The average teen girl scores as high on anxiety tests as those admitted for in-patient treatment in the 1950’s. And that’s just one of a myriad of emotions you could be in bondage to. Do you suffer from negative feelings that just never go away? Chronic negative, overwhelming emotions could be evidence that you’ve believed a lie. No worries though! We’ll help you learn the difference between a healthy emotion or one that’s trying to warn you that something’s really wrong. 

Today, Alena gets real about the grief she faced when her mother suddenly passed away. Though she'll always feel the loss of the close relationship she shared with her mom, God directed her to Truth that began to set her free from living in chronic depression. See the first steps to take in finding God’s Truth by watching this episode of True You now:
