Simone, 15 years old

Name: Simone, 15 years old
Submitted by: Her best friend
Location: Berkeley, CA
What's going on?: Her boyfriend loves her but doesn’t show it. She’s losing hope that she is worth anything because she keeps giving and not getting. School is stressful, and she doesn’t feel like she’s worth anymore because she doesn’t feel as good as she used to be.
What do you love most about this girl?: She’s the kindest person I’ve met. She’s so talented and can do anything she puts her mind to. I’ve never met anyone who cares more about other people.
Anything else you want to tell us? Thank you!

Keturah, 27 years old

Name: Keturah
Submitted by: Herself     
Location: Greer, SC       
What's going on?:  Gosh where to start. A year ago, I left a long-term abusive relationship with a narcissist and around the same time quit my very well-paying, toxic-culture job. My life was pretty wrecked. The guy took everything and now I live in a family member's spare bedroom trying to put pieces of my life back together. I'm too scared to get a job again (despite a handful of superbrave attempts) and I do a lot of volunteer activity. I'm megabroke, studying for a gruelling professional certification (40% pass rate), and sitting with God a lot, because He is all I've got. So basically I'm scared and grieving and uncertain, but also free and hopeful.

What do you love most about this girl?  Well. I'm hilarious and kind. Intelligent and helpful. Learning my worth. Unafraid to try new things. Will talk to everyone. Probably a great laugh. Coffee enthusiast.

Anything else you want to tell us? I think I've probably overshared enough. But if you want to pray when you write, I would love that. Thanks for your kindness and encouragement.

What do you love most about this girl?: Her energy and love got softball her ability to be kind to others
