The first thing you notice about Jasmine is a smile that lights up a room and soft, welcoming eyes. But, sit down with her for just a few minutes and you’ll be surprised by the road she’s traveled. I was surprised to learn that this beautiful, put-together mom spent six years of her life trapped in the sex industry where she was beaten, abused and turned to drugs to cope with the reality of a life she never agreed to.
When I walked in the door, a wide smile filled little Elle's face and she ran into my arms. For the next several minutes, Elle circled around the crowded room. Each time she made her way purposely back to me, placed both hands on my knees, and said, "There you are!" It was as if Elle wanted me to know that in the midst of a crowd, she delighted that I was in the room. 1 Chronicles 16:11 (ESV) says, "Seek the LORD and his strength; seek his presence continually!" It makes me wonder: Do I see Jesus like Elle sees me?

Divorce is not good, and I would know because my mom and dad have been split up since I was a newborn. I have been in the middle of everything and I hate it. Recently I have been wanting to live with my dad. Keep in mind I'm 14 years old and that I usually don't get my say in things. But now we are going to go to court soon and I will be able to speak my mind. My mom is loving and caring, but she hurt me deeply recently when she told me a bunch of lies about her and my dad's relationship. I found out the truth, and I despised my mom for even saying this stuff to me. But since I have been listening to 90. 9 KLRC, I have forgiven her for what she said, and now I pray that she will learn to know the Lord! Please pray for me about this situation and that I will find hope. Thank you so much, 90. 9 KLRC, you have changed my life.
