Do you ever hear a story and think, “How sad that they have gotten themselves into that situation! That’s too bad that they have thrown away their lives like that.”

At Teen Lifeline, we don’t believe that any story is unredeemable, that any teenager is too messed up or that lives are too terrible to be changed for the better.

In his book, A Million Miles in a Thousand Years, Donald Miller says, “We live in a world where bad stories are told, stories that teach us life doesn’t mean anything and that humanity has no great purpose. It’s a good calling, then, to speak a better story. How brightly a better story shines.”

We wish to tell you a better story where teenagers who were once hurting can find healing and teen parents who had no where to turn were given help and a community.

Let us share David and Lindsay’s story.

We love David and Lindsay’s story. It is a story of hope. It is a story where financial stress, prison and a lack of community did not break up a family, but brought them closer to God and each other. David and Lindsay would be the first to admit that they are still growing and trying to figure out life with three little ones. They are not perfect, but they have chosen to live a better story!

Every year, we are honored to be a part of The Hills Church’s Renew Weekend. This is a weekend where ministries who bring beauty from brokenness are supported. These ministries deal with the troubled and trafficked, poor and hungry, as well as, orphans, displaced and unborn.

Join us at The Hills May 16-17 to support these great ministries and causes. Visit for more information on how you can help!
