Talking - Communication is always good.
Beginning a conversation isn't always easy. Ironically enough, this is
the page I have struggled with the most, and you are the very reason
this site exists! I want this to be a place where you feel good, and
at the very least feel better when you leave.
We're adding some new things just for you. Watch for an announcement
about our poetry contest!
I wish I could explain to you how wonderful each one of you is - how
God molded each one of you and gave each one of you a destiny before
you were even in your mother's womb? That's hard to believe isn't it?
I guess that's why it's called faith. There are so many mysteries about
God, and in these end-time days He is revealing a lot of it. If any of
you have questions about your faith or about God, please write to me
through the Contact page. I will do
my best to either answer or find the answers for you. We at Molli's Garden
and Miracle Season Outreach would also love to pray for you, so please
also send in your prayer requests through the Contact
understood these days is difficult isn't it? There are so
many more pressures that
today's generation of young people - you - have
to deal with than we as adults ever had to. It must be very
frustrating and seem very hopeless at times. Does it?
page will attempt to concentrate on helping you to cope with that,
sharing situations with you that you can identify with, and hopefully
giving you some insight on things and ways you could change to enable
you to be the person that God intends you to be.
you'd like to tell your story, have a poem to share, or
have a question, please write us a note through the Contact
would also like to hear from those of you who have recovered from
depression or suicidal thoughts. Please send your stories
so that we can post them. They will be valuable in helping kids
to know that there is hope and recovery and that others have been there.YOU
valued isn't just a "kid thing". Everyone needs and
deserves to feel valued - even your parents and guardians. Parents
don't always have it easy either trying to prepare you for life in
the real world and only ther our own experiences to guide them so
many times. They react out of fear of not being able to do that and
not because they want to control you or expect you to be perfect.
Hopefully, you can understand that.
Not every one has been blessed
with loving parents, and I'm sure many of you have known only one parent
- or no parents. Life isn't always fair, and people are people. They
can and will make mistakes. There is only one that you can count on to always be
there and love you, and that's the Lord. He loves each one of you so
perfectly and unconditionally regardless of any mistakes you have made.
Let Him be your father, your mother, your brother, and/or your friend.
He's been my best friend since Molli's death in 2001.
kind to one another...
is one saying that if you ask anyone who knew Molli, or even take the
time to read through the Guest Book, you'll see that Molli lived by
this saying. Did you know that it actually is one of God's commandments? Oh,
it might be written formally a little differently, "Do unto others
as you would have them do unto you." but it still means the same.
kind to each other isn't a choice God gives to us, it's something He expects us
to be obedient and do. "Love one another, even as I have
loved you." is what Jesus told His disciples. So many of
us expect and take for granted God's love, and by His grace He allows
us to do that, but what has come to me so clearly is why we expect
that from Him, but we aren't willing to deliver the same back to God?
When tragedy hits us, or times are tough, we pray for help. It's
all God asks us to do, as long as what we pray for glorifies Him.
But if you had a friend who constantly asked you for help and relied
on you for support, but never returned it, how would that make you feel? Fortunately
for us, God is a big God and knows our shortcomings. He loves us
so much and knows how weak we are so He gives us every chance possible
to be who He wants us to be.
feel so down, and I don't know why."
may surprise you, but part of what you're feeling might just be normal.
Deciding what isn't normal is the important thing, as is figuring out
how to start feeling positive again. Everyone has periods in their
life when everything seems to go wrong, they feel like a failure, nothing
they do seems to be right, and they don't feel worthwhile. The
one thing for you to remember is that, "This too, shall pass." It
WILL get better. It has to because you haven't finished what you
came to this Earth to accomplish yet. Maybe what you're feeling
is part of the learning - part of what you need to go through to get
to what God's plan is for you.
Ever think of it that way? Probably not. It's pretty difficult
to think of something positive when negative energy is filling you up. What
our hope is, is that you might learn some tools here as to how to channel
that negative energy into something positive, because you're needed.
my daughter Molli, as well as her sisters, that no one has the right
to make you feel badly about yourself - no one. Just the same,
you don't have that right either. No one's any better than you
and no one's worse. There's my two cents worth. Please
take it to your heart and help change the world into a better place. There's
nothing more painful than remembering as an adult that you were unkind
or unfair to someone when you were younger and might have had a definite
negative impact on them growing up - just as there's nothing more painful
than to be an adult who was picked on when younger.
what, always believe in yourself, because no matter who you are,
you are loved by someone. To the World you may be one person,
but to one person you could be the World.
