Quote of the Day
I was a handful growing up.
I think you go through a period as a teenager of being quite cool and unaffected by things.
Adolescence is when girls experience social pressure to put aside their authentic selves and to display only a small portion of their gifts.
When I look in the mirror I see the girl I was when I was growing up, with braces, crooked teeth, a baby face and a skinny body.
But when I was a teenager, the idea of spending the rest of my life in a factory was real depressing. So the idea that I could become a musician opened up some possibilities I didn't see otherwise.
Adolescence is a new birth, for the higher and more completely human traits are now born.
G. Stanley Hall
Teenagers today are more free to be themselves and to accept themselves.
The toddler must say no in order to find out who she is. The adolescent says no to assert who she is not.

As a teen, I was both anorexic and bulimic.
Every Teen Challenge ministry is responsible for raising its own finances, but we assist these works with finances, prayer and counseling, especially overseas in areas such as Siberia, Africa, South America.
If we as a nation are to break the cycle of poverty, crime and the growing underclass of young people ill equipped to be productive citizens, we need to not only implement effective programs to prevent teen pregnancy, but we must also help those who have already given birth so that they become effective, nurturing, bonding parents.

I wasn't going to have fun doing a teen movie again.
I'd never made a teen comedy in my life.
I hate it when people call me a teen queen.
The Teen Challenge ministry was born out of those humble early days of ministry. It now includes over 500 drug and alcohol rehab centers around the world, even in Muslim countries. These include homes for girls and women addicts and alcoholics, all which are reaching many.
As a precocious teen I dreamed of being Graham Greene. Well, as it turned out, I never wrote a great novel, sadly, and I never converted to Catholicism, happily, but I did do one thing he did.
