  • Daffodils by Bethany Ellis
    Spring is a beautiful time of year, and daffodils always mark its coming for me. But now I have an even greater reason to be excited and feel a twinge when I see the daffodil peeking through the ground…
  • The List by Bethany Ellis
    I have a list. It’s not what I ate today. It’s not my shopping list. It’s not all the stuff I have to do today. It’s not even of books I want (though I have one of those!). It’s what I’m looking for in a guy. Do you have one? I think every girl has a mental list of what she wants. Blonde hair, blue eyes, 6 feet tall. But what about the other stuff? I want you to help you make a list, right now.

Or maybe she has a bigger problem like sleeping around or using drugs or alcohol. Either way, good intentions are not good enough.
  • I’d Much Rather Wait by Tessa Hall
    In High School, so many things may lead us into thinking nobody loves us, that there’s no point in living. When we give into these thoughts, we feel empty inside—whether we realize it or not. There are many things teenagers now use to distract themselves from this lonely feeling, and one of them is dating.
  • Another Love Dare by Tessa Hall
    I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say God is our God. Of course he is. Even Satan knows that. But knowing that God is God and only attending church services and praying when something goes wrong isn’t what being a Christian is all about.
