Resources

No one learns to shut up the negative and sometimes dark thoughts in our mind without help.  We believe that God has given us many kinds of people and resources to help us learn how to hear the loving voice of the Spirit which will empower us to shut up the bad voices.   Listed below are some resources that teens have told us have helped them which we want to pass along to you….

Do you or a friend need help now?

Do you or a friend need help now?

If you or someone you know would like to connect with people who can help you right now, I would encourage you to connect with your youth pastor or a trusted teacher.  Prayer is one of the most healing things you can do.  My God is whispering to you book teaches you how to hear God’s voice.  It’s available on amazon and kindle, and if you can’t afford to buy one, please let us know at julie@sayshutup.com.  We have donors who have paid to give these books to teens and college students who can’t afford a copy.  I’ve also given you a list of resources below of safe people that can be trusted to help.

Remedy Live

Remedy Live:  We Chat.  We Listen.  We Love.

If you’re struggling with an issue and need someone to talk to please click the “chat with a SoulMedic” button at the top of the page. By keeping your issue a secret you are giving it power to destroy your life while it spreads as a cancer into your thoughts, actions, and relationships. Isolation is the worst way to live a full life, because it convinces a person that no one needs to know, that no one really understands, and ultimately, that no one really cares. When we spend all our energies protecting our secret from the world this mindset can create an independence foothold that feels right but eats away from the inside out. Let us help – we have private chat 24/7 with SoulMedics who care. Rather text than type on a computer? Text the word REMEDY to the number 494949 if you live in the United States.
