I think that when teens start doing bad things, people often let it pass by, saying…” It’s just a stage they’re going through, give them a few years and they’ll outgrow It.” but as I have heard before “The bad you so during your teenage age isn’t a stage, it is just sin!” and you look at so many parents and adults that will just let it go as a stage, well the reality of it is, much to often teenagers don’t even live through that stage.
And most if the teens that do live are scarred for life.
I recently started praying for every school that I pass on the road, and we pass one particular school, quite often, and I began to look at that schools reputation…not a very good one! But I do know that there are some Christians in that school and I found myself wondering… what if every Christian teen in that school took the time to tell, just one, just one person in that school about Jesus Christ, and half of the people that were told, prayed to receive Christ, Do you know what kind of a difference that would make??
It could completely change the schools reputation!! Teenagers have the potential to change the world, but too often they decide not to because of the low expectations of the world. What if we started living up to GODS expectations….NOT THE WORLDS!!!
I think it’s time that out generation, starts thinking more about what God thinks…NOT the world, not our friends…but God.
Think about it, when our days on earth on over, we are going to stand before a HOLY, JUST, and PURE GOD.
Not our friends, not our teachers…but God.

Our family went,
it was good, and I was glad to see some of the teaching teams that I havn't seen for a while, me and this teenage girl Ellie get along good, and I was glad she was there!!
there was a gym in the school we went to so when the teacher appreciation was over we played Volley ball and a little basket ball, it was fun,
well thats all for now,

-The bad you do during your teenage "age" isn't a stage, it's SIN!!-
and I was thinking, when teens (myself included) are tempteded to do wrong, so many times, we look at it as..."Oh, everyone my age does it" or something like that, but in reality it is just sin!!
and I think teens really need to start thinking that just beacause you are a teen, doesn't give you the right to be rude or rebelious because it's just sin!!!
this is a link to an encouraging sight...check it out http://www.therebelution.com/
this is a clip of the sight that I coppied and pasted....
The Rebelution's Do Hard Things Tour is coming to seven major cities across the United States in 2008. Each conference is a challenging one-day event for teens by teens who believe that our generation is ready for a change. Ready for something that doesn't promise a whole new life if you'll just buy the right pair of jeans or use the right brand of deodorant.We believe that our generation is ready to rethink what teens are capable of doing and becoming. And we've noticed that once wrong ideas are debunked and cleared away, our generation is quick to choose a better way, even if it's also more difficult.The Do Hard Things Tour invites you to explore some radical questions:-
Is it possible that even though teens today have more freedom than any other generation in history, we're actually missing out on some of the best years of our lives?
Is it possible that what our culture says about the purpose and potential of the teen years is a lie, and that we are its victims?
Is it possible that our teen years give us a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for huge accomplishments -- as individuals and as a generation?
And finally, what would our lives look like if we set out on a different path entirely -- a path that required more effort but promised a lot more reward?
We describe that alternative path with three simple words: Do Hard Things
