Church and Teens

We all know the horror stories about being forced to go to church each and ever Sunday,
and there are so many teens that see going to church as an inconvenience, but why do we
look at it that way? Could it be because we don't understand the concept? Maybe it's
because we think Sunday is our "sleep day" to catch up on the loss of sleep from the rest
of the week. There are a lot of teens that enjoy church because they understand the
concept, or because that is the only place they feel that they can be themselves. I can
honestly say that I have been on both sides of this spectrum. I was once a teen who
decided that every Sunday would be a day to sleep instead of a day to worship. Now,
however, Sunday's are the days that I get up out of bed at 8:00 and I go to church. I'm
sure you're thinking, why on earth would she want to get up so early just to go to church
to sing some stupid songs and listen to some boring man preach? Well, for me… it's
therapy for my soul and for my life.

Things have a weird way of happening to me when I least expect them, and this whole church
thing is definitely one of those weird things. I came to a point in my life about 4 months
ago where everything was going wrong and I wasn't sure what to do. My friendships were
fading, my personal life wasn't the best it could have been, and I definitely needed to
reevaluate my lifestyle. Just when I thought that nothing could go right, along came this
boy that changed me more than anyone has ever been able to. Although I didn't expect it
then, and I really didn't notice until recently, he has made me a better person.
