From the April 2008 issue of The Christian Science Journal

A Lot Of Times I walk away from my Sunday School class with some inspiration that I can take with me the rest of the week, especially when things get hectic. I've found that the subject of the week in the Bible Lesson usually relates to something going on in my life, and definitely at school.

High school is full of drama. Besides the pressure to get good grades, almost everyone has relationship issues. In between classes, at lunch, and during study periods, the conversation is always, "He said this," and "She said that." And it doesn't seem to stop. Everyone talks about who's dating who, and, "Oh, my gosh, this girl knew I wanted to go out with this guy, but she still went out with him anyway." Also, so many teens complain about their parents.

People—mainly girls with guy problems—often ask me for advice. One of my friends in another state recently started going out with a guy who lived across country. All they could do was talk on the phone, or IM. So she was getting to a point where she didn't think the relationship was going that well, but he wanted to continue it. She didn't know what to do.
