Choosing a Career

Some young people in schools these days don't know what they want to be. That is okay if you are in around the 5th grade, but when you're in high school its time to start thinking about what you want to be.

First, pick a good quality about yourself. Ask yourself these questions: "What am I good at?" or "What do I like to do?" Whether it is sports or helping people there is always something you can do.

Then, figure out what you want to major in in college. Psychology/Mental Health, Social Work, Business, Culinary Arts, etc. Many colleges have a main "focus point" on what they teach, (i.e. VCU, (Virginia Commonwealth University) is known for being something to do with medical studies. It also teaches many other things such as Business and Culinary Arts.

Once you choose your major, start looking for colleges that will accept you or give you a scholarship. If you play a sport such as basketball or football and if you're pretty good there are a lot of schools that will offer scholarships in those fields.

Don't ever give up on your dream! Always pursue what is good.

Getting Pregnant at a Young Age

Many girls will say they won't get pregnant until they're married or have a boyfriend. But that doesn't always happen.

I know girls I used to go to school with who were 13 and 14 years old and they were pregnant. The questions they always asked themselves were: "Should I get an abortion so my parents won't find out?" and "Who's going to take care of my baby if I can't?" Many of them did get abortions and were very hurt.

You never want to be stuck in this type of situation. When you get "that feeling" to do something wrong with someone, please save yourself and do not do it. You will highly regret it later.

Here are some questions you should ask yourself. Comment and answer If you want:

Is getting pregnant before you're married right?

Does God like it when we disobey his will?

Is this the right thing to do?

How old is too young?
