Dear Grace...

  • I don't think God can really forgive me for all the bad stuff I've done. I'm so ashamed. I know God loves everybody but I've gone too far—He can't forgive me.

  • I'm so mad at my parents—they are so distant and almost non-existent. They are never there. Does God forgive me if I can't forgive them?

  • My friend is 16 and pregnant. Her parents want her to have an abortion. She doesn’t know what to do. How can I help her?

  • For the past year I’ve had anorexia. I have not told anyone. I am afraid to stop. God must hate me for what I am doing to my body.

  • My sister and I were brought up going to church. My sister left home for college last year. She now says she is a follower of wicca. How can I convince her that she is lost?

  • Why does love have to be so confusing?

  • How do I know if I am following God’s plan for my life?

  • In my past I have done things that kinda gave me a bad reputation. But I have changed. I believe God has forgiven me. How to I make others change their thoughts about me?

  • Is masturbation okay?

  • There are so many cute guys at school who aren't Christians. My mother keeps saying I need to date only Christian guys. What's the big deal? Why is it so bad about dating non-Christian? It's not...

  • My dad keeps yelling at me about my grades. He says I should be like my sister getting A’s. He says I don’t study enough. I try but he says I don’t.

  • I've picked out my career to start university in the fall. How do I know I picked the right one?

  • My boyfriend keeps pressuring me to go further. How far is too far to go?

  • My parents are always arguing. And they're always grumpy. They seem to have forgotten about me altogether. How can I get them to stop.

  • How can I help someone when I can't do it myself? My friend has a problem with cutting. She asked me for help but I cut, too. How can I help her? Can I help her?

  • Why am I so afraid of disappointing people? I worry and worry about this.

  • I am a 20-year-old studying to be a teacher. I have waited and waited for God to bring the right man into my life. I am finding it hard to be patient.

  • I need help. I'm addicted to pornography on the computer. My parents have found it and are really sad; my girlfriend told me that if I don't stop she'll dump me. But all my friends do it.

  • I have decided not to date until I'm ready to get married. My friends are all challenging me—they say that I won't know anyone when the time comes. How do I know I made the right decision? Should...

  • I hate my little brother. He's always in the way and my parents give him everything he wants. He's so annoying—how can I change him?

  • I need to move away to go to school next year. I keep pretending that it’s all really exciting, but I'm really scared. What if I don't make new friends? What if my professors think I'm stupid....

  • My church sucks. The music and service are so boring. I like the kids in youth group, but the adults always look suspicious of us—never seems like they really want us to be here. Whenever we...

  • School has been pretty miserable for me since my teacher discovered I was a Christian. I don’t know how to handle it.

  • My teacher seems to be down on me lately and I don’t know why or what to do about it. Do you have any suggestions?

  • I have a sister who makes my life miserable. She makes fun of me, especially in front of my friends. And sometimes she takes things that matter to me and wrecks them. What can I do?

  • My parents always seem to be on my case? I can’t seem to do anything right. Help!

  • I thought I could count on my best friend to keep a confidence but he posted something on Facebook that I hadn’t told anyone else. Now everyone knows. It seems like nobody can be trusted.

  • Life is so confusing. Some of my friends are pretty, some are very smart and some have tremendous athletic ability. But is that what really counts? I hear one thing at youth group and another at...

  • Today in gym class we had to do push-ups. I hate push-ups…probably because I’m lousy at them. Some of the guys laughed at my feeble attempts. Pretty soon most of them were making fun of me. I feel...

  • Yesterday I let a friend down. Do you think she will ever be able to forgive me?

  • What I learned from you at the youth gathering was so amazing. I can’t believe how it seems to fit what’s happening in my life. Thanks!

  • There’s so much prejudice in my school. I don’t know what to do when they make fun of the country I come from. Can you help me?

  • What a wonderful time we had at youth gathering last night. It just felt so comfortable to lead the group in singing. Is this what living as a Christian is all about?

  • I seem to always have these sexual thoughts. Every other guy I know seems to have “done it."  I am 19 and living on my own. Is sex before marriage really that wrong?
