I needed Breathe to get encouraged and recharge. That process started listening to your sermon. You helped reverse a train of stress that was almost out of control. I hung on your words and clung to them in the week. You took my hand and lead me back into sight of the Holy Spirit. I am so grateful for your encouragement.

She placed tips for maintaining identity….in the context of teens today growing up with social media. She led self-reflection activities, discussed applicable Bible verses and had teens share pressures they feel with one another.”
