Life Lessons to Bring You Closer to God Where are you on your walk with God? Perhaps you have a strong Christian background and already know that God is an integral part of your life. On the other hand, you may be confused and filled with doubts, wondering if God really cares about you. Or possibly you have had no exposure to religion at all and are unaware of the principles of Christian life. Chicken Soup for the Christian Teenage Soul is for all teens, no matter how they feel about Christianity or anything having to do with religion. These true stories about love, friendship, forgiveness, death, courage, relationships and going for your dreams show how God is at work in your life. Teens just like you tell how their faith has given them the courage to cope with the "tough stuff," the joy to live a fulfilling life, the strength to persevere when they feel alone, and the love and confidence they need to feel better about themselves. As you know better than anyone, you live in a time when temptations are everywhere, and it can be difficult to resist them because of the emptiness you feel inside. But drugs, alcohol and all the other things we do in trying to stop the suffering don't work. Chicken Soup for the Christian Teenage Soul will show you there are other ways to find happiness. Teens describe feeling totally loved and accepted by God in a way they never felt before. They speak about life changes that are not only profound, but actually visible to those around them. Peers and relatives were able to see a change in them after they surrendered to God and let his love fill that void. With the help of these stories, you will see that God cares about you when you think no one else does.Canfield, Jack L. is the author of 'Chicken Soup for the Christian Teenage Soul Stories of Faith, Love, Inspiration and Hope' with ISBN 9780757300950 and ISBN 0757300952.
