HELP WHEN LIFE IS HARD

Do you ever feel you could do with a bit of help to make sense of life? Or do you feel it's time to change your priorities? Request Prayer

At times we all have problems. We will all experience a degree of loneliness, sadness or perhaps even despair. It's normal. Life can be hard. Situations can change - becoming a single parent, losing someone you love, being diagnosed with an unexpected disease such as breast cancer.

We've located sources of general help and specialist help for adults and young adults facing all sorts of difficult life problems.

Some websites help via email - you can request prayer, ask questions, ask for advice or talk about spiritual issues.

However, if you know someone with a more desperate need, please visit the "Feeling Desperate" page. In particular, please note that when a person is feeling suicidal, they should talk to someone about their feelings immediately. People who feel suicidal should not try to cope alone. They should seek help NOW.

On a more upbeat note, we link to several FREE online lifestyle magazines and newsletters for men, women and students. We've chosen these for their quality articles on the workplace, true life stories, health, fashion, food, money, adventure, relationships etc - and because they excel at offering practical answers to life and living. And being online, they are clutter free, so that's one problem less . . .

Help for Kids with Problems at 'Kids need HIM' Kids can find life hard too - this link is to help you.
