  1. Aliza,
    This is beautiful. God knows that He has you right where He wants you. Those kids, and especially teens, need you and you have such an approachable spirit. That is a true gift that draws people in because they don’t have to be afraid. They are at ease with you and that gives you the perfect doorway to ask the question that you did…”What do you think about Jesus?” And then allows you to let them know that they are deeply loved and treasured. That is one of the most wonderful gifts we can give someone…to let them know Jesus loves them. Thank you for being who you are… and for loving on others. I can see God smiling now!

  2. Aliza,

    What a sweet and kind nature you have to be there and to help this girl share her belief in the Lord and how He saved her. It was purely moving. He must have drawn you to her. I’ll be praying along with you for her and the baby’s safety.

    Have a blessed day,


  3. thanks to God for putting you there. see, God IS there in you. we want to cry but God’s going to see us all with the peace of a bush of raspberries.

  4. Aliza,

    This is a lovely story letting this 16 year old girl know her value and what Jesus really thinks of her. This hits so close to home. You are doing more good than what you realize in the young girl’s life.



  5. Aliza,
    God bless you for taking the extra time with this young girl. He put you in the right place at the right time!!! She needed someone to talk to and you were there to lead her straight to Him! You have a unique gift to be approachable, a good listener and trusted friend! Thank you for using the gifts God has bestowed on you and for being there for her!
    Blessings 🙂
