Sheer Faith: Get Real With God

The adventure begins at the end of your pen!

"Man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
1 Sam. 16:7 Sheer Faith Ministries has a two-fold mission:

-to instruct teens in godly living and encourage them in their personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

-to advocate for families in crisis-including mental illness and issues resulting from abuse or divorce.

The ministry emphasizes journaling for self-discovery and healing and a proactive, thorough approach in all facets of recovery.

"In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world."
John 16:33

Established in 1999 by Debbie Thurman, the ministry outreach includes her books:
From Depression To Wholeness: The Anatomy of Healing, Journaling From Depression To Wholeness: A 12-Week Program for Healing, Hold My Heart: A Teen's Journal for Healing and Personal Growth and Sheer Faith: A Teens Journey to Godly Growth.

Here's what folks are saying about Debbie's teen books and teen outreach:
