Description

Anxiety is the number one mental health issue facing people today, and teens are not exempt. The causes are many—school pressure, relationship struggles, social media issues—and the results can be debilitating for your teen. If you are noticing concerning behaviors in your teen, such as an increasing discomfort while out in public, nervousness in everyday social interactions, a loss of interest in doing things with friends, a poor appetite, or even growing irritability or outbursts of anger, there are ways you can help.  

Counselor Eliza Huie gives parents a biblical overview of how to respond to your anxious teen with simple tools to alleviate the immediate effects of anxiety. Helping them become calm is the first step to digging deeper into the root causes of their anxiety. You do not have to be a professional counselor to have a listening ear and empathy for your anxious teen. You are caring for them well by providing a loving relationship where they can share their struggles, know they are not alone, and learn that the Lord is near and will help when we call on him.

“New Growth Press minibooks are my number one go-to in my counseling ministry with soldiers as an Army chaplain. I keep a display of a couple dozen outside my office, which are widely read by soldiers. On a daily basis, the practical topics meet service members right where they're at. Most soldiers will read counsel from a biblical perspective if it addresses their current struggles, which these minibooks do so well. NGP minibooks address the struggles well and provide gospel answers and hope! Thank you for making them available!” 
CH (CPT) Brent Sadler, Chaplain, US Army

“New Growth Press minibooks are a solidly biblical and practical ministry tool enabling you to give biblical counsel in a readable format to people in a variety of settings and can extend your ability to biblically counsel in places and people you cannot go or reach otherwise. I really appreciate how in about thirty pages they confront the problem and give biblical solutions and practical strategies for change. Also, having them available in easy-to-see wall racks within easy reach of our traffic makes them very easy to utilize. I highly recommend these excellent resources in helping people find biblical answers to their life problems, enabling them to find and grow to be like Christ.”
Daniel Hartwig, Pastor, Calvary Baptist Church, Dysart, IA

“Our church has been using the minibooks by New Growth Press for many years, and we have almost every title produced. In our church’s counseling ministry, the clear, concise, and gospel-centered message of these minibooks has proven to be a useful tool for our counselors to help to bring about true heart change with their counselees. We also have them prominently displayed in our lobby for our church family to pick up and take with them at any time. One of the most attractive aspects of these minibooks is that they are ideal for people who don’t want to take the time to read an entire book but still want to get practical and sound biblical guidance on a particular area of struggle. We also find these resources particularly helpful for those who may be reluctant to ask for help on a topic that may be of a sensitive nature. We are grateful for these minibooks and how God is using them in the lives of so many in our church family.”
Kris Hemphill, SoulCare Supervisor

“We have been offering New Growth Press minibooks in our retail store for just over a year. So far, the response has been very positive, and it is now a vital part of our BaaM (Business as a Ministry) strategy. Now, more than ever, people need biblical truth as a resource to successfully overcome life's many challenges.”
John Kim, Beauty World, Winston-Salem, NC 

“For three years, our church has been blessed by New Growth Press minibooks. We have them displayed right in our front lobby and they have been a great resource for church members as they seek information about a variety of topics. They have also been great for the ministry staff to see what people are dealing with. In a world full of counseling needs, New Growth Press minibooks are a great resource to have available at your church. Thank you to this ministry for your faithful service to the church!”
Zach McCraw, Director of Student and Family Ministries, South Elm St. Baptist Church, Greensboro, NC

“The New Growth Press minibooks have been a great asset to our biblical counseling ministry, as well as a great resource for many others in the church.” 
Paul A. Walberg, Coordinator, Emmanuel Biblical Counseling Ministry, Toledo, OH 

“We regularly encounter many people who are hurting. They are from many different backgrounds, experiencing an array of challenges. Truly our churches today have the opportunity to make a difference in our world by choosing to be hospitals for sinners instead of museums for saints. This is why I have gladly chosen to utilize the New Growth Press minibooks. They address real-life issues, helping people who are struggling to navigate their difficulties and find a full and meaningful life. These minibooks are substantive, practical and concise. I have used them for years and will continue to use them to minister to real-life needs. I do not hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for help in ministering to others or to someone seeking answers to the difficult issues we encounter on life’s journey.”
Sam LoBello, Director of Adult Ministries, Live Oak Church, Watson, Louisiana
