Help! I’m Lonely

In spite of being surrounded by people and continual access to social media, many teens like you feel lonelier than ever. Thankfully, God’s Word speaks into your loneliness. Jesus suffered the ultimate loneliness so that you can experience the genuine belonging you crave so deeply. It turns out that your feelings of loneliness are actually an invitation from God Himself. Your journey of belonging awaits.

For God to disown you, He would have to disown Jesus–and you can be certain that will never happen.

The LifeLine mini-books have a long history of biblical faithfulness while clearly explaining how the Scriptures apply to life’s struggles. It is wonderful that this series is now expanding to address issues that teens face. We all know that the issues being faced by today’s teens, their parents and disciplers are very challenging. I’m thankful that these booklets will address the current issues not only with biblical faithfulness but clear biblical, practical application.

Thank you Shepherds Press and The Wilds for beginning to fill a crucial void in biblical counseling tools.

“Unlike the many counseling resources we can find for adults, there are few directly relatable to teens and the issues they face. These mini-books bring the Scriptures to bear in a relevant way for both teens and those ministering to them.”
