Christian Teen Life

Welcome to the Christian Teen Life blog! Here, we'll explore how Jesus can help you with the struggles and stresses of being a teenager. We'll look at how both the Bible and psychology relate to the many concerns you may have about teen life in today's world.

I hold a Doctor of Education degree specializing in both the Bible and Psychology. After teaching undergraduates and training counselors for 16 years at Houston Baptist University, I retired as a professor of psychology and counseling. Additionally, I have been a Licensed Professional Counselor for over 30 years.  My wife and I are proud parents of two daughters and grandparents to nine lovely grandchildren, including a teenager.

I have seen teenagers struggling with depression, despair, and loneliness, particularly during the Covid era, so I created this blog to guide teenagers through those issues and to explore how Christianity can address the psychological needs of teens.
