#DayOfTheGirl

International Day of the Girl was initially declared by the United Nations in 2011 to celebrate and empower young girls to rise up and fight for equality, safety, and their rights. There is a quote I once shared from a Mathew Henry Commentary that has stuck with me throughout the years. It goes:

She was “not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled on by him, but out of his side to be equal to him, under his arm to be protected and near his heart to be beloved.”

Today, show your love to a sister, friend, neighbor, niece, or any other girl and let her know she’s valuable. Below is a copy of my book, She Was A Girl First, feel free to download and share.

Día Mundial de la Salud Mental

Hoy es el Día Mundial de la Salud Mental. Tomemos esta oportunidad para recordarles a quienes nos rodean que no están solos.

“Quizas para el mundo seas solo una persona, pero para una persona eres el mundo.” – Dr. Seuss

World Mental Health Day

Not so fun facts (According to the World Health Organization):

  • More than 300 million people of all ages worldwide suffer from depression (and/or bipolar disorder).
  • Depression can lead to suicide. More than 800,000 people worldwide take their own lives each year, and even more attempt to do so.
  • In 2015 suicide was the 2nd leading cause of death amongst 15-29-year-olds globally.
  • More than 21 million people worldwide suffer from schizophrenia.

A diagnosis, a label, or a tag does not define a person. The above facts are not intended to shame anyone but to bring to light something very important: You are NOT alone.

There are very effective treatments for mental health issues, but often times we don’t seek them because we give into the lie that no one will understand. There are trained professionals willing to help.

Below is a 24/7 hotline from Suicide Prevention Lifeline if you are in the states and need someone to talk to:

1 (800) 273-8255

Lastly, I leave you with this thought: Even when it seems like everyone around has abandoned you, God has promised to never leave you nor forsake you. He loves you with an everlasting love and cares about you.

Casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7
