Truth for Youth

Guiding Light is part of the Truth for Youth organization.

 

Objectives

I learned so much from Guiding Light. I learned how to save money for things needed, not wanted. I learned how to get along with others and to not always voice my opinion, even though this was difficult for me. Last but not least, I learned how to get closer to God because I don't know where I would be if it wasn't for Him.
