For Teens

Far from home, but close to God

I am in my last year of high school and I live in Nicaragua. Last year, during school vacation, I had the opportunity to travel to Switzerland to visit my cousin and her husband, who have two small children.

The ultimate relationship

What can you do when relationships never seem to work out the way you want them to? This author shares his prayers about that question and how a shift to a more God-centric perspective blessed all his relationships—romantic and otherwise.

Would I ever see my dog again?

When his dog vanished and he couldn’t find her, this teen turned to prayer and heard a surprising message.

Join the prayer challenge

When you pray, is it about something specific? Do you spend most of your time asking God for things? This author offers a challenge: Pray without an agenda. Each day. Why? Read on.

It is what it is

When you’re faced with a problem, do you “use” Christian Science to address it? This author explains how healing happens more readily when we understand that we aren’t “using” Christian Science to fix something.

Feeling annoyed?

Is annoyance something we just have to live with? One writer says, “no,” and shares the spiritual ideas that helped free her from it.

Through a new lens—our brilliance!

Ultraviolet light is invisible to the eye. The frequency of its wavelengths is so fast that the eye doesn’t register its existence.

The greatest gift

Course correction

When a broken thumb looked like it might derail his soccer season, this author realized he had a choice. He could keep focusing on the image of the injury, or he could pray to see himself spiritually. His decision brought healing.

Pay attention!

Stumped by a project, this author had a breakthrough when she realized the idea she needed was already there. All she had to do was pay attention and trust God, divine Mind, to lead the way.
