I Am Still Somebody

Teen Mom FB 2015

Our next book entitled, I Am Still Somebody: Encouraging, Empowering & Equipping Teen Mothers, will be published in 2016. There will also be a workbook and prayer book companions. In anticipation of this release, we are doing our first Teen Mother program, where 5 teen moms will be chosen to review all three books. There is no fee to apply or participate in this program.

This program will take approximately 8 weeks to complete. We will have weekly conference calls where we will discuss the weekly reading assignment and also get feedback from the young ladies on the content of the materials. Their reviews will also be featured on the back of the book. There will be a confidentiality agreement that must be signed by the participant and their parent/guardian if under the age of 18 before they can participate in the program.

Upon completion of the program, the young ladies will receive a certificate along with a gift bag of goodies. They will also receive autographed copies of all books. Please see timeline below for program deadlines.

Applications will be released on April 30, 2015 
Deadline for applying is August 28, 2015

You Still Have Worth

self worth

 

Sometimes when we make mistakes or poor choices we can lose sight of our self worth. We can also let the opinions of others cause us to look down on our own selves and we forget that we too are still somebody. No matter where you are in life right now, please remember that you still have SELF WORTH! Things may seem a little blurry right now and you may feel down but you still have SELF WORTH!

 

Don’t allow people to put you down just because you  are a teen mom. The statics are not who you are. You can rise above it and prove just how much worth you still have. Our decisions are a part of us but they do not define the very essence of who we are. You are going to have to be very selective of the type people that you choose to hang around. Their influence in your life and that of your child will be crucial. They will either encourage you to achieve greater or they will continue to tell you what you can’t do. Be careful who you allow in your inner circle. It’s no longer just you but you have another human being depending on you as well. The choices you make will also lead them. Our children often imitate us on various levels if we play close attention to them.

 

 

yourworth

 

 

You must believe in yourself even if no one else will do it. You must encourage yourself even if no one else knows the importance of it. You cannot depend on people to validate your self worth. You must know that on your own first and then others will notice it. How you treat yourself is the standard for everyone else including your child. You are still a jewel in God’s eye sight! You still matter! You are still worth it!

 

you are worth it

Strive for the Best at All Times

success

 

 

 

What are you doing to better yourself at this very moment? Take a minute and think about that. Now, write it down. Look at what you just wrote. Are you satisfied with the answer? Are you content with what you are doing right now? If you are the kudos to you and keep up the good work. If not, then only  you can change it.

 

You can’t spend your life thinking that you deserve a handout or sympathy. You have to get up and start striving towards your goals. What do you want to accomplish this year alone? Go ahead and write them down. I’ll wait…If you haven’t already completed high school, I hope high school graduation was your first goal. We cannot get anywhere in this world without an education. Next to God’s word, it is a corner-stone in our life and vital to your success in life. Are you behind in school and it’s frustrating to think about how you will catch up? Don’t let them overwhelm you. You can still do it! There is no better time to start than now. This can only enhance your life and the life of your child. How can you tell your child education is important if you don’t invest in your own? Get with your counselor, a teacher, your parents or a trusted friend to help you accomplish this goal.

 

Strive to not only finish but complete it with the best grades possible. Take pride in your education. You don’t take an interest in your education then very people will also. People only take you as serious as you take yourself. Yes, I know its hard. Yes, I know you may have missed an entire grading period but guess what so did I and I still graduated on time. I had my homework sent home to me and I completed while I was out for my 6 weeks. Even though I did the work, I still had a teacher who believed that I didn’t deserve any higher than a 67 because I was not in the classroom. I didn’t let that stop me. I didn’t let the judgment of that one teacher ruin my educational achievement. I pushed past his obvious disgust of my situation and graduated with my class. Don’t allow one negative person or a group of them to deter you from reaching your academic success. You can do it! You can achieve it! You can succeed! You are still destined for greatness!

 

Go ahead and get that high school diploma! It’s waiting for you with your name on it.

 

Sincerely,

Class of 1997

You Are Still Somebody

Just a reminder!

Empowering Teen Mothers

Ecclesiastes 7:20 (NLT)

Not a single person on earth is always good and never sins.

A lot of times we beat our self up because we’ve made a mistake, a bad decision or just can’t seem to get it together. We often find it difficult to forgive ourselves for many reasons. Don’t be overly hard on yourself. Yes, God wants us to walk in His ways and take on His characteristics but He also knows that we are human. He already knows we will mess up from time to time or even find ourselves in the same cycle of sin. That’s why He sent Jesus. Just to save us from our sins. We will all have our bad days from time to time and that’s okay. Don’t let people hold you up on this holy pedestal as if you are perfect and never have any faults. They are only setting…
