Steven

I am feeling very frustrated at the moment. Steven has been having some issues these past few days. He is choosing to worry needlessly about things and it is so frustrating to me that I can't seem to do anything to help him. He seems to want to cling to these worries, and it is throwing him so out of whack that he walks around like a zombie. Please pray for him. These teenage years are proving to be quite a challenge. Dave is a wonderful father, very willing to talk to him for hours on end, and very patient...mine is beginning to wear very thin after 4 or 5 days of this. All I have left are tears of frustration and helplessness.

Oh Rachel, I will say a prayer for him and your whole family. If you have time, keep us posted on how he's doing.

I understand him to a small degree. I was a worrier too. I think it had to do with my tendency to suffer from anxiety and depression. NOT FUN!!!!! I will definitely pray for him.

Sometimes parenting leaves one feeling utterly helpless. There are many times when all we can do is fall on our knees and cry out to our Father who knows all. I hope things are going better today.

Life is too short to spend all your time worrying. I will lift him up in prayer.
