Building Healthy Families: Suicide is the second leading cause of death for Iowa youth ages 15 to 34. In at least 90 percent of cases, a mood disorder, mental illness or substance abuse are significant contributing factors. Young people don’t have the life experience to know that periods of depression or relationship problems don’t last forever, leading to an overwhelming sense of hopelessness. Adolescents are also prone to acting impulsively. In combination, these things create the perfect storm for a young person in trouble, increasing the risk that they would attempt suicide. If you are concerned about a teenager in your life, contact an LFS counselor for information about how to help, or to begin counseling to change their path.      Lutheran Family Services

We will spend 2 days at Petersburg, Kentucky at the Ark Encounter.  This is a full size replica of Noah’s Ark. The museum will go beyond telling the compelling story of the creation of life on this planet to proclaiming the bible as a supreme authority in all matters it addresses.
