Hey everyone -

I’m Christy Pierce, mom of 3 teens, author of the book Shut Up, and right now I am stuck in my house in California on Day 15 of mandatory shelter-at-home. UGH! We are trying to make the best of it doing puzzles, Door Dash and yes, too many video games  But we are also having some hard days. My daughter Annie is a senior and given the pandemic, she will never have a senior dance, trip or graduation ceremony. Annie will have to pick a college without ever having visited it because of the travel ban. Benji and Corey are sick of online school and miss their friends. The COVID-19 news reports are depressing and scary watching the death statistics rising. Like our family, maybe you are also wondering, “When will the coronavirus pandemic ever end and how do we keep going?”

All over the country, teens and college students are telling us that they are experiencing everything from anxiety, depression, fights with parents, loneliness and fear about the future. Whatever you are facing, we want to encourage you that you are not alone. We care about your pain and we are here for you. See below to see videos of other teens sharing their pandemic stories. We would love to pray for you so please send prayer requests to: info@sayshutup.com. Please click Find Help to see our resource page with links to online counseling, 24-hour prayer hotlines, mental health resources and inspirational God stories that will build your faith. We would also love to give you a FREE electronic copy of my books, Shut Up: Silence the Negative Thoughts inside Your Head and God is Whispering to You which will teach you how to hear God’s voice about the things that matter to you.

God loves you more than you can possibly imagine. God is with you and will help you get through this coronavirus pandemic and into the good, hopeful future ahead for your life.

With blessings and hugs,
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “Plans to prosper you and not to harm
you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11

Why Shut Up?

Our hope is that you would know which voices inside your head are from God, which are from your own pain, and which are the lying dark voices.  We want you to experience hearing the loving voice of God in a personal way that brings healing and gives you spiritual power to "shut up" the bad voices.

Featuring: Annie Pierce - talking on Teen Suicide to the Georgetown Medical and Clinical Society

Check Out What It Is All About

If you’re a young person, life is harder than when your parents were young. What you’re learning in high school, is what we parents were learning in college. The pressure on you to make good grades, succeed in sports and do insane amounts of homework is too much! I don’t have to tell you that young people your age are suffering. Most likely, either you are struggling or know a friend who is in pain. You know that teenage suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among teens age 10-24. You’re aware that many youth are struggling with eating disorders, drinking, drugs, feeling bullied, depressed, anxious and even suicidal. In the Bible, Jesus says that the enemy’s mission is to “steal and kill and destroy,” (John 10:10) and that “satan is a liar and the father of lies.” (John 8:44). Some of the lies the enemy whispers say, “you are ugly, you are unloved, you are stupid.” Other lies are more extreme such as: “harm yourself, cut yourself, or even kill yourself.” No one understands all this pressure and pain more than Jesus. In this book, Christy will help you know what messages you’re hearing are from God, what’s negative messages tearing you down and what’s from the enemy. God wants to give you spiritual power to tell the enemy to “shut up!”
