Laura’s Story

I was there. Feeling terrible inside because I didn’t measure up. To be lonely, to be an outcast, to not fit in, to be the last one picked, all of these things surrounded me in school. I went home often with questions about how much I was really worth, and why this was happening to me. At the age of 12, a friend brought me to a youth group meeting at her church. It was there that I discovered a group of people who seemed to really want to know me. I didn’t necessarily believe them all the time, but I saw in their actions a sincere caring for me. Several years, discussions and reflections later, at age 15, I made a personal commitment to become a Christian. Now, many years later, God has led me into full-time ministry at Montreal Youth Unlimited to walk alongside other young people who are hurting and need to discover their true value. My passion is to mentor teens and children, teaching them about their value in Christ. Every young person is unique and has a purpose. Every young person deserves to know that they are loved by a living God who cares personally for them and wants a relationship with them. As I have been restored to my true value, I know I am called to show others how much God loves them.
