Stress is a function of the demands placed on us and our ability to meet them. These demands often come from outside sources, such as family, jobs, friends, or school. But it also can come from within, often related to what we think we should be doing versus what we're actually able to do. So don't forget to register your youth for our upcoming session to be held on September 13 from 11:30-1:00 at Jones Creek Library. Due to limited seating Registration is REQUIRED & FREE. Call us at 225-337-8896/225-448-1533 to register your youth or youth group.
