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?
My car was packed and loaded with teenagers, suitcases, snacks, and one mom who was so beyond ready to get out of town and head to a cabin in the woods for a few days. We were making good time with the cruise control set on 65 and gorgeous scenery rolling by outside of the windows. In just a few short hours we would be at the cabin where there would be no work, no agenda, no schedule. Just days filled with fun. Then we turned down Peter Cave Road.

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.

I have lived here in Siloam now for nearly 18 months. I've prayed. I'm hanging on to my faith and God literally for dear life. I had to turn down a job interview because I couldn't afford the gas to get there. Even if I got the job, I'm not sure how I would pay for gas until I got my first pay check. I have two bills to still pay. I'll need rent for August soon. We're just about out of laundry detergent. I need my sinus/allergy medicine. I'm tired of not being able to meet my basic needs!! I feel like I have nowhere to go. No one to turn to. Nobody who can help. I've sold all I can of my things. I've offered many times to do odd jobs for money, so I can earn something. I feeling very hopeless and defeated. Yet, I do thank the Lord for the blessings He has given my son (4 years old) and me. I just can't keep doing this to myself and my son. I don't know what to do anymore. I find myself just wanting to give up, and that's not like me.
