Kim Zweygardt won the pen! Congratulations, Kim! Thanx for helping launch R U Bullied. Kim is working hard on her presentations for Conference, and we will not disturb her. After conference, we'll ask for an interview.

DO YOU KNOW THE TWO BIBLE VERSES THAT WILL FREE A BULLY VICTIM FOREVER? Look for the verses highlighted in hot pink.

STICKS AND STONES WILL BREAK YOUR BONES, BUT WORDS WILL NEVER HURT YOU! Do you agree with this ancient ditty? I don't! Words can hurt and destroy.

Erika and Billy are soooooo happy. They sing, they dance, they laugh.**Read more on this subject in R U Bullied?, Chapter 12, #6, 9 and 10.

The twins weren't always happy. They were bullied. Often. And it hurt.

They found a great makeup to cover the bruises on their bodies.
But how does one cover a smashed heart?

"You're always...." Mom's favorite sentence starter.
On Monday Mom said Erika ate all the cookies. "But I ate just one," E wailed.
On Tuesday Mom said, "Billy, you're always lazy."
On Wednesday Mom just glared. She didn't say a word all day. "How are we supposed to know how to change if you don't tell us what's wrong?" E and B waited for her to answer. She didn't reply.

Bullies love lies and shunning.

"Could we be living in a double world?" the twins asked.
1)"Mom tells us how worthless we are.
2) Pastor Tim talks about our great value to God."

In August, P Tim talked about victory.
The first Sunday he said, "God loves you so much He gets off his throne and dances." (Zephaniah 3:17) E and B and their friends danced and praised God because he loves all teens.

Second Sunday, P Tim said, "Jesus loved you so much he left his luxury lifestyle in Heaven. He spent 33 years preparing to die for you. Then he died for you. After that he rose from death and went back to Heaven. "I'll come back for you," he promised. "I'll pray for you while I'm in Heaven." Many times Jesus said, "I love you." (John 3:16)

"Thank you Jesus! Thank you Jesus! You  paid a horrible price for our freedom. How can we thank you enough?"

Third Sunday, P Tim preached on Romans 8:1*. He said,
1) "The Holy Spirit took the entire eighth chapter in Romans to explain the first verse."
2) "If you have made Jesus Lord of your life, nobody can accuse you of anything.*"
3) "All you have to do is agree with God (confess your sins)."  I  John 1:9
4) "Why? Because Jesus paid the penalty for anything  his children have done/will do."

"What? No blame, no guilt? Ever?" E and B couldn't believe their ears.

"Jesus sees you as white as snow." P Tim danced across the platform. "Come on, let's celebrate!"

E and B and their friends have celebrated ever since.

When a bully accuses you, do you have to believe his/her words? No. The almighty, huge, victorious, loving God of the Universe has said it—"My children are free from condemnation." You are not guilty! Straighten your back! Walk like the winner you are!


Will's son Paul loves to remind his dad of the bad things he did when Paul was young. Will asked Paul how he would explain to Jesus that he still held grudges against his dad when Jesus saw him as white as snow. Paul simply repeated his accusations. He could not forgive! Will prays for Paul that he can forgive, because we all know what happens when we hold grudges. Matthew 6:15

When someone accuses you of sins God has already forgiven, ask Will's question.

E and B and Will can relax, regardless of what their accusers say. Jesus said it himself—"Be happy. I paid for your sins." Christians are the most blessed people on the planet!
