Warning signs/info: Teen suicide
First of all, it is important to realize that an attempted suicide is a cry for help. Troubled teenagers who make suicide attempts are signaling that they feel overwhelmed with life and the stresses that come with it. An attempted suicide is usually also an indication of depression. This can mean that a teenager has feelings, thoughts and stressors that he or she cannot handle any more. They try to solve the problem by killing themselves. You can help a troubled teenager by showing support and helping him or her get the help needed to learn to deal with issues.

Reuniting those who have unwanted sexual/relational brokenness with the healing Love, Grace and Truth of Jesus Christ:
- sexual addictions
- Every 6 minutes a child is sexually abused – in homes, schools, automobiles, hotels, motels, athletic fields, locker rooms, public restrooms and more.
- 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 6 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18.
- Only 1 in 10 victims are estimated to report it.
- Over 90 percent of child sexual abuse is committed by someone the child already knows, loves and trusts – parents, step-parents, guardians, friends, babysitters, teachers, coaches, ministers, etc.
- Child sexual abuse is seldom a one-time occurrence, and lasts on average 1-4 years.

Spiritual Warefare Resources:
As Christians, we play into the hand of Satan and his demonic host when we approach demonic warfare as a theoretical game or curiosity rather than a life-threatening conspiracy from the pit of hell. Spiritual Warfare: Christians, Demonization and Deliverance is a transferable, step-by-step training manual on spiritual warfare. It focuses on clarifying and explaining “how-tos” for recognizing and resolving attacks from the world, the flesh and the devil.

- Believers in Bondage (dealing with Pride)
- The First Open Door (lust of the eyes)
Biblical Counseling and Outreach – Dr. Henry Brandt:
Life is hard. It can be even harder without teaching and guidance to deal biblically with life’s problems. God often uses trials to strengthen the faith of His children and teach them His ways. But believers need God’s perspective on how to cure their problems, so they can become the fruitful disciples that God desires.
Biblical Counseling Outreach provides free, online discipleship resources that train believers all over the world how to “live God’s way” — teaching them to obey all that Jesus commanded. (Matt. 28:20)
Created on the principle that the family provides the foundation for society, the ministry offers a wide range of tools to help families become stronger. Tools that help you communicate more lovingly and effectively. Tools that help you rekindle the romance. Tools that help you become the very best parent you can be. By offering tools for change, FamilyLife empowers people to live in love instead of in anger. And thus the world is changed, one home at a time. FamilyLife is committed to helping people know and apply the biblical blueprints for maintaining a God-honoring marriage and raising children to become responsible adults.
