I sat with my head leaning on my hand, my eyes glazing over as I stared at the computer screen and scrolled through my bank account. I knew enough to know it wasn't good for it to be going out faster than it was coming in. But I couldn't figure out how to make sense of all those numbers with dollar signs in front of them. I was never very good at math. When real life (aka. student loans, rent, and grocery bills) and math started to collide, I knew I was going to need help with what felt like a high-wire balancing act. I always felt a little bit like a failure because I couldn't figure out how to budget on my own. But then I learned there are people who are actually really good at this. The best part is, those people usually love to help those of us who find the numbers game a bit more challenging.
I don’t like heights, so when I arrived at the zip line park, my heart went into overdrive. As I stood on the tiny platform, there was nothing between me and the ground, hundreds of feet below. I put my gloved hands on the zip line while everything in me was screaming to turn around and go back to solid ground. But then I let go.

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.

We are grandchildren to my nana who is in need of a Kidney. She has been on the kidney transplant list for two years and we have been praying hard that God will provide one for her. She works very hard all the time to take care and support her family. My Nana is a Christian and truly believes in GOD and we all have faith that he has this. We wanted to do this for her because she does so much for us and we love her very much. We are not old enough to donate; we would if we could, but rules say no. My Nana teaches us about Jesus and how we must have faith through prayers that he will help us even if it takes a long time. She is going to have her transplant at Barnes Jewish Hospital. Pa Pa told us this and her insurance covers the donor. We really want to help and thought we would send this out by social media, because we listen to KLRC and know how this station has helped others. If God leads you to do so please feel free to call the following phone number 314-362-5365 for my Nana (Eileen Wilkerson).

I definitely feel like I've been in the desert, and after the last few days, I also feel alone, abandoned, and trapped. I know that the Lord is there, even though it feels as if He has forsaken my son and me. The needs keep adding up, but the solution is nowhere. I've lost faith in others. Nobody really cares, and the ones that do always have motives that either condemn you or want to control, even if they have good intentions. I do not want to lose faith in God, though. I'm trying not to lose faith in myself. I have always been able to take care of myself, and I have always been the one to take care of my family. Now, Satan is working over time to defeat me, but by the power of Jesus, he will not win! Jesus brought me here. Jesus will not let me be defeated. I'm not sure what God's plan for us is, and even though just about everything and everyone is against us, I will believe God's truths and not Satan's lies. I will not quit.
