some pain in their lives or they want to belong. Furthermore, they often just want someone to care. Can you identify with this? Have you ever felt alone or rejected? Have you sought acceptance through drugs, drinking or sex? Have you ever asked yourself, "Why can't someone love me unconditionally? Why can't I feel at peace in my heart?" Teens Talkin' Faith will show you that you can be loved unconditionally and that you can find peace in your life. It is a journey of faith toward God that will lead you to this understanding. If you are already strong in your religious convictions, then you may know what I am talking about. Perhaps you have experienced the feeling of peace that enters your life when you turn to God for guidance or solace. Likely, you have felt the joy that fills your heart when you focus on the Lord. You don't need drugs, alcohol or sex to find happiness as a teenager. You can find it in God. However, I'm sure that you know there is always room for spiritual growth. On the other hand, if faith has never been a part of your life, then I am very excited to share the glory of God with you. My message in this book is enthusiastically simple: God cares! You can flee to Him for comfort. You can rely on Him for unconditional love. I want you to know that God is available and waiting for you to call on Him. He is there to guide, support, and provide courage and strength. His patience is plentiful and His forgiveness is given freely. As a teen you may experience small traumas or painful tragedies in your life. You may feel, sometimes, that you are all alone. But you are not. God is always there. Often, it is just a matter of opening your heart to His presence. . . . . . . God loves me even when everyone else seems not to care . . . God is love. When teenagers look at this phrase, we usually say, "Yeah, right." We don't believe in it because we have always been told that if we pray, God will always answer us and give us whatever we pray for. However, we don't realize that God grants us our petitions in many different ways. I don't consider myself an incredibly r
